The Lord blessed us with a safe and uneventful trip from Atlanta to Port au Prince, Haiti. Our first day here went very well. We met with the two head pastors that we've been corresponding with for the past few years. We had some really good and frank discussions.
Tomorrow we'll meet another pastor who is affiliated with the group before we go to see the orphanage and then more meetings in the evening.
Friday morning and all day Saturday will be spent meeting with ten pastors who wish to officially organize a new Lutheran church body in Haiti. And more meeting/discussions will take place with the head pastors in the afternoon and evening on Friday.
We're looking forward to a busy and productive next few days. It is such a privilege to ne involved in this task of proclaiming God's saving word to those who seem so eager to learn and grow in their faith and understanding of God's word!
