“But God doesn’t call us to be comfortable. He calls us to trust Him so completely that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations where we will be in trouble if He doesn’t come through.”
-Francis Chan, Crazy Love
Are we too comfortable? This a question that many of us have either asked or avoided asking ourselves. Either way, I believe we are afraid of the answer. To live a life so uncomfortably to a point where we are utterly dependent on God is hard! No matter what country you live in, God is asking us to step out in faith and TRUST Him!
Being a missionary in Haiti does not make this any easier – or harder. Similar to life elsewhere, ministry is full of highs and lows and we are striving to trust God throughout each. Trusting in God is a journey; it’s ongoing. This journey develops into a greater story of God’s power and provision in each of our lives. However, our personal stories are not given the opportunity to bless others if they continue to remain unpublished. We are called to share our stories as the body of Christ and we want to do this faithfully.
The story of an individual working for a mission organization is quickly lost amongst the greater story of the organization. Children of the Promise (COTP) is no exception. COTP has permeated the stories of not only Haitians but the international staff living here as well. The struggles we face in Haiti are no more important or difficult but rather different. Featuring posts from various COTP staff’s personal blogs and guest writers, we hope to paint a vivid picture of what it looks like to live & serve Christ in Haiti. I hope you will allow us to share with you our own stories of trusting in God!
