I have returned home after a wonderful youth retreat in Haiti.  Below are some words to describe what was there.

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.
