Mercy's Well Haiti Trip Update
From Mercy Well's email newsletter of January 24, 2013:
What a week it has been! Before we get into what's been going on this week, we want to take a few moments and share with you about our previous weekend. Victory Baptist Church in Bonneau, SC was our first stop. It had been a couple of years since our last visit, so we were able to share some new music with the congregation. Pastor Jim, Latesha and the folks at Gray Hills Baptist in Beaufort, SC hosted us for our Sunday evening service. It had also been about two years since we last partnered with this body of believers, and it was so nice to see them and re-connect once again.
We want to thank you all for remembering Brad and Greg as they have been traveling across the country of Haiti this week. I (Kyle) have been in touch with them briefly, as internet access becomes available to them. Here is an update posted by Zane King, one of the Compassion leaders on this trip, at about 10:30 PM on Wednesday:
Just returned to Port Au Prince after spending the past couple of days
on an island called Ill-A-Vaches, where the only way around is by boat
or foot. No electricity there either. We...had church with some of the most
amazing people on this planet! I'm blessed!
Please continue to lift this team up in your prayers, as their week is only halfway finished. They will be arriving back in the States sometime on Friday, where we will rendezvous in Florida, and head out to our dates for this weekend!
Thank you all for your prayers. Have a blessed week!
Brad, Greg & Kyle
