down time 

this week seems so long but so short all at the same time. 

we have our surgery team here so there are tons of people all over campus. they are here for one more week. they have been such a blessing to everyone they come in contact with. they have changed so many people’s lives with the surgeries they perform. they also have had an impact on the community when they are not in surgery. each person is so different from the other, but they work so well together! 

this week i had a team for only two days because then they went to the mole (one of the other campuses in the northwest part of haiti) my group was made up of four people. they were so fun. two of the people, an older married couple, were here when the land was purchased to put the mission on. so listening to them tell stories and watch as they were reconnected with old friends made their time here so special. even though their time was short on this campus, they made an impact. they taught some of the miriam center kids how to build benches (which was such a blessing) and they just did little odd and ends fixing around campus. 

after my team left i had down time for the rest of the week. i spent my time holding babies, hanging out in the orphanage and hanging out in the miriam center. i also got the opportunity to take charge and lead brothel ministry on friday. 

through my downtime i had so many opportunities to talk to God and just listen to Him. lately i have been overwhelmed by plans of the future. through my downtime and prayer, i have gotten so much peace about Gods plans for me and what that looks like even in the next few months. i am constantly being reminded that God has a plan for me and that is the best plan for me, even when i don’t think so. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” Romans 15:13 

there is a new team coming in tomorrow (Monday) and i am so excited for them to arrive! i can’t wait to see God work through them and through those around them. 

please keep the teams in your prayers as they do ministry here on campus and off campus. also please continue for health for everyone here. 

thank you all for your support and love!!!!! 
until next week,
