We just finished our first full day in Haiti. We worked with some kids doing crafts, kicking a soccer ball around, and throwing frisbee. We also talked with several Haitian pastors encouraging them and listening to them.
Tomorrow I am blessed to preach the Good News of Jesus in a local church at Grand Coave. I’m preaching about John the Baptist questioning if Jesus was the “One we’ve been waiting for…” John is questioning this because John’s life is not turning out how he thought it should. He expected Jesus to be fulfilling John’s idea of what John’s life should be like. Jesus had other plans for John – like a beheading.
Most of you reading this have a pretty prosperous path compared to the people here. You’re on the internet, enough said. The people I’m preaching to tomorrow have a very tough path. Jesus simply says, “Follow the path I have for you.”
