First Day On the Ground

Mark and Travis transported medical supplies to Pestel 86 miles to the west of Port au Prince where more supplies are needed tomorow. Zach and Brian dropped in on a 4 story roof top to deliver goods to Pastor Roro an old friend from our last adventures in Haiti. Simon Tanner and Brian secured more medical relief from humaneca to be delivered in the helicopter. We will be delivering supplies to Bone Finn and Christianville tomorrow. Supplies delivered by Mark Schiffindecker to Port au Prince then transported to Christianville by helicopter.

The facts of course do not tell the whole story of what is actually happening in the lives of those serving and the lives of those being served. They start each day with prayer for safety and to open their eyes to the ministry opportunities that are before them.

As always thank you for your prayer and support.

This morning as I listened to WRMB 89.3 radio the woman from the station talked about her journey down to Haiti to see what was REALLY NEEDED right now. The first people she ran into were Brian and Travis. Praise God for knowing whose hands she was in as she described how Brian walked her around and introduced her to several people. As she spoke about Samaritan Air and the helicopters brought down to assist the work, she stated how $ for fuel for Mission Flights Interntaional and Samaritan Air was a key right now. She saw the "Mash Unit" set up at the airport, with the children and people set up on cot after cot being treated with what little there was!

Joy flooded my heart with prayer and worship of our Soveriegn Lord and His mighty hand in all of it. The hands and feet of Christ walking through the lives of those who have trusted Him with their lives, truly are beautiful to behold as they bring the peace of His gospel with them! Praying for His protection, His finances to be used, and HIS Glory to be on the lips of all who are ministering and encountering the very hand of God in the love and selfless acts being done.
