-haitians.asians.koreans.americans all in airport. beautiful to see nations coming together.
-PAP. LaColeen.Gressier.
-craziness still.people everywhere.
-Gressier neighborhood: Ricardo and family. Jefferson. BayBay and family. Wimpsey.

-Pastor Benito needs a house. leaving in tent now. has 3 kids.
-teachers at the school really seem to connect with misty and the other counselors.
-kids @ school, most are slaves.
-its quiet in here (airport) but, right across the door is instant chaos. instant.
-seeing older people here serving is very encouraging.

im so thankful for this trip. now, going home but really wanting to stay. i could stay. God is in control. COMPLETE.
be patient. patient.
Thankful for the blessing-protection,grace. Jesus is real in every way. I proclaim Him.
Hes might to save. Hes comfort-Hes protection. - Hes Bigger. Hes better. His images are beautiful.
random people that He puts together always works. I love that about HIM. meeting new people is refreshing. He protects my heart. my emotions. Hes gentle. He uses HIs children. He gives rest. He gives strength. He gives joy. He is rest. He is strength. He is JOY.

Mexico was on my mind all week as well. oh to be in 2 places at the same time.
Father, I love YOUR creation.
