Sarah in Haiti

Check out all that Sarah is experiencing in Haiti. I talked to her tonight and she is so full of joy! I am completely jealous to not be sharing these moments with her. I can't wait till next month that we all go. God we pray that you will continue to work through Sarah, Britney and Hu as they plan, pray and be in relationship with our friend and family in Haiti. Give them rest this evening and prepare them for yet another great and wonderful day tomorrow. Help them to search you in all and work through the struggle and frustration that is so common in work and service of this type.

You can follow Sarah's time in Haiti on her facebook at!/profile.php?id=505155143

Also follow Britney Winn who is traveling with Sarah. Britney is the missionary working on behalf of First United Methodist of Shreveport. Her blog "Stories about Justice and Creativity and Haiti"

Sarah has made it to Haiti. She landed this morning and is making their way from Port-au-prince to Les Cayes. There they will visit some of the Orphanges that FUMC Shreveport supports. Sarah is there to scout our trip next month. They will visit with the Pastor who we will work on the school and church in the small remote village. Here is a picture of the poverty that I am sure is affecting Sarah as they travel today.
