I’ve been busy working with “Be Like Brit” the past couple days.
Not gonna lie, getting onto their schedule is rough.
I’m not a morning person, but I was ready to go at 6am with their crew today. It worked
out pretty well I guess.
I’ve learned alot from their two electricians that are here, and they are great guys to
I’ve also had a great time working with the haitian crew. My Kreyol is ginally up to the
point that I can be involved in conversations throughout the day, and I found out that
many of the guys on our crew are from other parts of Haiti and came to Grand Goave for
work. Delvar and Judelyn are from Cap Haitien, and Plimo (as he wrote on his helmet) is
from La Goanave.
Many people still ask if I’m married or have kids, and while it used to annoy me, it
really has been a chance to share with them that everything in my life is about what God
has. I’m not married, cause He hasn’t brought that into my life yet, and if He had, then
maybe I wouldn’t have come to Haiti in the first place, and most likely I wouldn’t live
So, it ends up being a good testimony to how God works in our lives, even when it is
through not doing something.
I also got an email from Xantrex back today.
It was unexpected, and will start to redeem them quite well to be honest.
They sent my come good documentation to try to repair some of the broken inverters that I
am working on.
My current body count is 5 broken inverters (All Xantrex, cause it’s the most popular
company here, ie, the cheapest).
I had gotten to the point of simply referring people to other inverters, because Xantrex
usually recommends we take the broken ones to their repair facility in Port-Au-PRince,
except that no one has had a good experience with that facility. So, I figured I would at
least ask them to help me to repair the broken units for Mercy and Sharing, La Croix,
Greg’s house, and Militon. (Plus the one riding around in my truck that I picked up
broken from someone, I just don’t remember who.)
I look forward to working on these things. I just need to get my housing/workshop figured
On that front, I may have a lead.
I may not be renting land, at least not yet, because a friend of mine is renting a house
that is too big for their organization, meaning they have room. It could be a good fit,
so I’m praying about it now.
Anyhow, I have to get up early in the morning, so I’m off to bed now.
Good night and God Bless.
-Please pray for me, as I continue working this week, that I can minister to everyone on
the work crew with me.
-Please pray for Creation. This is an awesome week for spiritual growth to happen in many
ways. We pray knowing that God will show up and change lives, but pray specifically for
anyone you know attending that they will have a new revelation of His love and grace and
purpose for their lives.
-Please pray for Cherith. We had a great week in Haiti, and, as many people have
expressed, it can be a rough transtition back to the U.S. daily grind. Also pray for
Daniel as he is out of the country again, and is looking forward to getting back and
celebrating (a little late) their 10th anniversay. 🙂
