Haiti Thoughts & Thank Yous

What an amazing time of ministry in the country of Haiti! Even as I look through some of the pictures, I am overwhelmed by the awesome way that God touched the lives of Haitians and our team. I am flooded with memories with Sampson, Fritz, Peterson, Doug, Wiljean, Kevynson, Tiroro, Lionel, Antonio, Ickney, Junior, Madame Wiljean's cooking, water, heat, love, compassion, poverty and hope.

My life will never be the same. The people that I saw in Haiti and the way that they interact with each other and with us showed their ability to love out of brokenness and to serve out of brokenness. What turned out to be so cool, was our teams' ability to learn to serve out of brokenness and to discover that we can be all God wants us to be when we turn our focus off of ourselves and what we get out of the trip and let our hearts break for what breaks God's.

Our team experienced huge breakthroughs in so many different ways and it was only possible because of your prayers and constant lifting to the Lord. Your persistence and participation in the Body of Christ was invaluable for our trip. So, from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for all your prayers and words of encouragement to our team. We have been truly blessed.

I am not, but He Is. He has changed our lives and has impacted the lives of so many Haitians. Again, like so many other times, He gets the Glory. He has done wondrous things and continues to push us outside of our comfort zones so that we can passionately hold on to Him in every season. He is our Rock and the only thing that holds us up. We praise His name because He is Good.

Thanks for everything that you, the Body, have done to support us in this journey! We wouldn't have been able to do it without you!

Because He Lives in All of Us,
Geoff & The IMPACT:Haiti Team
