“May the God of hope…”
Romans 15:13 begins with a promise that our God is a God of hope, and that something else is coming. He’s going to do something, He’s going to work.
This week in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a group of 19 volunteers from Illinois waits in expectation that God will work. But their waiting isn’t passive; they won’t be killing time. Instead, they plan to build two houses and visit families on behalf of local churches.
They arrived Sunday morning at New Life Children’s Home, their home this week, wearing bright yellow T-shirts proclaiming Romans 15:13 in Haitian Creole. The team spent most of the day getting used to the Haitian heat and meeting the kids who live at New Life, which, in addition to the guest house, also operates an orphanage.
Check this blog throughout the week for more from the group, and how they’re living out Romans 15:13 here in Haiti.
