Ryli has always been interested in medical missions…ever since she was a wee tot. She has the heart of an evangelist and a fascination with healing and the art/science of medicine.
I had been searching for a medical missions trip for Ryli as a graduation present. Haiti seemed close by and yet worlds apart from our own comfort zone. As God would have it, a neighbor has a medical missions trip to Haiti twice yearly and an ongoing local effort at tutoring children from Haiti in Palm Beach County! The trip was leaving in less than two weeks from the date I found out about it and now we are less than 48 hours from departure!
As we have been busy going from store to store buying scrubs, snacks, shoes, getting medicine to protect against Malaria, and stickers for the kiddos we will have the opportunity to serve, I have been praying God would do a major work in our lives. I am praying He will reveal things to Ryli and I and teach us so much. I know I will miss my other children immensely while we are gone…and I am sure David will have his hands more than full without me…but in the midst of all this sacrifice we are expecting God to show up big time.
Will you pray with us and for us?
Have you ever been to Haiti?
Do you have any testimonies you would like to share in the comments below about a missions trip you took and how God showed up?
Ryli and I want to thank you in advance for all your prayers during our travels! I can hardly wait to share stories and photos with you all!
