I've been wanting to join Friday Flashback Photo for some time. With all that is going on in Haiti right now, I thought I'd post some pictures from a missions trip we took back in 1994.
My heart has just been broken for this nation. Please remember them in your prayers daily.
Our church went to work with a wonderful organization called New Missions. It is located right by the ocean in an area called the Leogane Plain, which is about 25 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince.
New Missions has 21 elementary schools, several churches, a medical clinic, a high school, a Bible college and a Missions Training Center.
As with any missions trip you go thinking you are going to bless others, and you come away feeling so humbled and blessed yourself by the entire experience.
We always gained so much more then we ever gave, and since that trip I've never stop praying, supporting and loving the wonderful Haitian people.
New missions received some major damage to several of their buildings. In many cases the destruction was beyond repair. Numerous buildings will need to be completely torn down and re-built. Temporary structures will need to be erected in the meantime.
Please pray about giving some support to help this nation that has been so devastated. You may have a favorite charity that is helping in the recovery efforts, but if not New Missions could really use your support at this time. No matter what, your prayers will make a major difference.
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day. Isaiah 58:10
