This verse from Proverbs most accurately sums up the 34 days recently spent in Haiti:
"A man's heart plans his way, but the LORD determines his steps." (Proverbs 16:9)
God determined each step. Even though our ministry team had planned out the three teams and all of their activities, God had other plans day-by-day. We visited places we did not plan to visit. We were unable to work with ministries we had planned to partner with. And . . . We made new friends and made lasting memories.
In the end, it was clear: Each of the three summer teams was put together by God with each member having special talents and abilities that complimented the group and allowed the group, as a whole, to learn more, experience more, be more effective in sharing the Gospel through daily living
