Joy in Chateau

Happy Sunday dear friends!

I wanted to take a little break from my Biblical journey to talk about Laurence and Gilbert Pierre and their ministry.  Laurence and Gilbert are a wonderful Haitian couple who were led by the Holy Spirit to start a summer camp for children in Laurence’s home town of Chateau.  The Haitians are an amazing inspiration to me: they respond to grinding poverty, hurricanes, earthquakes, and a corrupt government with astonishing resilience and persistent inner peace and joy.  In our country we tend to respond to our overwhelming problems – like only getting one bar on our smartphone – by shaking our fists at God.  I encourage you to check out their web site:

God bless!
