What a weekend – and there’s more to come! Pastor Isaiah arrived from Haiti last Friday, visited his cousin in Fort Wayne for a week, then traveled to Michigan to be with us. We hit the ground running!
On Saturday we prepared and set up the PPI Summer Picnic. Isaiah helped us mow, vac and put up a tent, tables and chairs. We had a full day of work but still had time to catch up and take a swim along the way.
On Sunday morning we shared PPI’s vision with New Life Christian Fellowship in Saginaw (watch HERE). New Life recently joined our support team, which we’re very excited about! Pastor Ken and Joan Cline, the GO Team and congregation have encouraged and blessed us so much. We look forward to partnering together in training pastors in Haiti and other developing nations.
Later that afternoon we welcomed many PPI friends and supporters to the PPI Summer Picnic. We enjoyed a game (“What Do You Know about Haiti and PPI?”), complete with prizes, tasty picnic foods, conversation and fellowship. After dinner Isaiah and I updated everyone on PPI and answered questions. Isaiah shared insights from James 4:7 – Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. What a wonderful summer afternoon and evening! Time with friends ranks high on the list of God’s greatest gifts. Time together enjoying our friendship and sharpening our focus on what matters for eternity ranks even higher. Thank you, friends, for engaging in the many ways we can do that together!
On Thursday morning, Pastor Isaiah and I depart for two weeks of travel on the East Coast. We will visit with present PPI friends and also with potential supporters in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia and North Carolina. Please pray for our travels and look for our updates in Where’s Pastor Isaiah? emails.
Christ’s love and blessings to you all. Enjoy the pics below.
