UPDATED from the team:
After morning church service at the amphitheater church, we rode through the crowded streets / markets handing out hundreds of tracts and Bibles. There were hundreds, even thousands of people. We had a speaker system; played music and shared the gospel message. Stopped at a market to share; John Wallace was able to get out of truck with a translator and pray with an individual amongst the crowd of people as the gospel was being shared. There was one heckler trying to distract John’s opportunity, but someone in the crowd actually stopped the person from interrupting him. We went through some rough areas of the city and were met with some abrasive responses, but overall favorable. Incredible translator while we evangelized in the streets! He was loud and exuberant and connected with the people.
Then we made our way to the top of a tall mountain to pray over the city.
The rest of the day we had a sweet time of fellowship and worship amongst the team.
-First day of VBS is tomorrow at the amphitheater church at Cross to Light.
-In the afternoon, we will head to a voodoo village to repeat the VBS. Pray for ground and hearts to be broken.
-Pray for all the support we have, and need: cooks, translators, security team. -Bible Training Center teachings begin tomorrow (with Pastor John.)
Sunday began with church in the amphitheater located on the hill outside of Cross to Light.
Jim gave the message...
Following church, the team left for "a crazy epic adventure" as one team member called it!
Armed with hundreds of tracts, the team climbed aboard a mobile pulpit! Take a look at this video to get a look at the truck they rode around Port-Au-Prince in!
The massive sound system blasted worship music and preaching as they drove through the downtown market sharing and handing out tracts. It was an unbelievable experience!
Turn your head sideways for this one!
After ministering in the market place, the team headed up the mountain for a breathtaking view of Haiti. There they interceded for the nation that so desperately needs the saving message of the Gospel.
On the way back they had 2 more new experiences in Haiti:
lunch at a downtown pizza parlor
and literally getting stuck between a rock and a hard place! They had to physically move the more common mode of transportation in Port-Au-Prince...a broken Tap Tap...our of the road so they could return to the training center.
Please continue to pray for the prayer requests listed yesterday! As the team contacts us with more information and prayer requests they will be posted as soon as possible!
