We have just received communication by email from the Team in Haiti and the report is ABUNDANTLY BLESSED!
JoEllen and Bill Smith and Tara Judd are currently on a “vision trip” to Haiti meeting with varied local mission agencies in an effort to help strategically guide River Oaks to a “Haiti Partner”. This is a critical step in ROCC being able to ramp up its activity in Haiti and we are thrilled to have such a wonderful mid visit report. Below are some excerpts from their note;
JoEllen writes “Tara and I have been busy visiting 2 orphanages, 2 shcools, and 3 churches since arriving on Saturday (all partners with EFCA).” ALL OF THIS IN ONLY 3-1/2 DAYS!!!
When speaking about the host agencies they are interacting with, the team reports “… they have been the perfect host!” THE EXCLAMATION POINT COMES FROM THEIR EMAIL TEXT
The team further notes that they are keeping an open mind for the remainder of the week, but gives indication they are starting to visualize opportunities for a return visit and kick off of a first traditional mission trip in late first quarter of next year.
Please continue to pray for the team, their travel and safety, and that God will show them what He wants River Oaks to see so that we may find the partner He wishes us to join hands with.
… more to come as it is available.
