Officially one year ago today I was wrapping up my trip in Haiti. Looking back it was one of the greatest adventures of my life. On one hand I was able to help a northern village and preach in Port Au Prince, and on the other hand Haiti helped me reach that next level in my faith. I would not be where I am at today without Haiti and the wonderful people there.
While I was there, I experienced a couple days of real darkness. In earlier journal post I talked about some of the things that bothered me on my trip, but now I realize the darkness I experienced was Satan attacking me spiritually. He knew the outcome this trip would have on me, and he did everything he could to break me down mentally. Like any muscle sometimes the brain needs to be broke down in order to grow stronger. Overall I am mentally and spiritually healthier because of this trip.
On this anniversary I want to encourage everyone to get involved in Missions. Maybe you cannot go on a trip, but you can support one financially and with your prayers. Take action, and get involved. Even as I speak the country of Japan is in desperate need. Pray that God will open doors, and that this will be an opportunity for mission teams to go in and spread the good news. Pastor Shannon O’dell wrote an article on 7 Ways to Pray for Japan. Be sure to check it out.
Also, please pray for my brother in Christ Bill Moore and the AFDC team who are currently in Haiti. Haiti needs your help. Please consider supporting this endeavor by contacting the Aid For Developing Countries. www.AFDC-Haiti.org
