Mercy's Well Report on Haiti Trip

From Mercy's Well email newsletter of February 1, 2013:

Our weekly update comes to you on a Friday this week, and we hope it finds you well! We have had a very busy week, and have so much to tell you about, so let's dive right in!

Brad and Greg returned from their trip to Haiti with Compassion International - and do they have some stories to share! To describe their time spent with the children of Haiti, a few words come to mind: "Blessed", "Humbled", and "Thankful". Not necessarily thankful for all the things we have here in the United States, although that is definitely a part of it. Seeing God work through Compassion to directly influence the lives of these people brought up feelings of thankfulness to God for who He is, and what He is able to do! He cares about EVERYONE on this planet - those with fancy cars in the big city, and those on a remote island with no electricity. God is so big, and so good!

Here are a couple of pictures we were able to take in Haiti. The first is a group of children gathered at a church awaiting our arrival. These children live on that remote island, with no electricity. Many of them had never seen white people before. The second picture is a young girl named Ashlee Bourdeau. Before we left for Haiti, we decided to sponsor a child from the area we would be visiting, with the hopes of getting to meet her face to face. We were privileged to meet Ashlee and her family. Words cannot describe the look on their faces when they found out we were her sponsors - truly life-changing!

There are so many more stories to share, and hopefully we will have more pictures and video soon! Another exciting opportunity we had this week was to fly out to Dallas, TX for a taping of Gospel Music Showcase. We were able to perform 8 of our songs for their filming crew, and sat down for about a twenty-minute interview. All of the songs and interview clips will be edited together to create a feature episode about us sometime in the future! Our episode will be airing sometime is Season 4 of the show, which will begin in August. When we know more about an exact date, we will certainly let you know!

Have a great weekend, and may you truly encounter and worship the Living God!

In Christ,
Brad, Greg & Kyle
