Welcome to the Healing Haiti + Eagle Brook Mission Blog. We invite you to follow mission team members as they experience what God is doing both through them and in them while in the mission field of Haiti.

'For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Yesterday 8/4 we went to Gertrude's Orphanage. This Orphange is the home for special needs children. As we walk into the home we are flooded with children. They are so eager to touch someone. We spent time playing, blowing bubbles, drawing pictures and holding the children. My favorite part was massaging oil onto the children's scalps. The children just loved the oil on their dry scalpes and were in such need of some healing touch. They even returned the love by putting oil in my hiar. How cute! It was so peaceful watching them all relax and enjoy.

Then we went to Guiliaume's Orphanage. The children all lined up to sing us songs about God. It was so beuatiful. Then we did a little spa day with nail painting, massages, necklace making and hair glitter. I did some more head massages with the oil. I was amazed how the boys loved the oil on their scalpes as much as the girls. We finished by playing some soccer with the kids and then they sang us a song to say goodbye.

It was such a peaceful day watching these children enjoy these small gifts of love and touch. I loved watching the rest of the team shine with Gods love to help his children. God is Great!
