Update from an intern and a prayer request

RMI intern, Dawn Shoemaker, has posted 2 new blog entries.  You can find her blog here.

Some excerpts:  “Wow what an amazing week. I went out with a team to a town called Cherette. It's a little north of Les Cayes. It wasn't a long drive but it sure gave my heart a leap when we drove through the very crowded streets of the small market. The trucks barely made it through. When we arrived at the church we were greeted with a huge group of kids singing with the pastor, his wife, and church members. They welcomed us with such gratitude, love, and happiness. I can't even express the overwhelming feeling I had to be already loved by people who had no idea who I was.”

"Sunday was so much fun. There was clapping, joyous singing, and love all around. The Haitians sing so beautifully. Just one night and morning and I could already see God in the peoples’ eyes and hearts. We had a service that night also. It was so much fun. We sang and danced! Out of the whole trip the singing and dancing, praising the Lord was my favorite.”

She spent her first week out in the country with a Sister Church team from Estero, FL.  This week she is in Cayes helping Marilyn McLaughlin with the Hope For Kidz Program. 

Pray for the wife of Samuel Moise, one of RMI’s national staff.  Last week she was in a motorcycle accident and broke her leg above the knee.  Since there was no orthopedic doctor in Cayes, she was transported in an ambulance all the way to Port-au-Prince.  She is in a hospital there awaiting an operation.  Thankfully the company she works for is taking care of most of the expenses.  Pray for wisdom for the doctors and patience & strength for Sam & his wife, Isman.
