Mar 012011

Well, this might be my last post before heading to Haiti on a mission trip.  I am going to help with a teen retreat.  As usual, I face the trip with a mixture of excitement, fear and trepidation.  I am anxious.   What if I don’t have enough material?  What if I don’t have the right material?  I don’t have the energy.  I don’t have the right personality.  I am not prepared.  I can’t do this.

So I ask for your prayers.  I ask that you pray for the youth of Haiti.  Pray that God will touch their hearts.  Pray that God will change their lives.  Pray that God will do a mighty work.   Pray that I will not get in the way. 

That is my prayer.  If i can but go to Haiti and see God at work, i will be blessed.  If He, in some small way, uses me in that work, i will be greatly blessed.  He is in charge.  It is His work.  And when i get back in a little over a week from now, i will tell you some great stories of what HE did while i was in Haiti.

  1. Dad,

    Thanks for your prayers. Yesterday was a great day. We are starting the final day of the retreat in 2 hours and I am not sure what all I am supposed to share today. I beieve God will make it known in His time.


  2. It is Sunday evening son and I am thinking of you. Praise the Lord for a good day both there and here. You are in my prayers and I pray for the Divine flow through you to the hearts of our friends in Haiti. He is using you, how proud I am of you my son. Looking forward to seeing you again. Much Love. dad

    Give our love to all of our Haitian family.

  3. Pastor Kerry,

    Thanks so much for your prayer. God heard and answered it today. Keep praying. Tomorrow is another day. 🙂


  4. It’s Friday evening about 8:35 p.m. and the Lord brought you to my thoughts… “Lord, I plead Your favor for Your glory on Mark and those taking part in the Haiti Youth experience. Speak Your words through Mark and make him to be at perfect peace as You surprise him with a flow of Your Truth from his lips as he is Your willing witness to never-dying souls. We pray for his life’s protection, but most of all for Your Light’s Projection. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

  5. HE WHO began a good work in you, will be faithful to complete it! Amen. GOD-speed!

    • Kerry & Dad,

      Thanks for the ecouragement, support and prayers. I am leaving in the morning. Once there, if I can find time and internet access, I’ll try to post some updates, perhaps as comments to this post.

      May God be glorified in all we do,


  6. We will be praying for you. Remember we are called to bear fruit not produce it. I believe all Christian work is done from relationship. Love you son and thanks for all you do for His Kingdom. dad
