Aug 19, a team went to Montrouis Haiti, with plans to build a shop for a widow there. A little over a year ago, Madam Titi, a mother of six, lost her husband in a tragic moto accident, leaving her on her own. She lost her only source of income. Our team went there to help her. Our prayers were that God would bless us, lead us and that whatever he had planned, that we would be at peace with it. Our goal was to show this woman the amazing love of God. Madam Titi was not a Christian. We had hired an experienced Haitian to help us, but he did not show up. So we started without him. To our delight, Madam Titi, her kids, stepped in. Then the neighborhood kids started to help! Then people of the community joined in, once they knew what we were doing!! it was amazing!
While there, we visited the kids of Kay Refij, held a VBS in the mountains, and visited the farm that was being built to support Kay Refij.
By the end of our trip, we were able to fill Madam Titi's shop with items to sell. On Saturday, we prayed over her and her business, and asked God to bless this work.
On Sunday , Aug 27, we prepared our team for church, but realized we needed to hang Madam Titi's sign on her shop. While we were doing that Madam Titi's son came to us, and said that she wanted us all to know that she was going to church!!! This brought me to tears.
This trip was one of the most amazing trips I have been on! The people of the community, came to see us off, the day we left, and everyone was in tears. This team and the community had bonded together, through God, to bless us and Madam Titi. I am so proud to be a part of this!
