Haiti – Day 7

Posted: March 28, 2010 by Michele in church, Engineering Ministries International, project trips

Church:

We attended a baptismal for 23 candidates at the creek this morning. It was our highlight of the week so far. To see the whole congregation walk ½ hour up the road to the creek, singing all the way, perform the baptisms and then head back. It was really a time of rejoicing for the church. They even brought with them the pieces of tin to block the creek so it was deep enough to dunk.

Then we attended the regular service of 200 people under some big trees. The singing was great and the even though we didn’t understand the sermon, we were blessed by it. The kids sat amazingly still for the 2.5 hours in the service. We were the ones that were wriggling the most.
