ISA 58:8-14

Isaiah 58:8-14 (New International Version)
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness [a] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. "If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
11 The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
13 "If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD's holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words,
14 then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob." The mouth of the LORD has spoken.

This reading says it all for your trip to the "sun scortched land" and the work you all have done this week - may you rest well tonight and be prepared for your journey back home tomorrow. We pray for God's protection on you all for a safe journey back hom tomorrow. What are great work our Lord has done thru you all this week.

One more day!

Hello GoTeam, I hope you are all having a good time on your last day of your mission. You guys have done GODS work over there and you all should be proud, (even tho pride is a sin). I know I am very proud of my Husband J.R., for him to go with out A/C for seven days is HUGE! Can't wait to hear all the stories.

J.R. you inspire me, for you to go way out of your element zone and do it with grace and with a smile on your face. You just keep taking my breath away.

When we met I was overwhelmed with the idea of you,
When we got to know each other I learned that you were a person with strengths and weaknesses like everyone else
When we got closer I was overwhelmed with the idea of love
Now as time has passed, I am no longer overwhelmed with the idea of you and love, but I am more than overwhelmed with you and the love we share
-Susan Polis Schutz

I miss you and can't wait to see you!

This is Mislinda, She was adorable enough for both of us, so my ugly mug didn't need to be in the picture anyway. She hung out with us all day, she even worked the bucket live
Yes Virginia, Their is a Vincent or "V" as many Haitians have come to affectionately call him. He is the youngest member of our team, thus the blunt of jokes and being teased, but he is a wonderful young man and takes it in stride. He has done an outstanding job of documenting our trip.
