So, I'm home.  Again.  

But this time it's different.  I came home full, not empty, thanks to the incredible team from The Bridge Church which came to Haiti Awake to minister alongside of us for over a week.

Thank you, Bridge family, for loving the people we love and working together to honor the Lord as you honored the people He created in His image.  

You exemplified what a short-term missions team should look like.

In fact, the aim of the gospel is the creation of people who are passionate for doing good rather than settling for the passionless avoidance of evil.

[Christ] gave himself for us . . . to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works (Titus 2:14).

The gospel produces people who are created for good works (Eph. 2:10), and have a reputation for good works (1 Tim. 5:10), and are rich in good works (1 Tim. 6:18), and present a model of good works (Titus 2:7), and devote themselves to good works (Titus 3:8, 14), and stir each other up to good works (Heb. 10:24).

And when they set about them, the word they hear from God is, Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord (Rom. 12:11).

— John Piper in Bloodlines
And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works.
— Hebrews 10:24
