The team will be in the Middle East until April 8th, so please hold them up in prayer.  Charles and Debbie shared these prayer requests:

How can you cultivate an atmosphere of prayer in your home?
Prayer is a central aspect of the Christian life. Yet, many of us may face questions like, “why do we pray?” and “how should we pray?” In this Parent Connection, we refelcted on the gift of prayer in our lives—what it is, and why we do it. We discussed barriers to praying and we shared practical ideas for ways to pray as a familiy.

home at PDX

Home sweet home!  We were sent on our way with hugs and messages of love and gratitude, both to the team and to Glenwood.  That word is uttered in loving tones by everyone we meet.  Glenwood's support is recognized and greatly appreciated.  And sending a team is vastly appreciated and very encouraging to Wawa & Josette, Johny & Rosadite, Lauren & Mason, and the teachers & students at Merger.

Thank you for your part in this visit and supporting Haiti efforts.

Merger Kindergarten

We dedicated the house today, and visited Merger.  Compared to the slum we've been in all week, Merger is lavish!  There is space between the home; trees; and grassy open spaces.

We had a lot of fun interacting with the students during their recess time.  Some of us got to meet our sponsored children.  We also delivered some school supplies from Glenwood.  Most of the kids we talked to said they love Glenwood and their sponsors.

Working on the roof

Today we put the finishing touches on the house. The roof went on, and the floors were completed.  We took photos with our new friends.  It's very enjoyable to see the finished product, and to share in the workers' sense of accomplishment.  Our team is breaking up tonight, so we took advantage of the free afternoon and did our Bible study and daily de-brief before dinner today.

From the team:

When I wasn't helping work on the house, I got to spend time with Jeff, Jona, Wawa, Johnny, and Rosadite hearing about the ministries they are invested in. It is so encouraging and exciting to hear how God is working through STEP and the school in Merger! -Nathan

Nathan and Kenny

Today we worked on the house.  We met up at 7:30 and crossed over to The Community through an opening in the wall.  We wound our way down dirt paths between tin-walled homes, and it took 90 seconds to get to the spot where the foundation had been laid for the walls.  We gathered on the site, and Ton Ton, the job foreman, introduced the beneficiary family members.  It is a tiny woman with 7 children.  The girls were all introduced as "Cheri"... and their name.  Mason told us this means Sweetie, or Missy.  Then Ton Ton, aka Bob, prayed.

Haiti GO Team Feb 2016 in PDX

Glenwood’s outreach strategy is to be involved in sending those called to serve on a long term basis, to assist the development of national missionaries and leaders and to send short term Global Outreach (GO) Teams to these areas. Glenwood has been involved in Haiti for many years and is eager to support ministry in any number of ways.  A team of ten went to Port-au-Prince in February 2016 to minister in a number of ways.  See the teams updates below:

Haiti G.O. Team 2016 Day 1

February 7, 2016

We attended church this morning at the Baptist church at the bottom of the -very- long, steep hill, just outside the gate to the campus.  Brave souls walked, some of us rode down.  The service was at 8:30, and people were milling about, having just gotten out of Sunday School.  A familiar song was being piped out of the church into the portico.  The church building is large, with several levels.  The acoustics were very good, and the acapella singing of the congregation was A-MAZ-ING!  What a tear-inducing blessing.  They sang several hymns we knew, so we sang along in English.
