In January when we asked the children, "What is your dream?", most responded with traditional jobs like "block layer," "translator," "nurse" . . . and as I looked at their responses, it was easy to envision how they could grow up to be these things.
When I saw Kiki's card, however, I knew that it would have to be a God thing.
Today, however, Kiki had his first experience toward fulfilling his dream. He had the opportunity to be the "co-pilot" on a Mission Aviation Fellowship flight.
The very fact that this little 6 year old with big dreams was up in an airplane today, able to see the amazing beauty of his country, confirms for us at Haiti Awake that God has BIG plans for our Kiki . . . and that Jesus will complete the work He has started in Kiki's life (Phil. 1:6).... as He will for all of the children in our care.
To all the children, we say, "Dream big!'
Oh, and we did realize today that Kiki's not quite ready for flight school. Nap time called during the flight, and even though he was so excited to be flying . . . he couldn't fight off the need for some zzzz's.
Thank you MAF Haiti for making a little boy's dream become reality.
