On another exciting note, Feb 22nd & 23rd found the White House a beehive of activity with Haiti Healthcare Advocates board members (www.haitihealthcareadvocates.com) arriving from Washington, Michigan, Indiana, Texas & Saskatchewan. We enjoyed participating in a productive two days of shared reports, discussions, motions and decisions that were aimed & motivated to move Claire Heureuse Hospital forward. It was an excellent time for us to acquaint ourselves with this dedicated group of Christian volunteers, and to be reminded of the common purpose and reason we all serve in Dessalines by supporting the hospital in their efforts "to evangelize, to teach and to heal".
Relationship is all about building bridges! We are not designed to be islands but to be united together through Chist, sharing in each others lives. Philippians 2:1-4 tells us, "Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others."
This week has been a great encouragement to our hearts as we have witnessed God's word in action through His people!
