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.’

God's Smiling Face

   Today we had the priviledge of worshipping in a Haitian Tent Church.  It was like nothing I've ever seen before.  The Haitians worship and pray with shuch passion that they literally embody the command to "cry out to Jesus"  Then after another delicious breakfast, we headed out to the home for the sick and dying babies.  The particular little boy that God chose for me to hold today had quite the little personality.  He had a tight grip and thought my fingernails were facinating.  He would go from joy to tears at the snap of a finger. After a big bowl of rice and beans, it was time to go and he screamed as his motionless litttle body just lay in his crib. That broke my heart.  The good news is I learned from the people who've been here before, the living conditions and level of care is greatly improved.
    Next, we went to an orphanage for handicapped children.  To see the sheer joy on the faces of the kids when they realized they got to go outside was priceless.  The last little girl I brought out just couldnt contain her silent squeals of happiness when she saw that she could reach up and grab a leaf off of a nearby tree.  She held onto that leaf , that gift from God, with all her might...so proud/thankful to have it.  This little girl has forever touched my heart.  We ended our day with some great group connection and prayer.
      Thank you God for sharing your smiles with us today!
Bonswa from Haiti!
