“Chains fall. Fear bow. Here now, Jesus You change everything. Lives healed. Hope found. Here now, Jesus You change everything.” These words were cried out to the Father among the congregation this morning. As I stood and worshipped alongside hundreds of others, these words were presented to Jesus in so many different ways. For some, it was a desperate cry for those words to be true for themselves. For others, it was their celebration anthem of who they are in Christ and what He has done for them. And then for some of us this morning….it was a battle cry for the hearts and souls of others.
It is the heart of Foundation Haiti Project to see lives changed. We know this can only be done through Jesus, and so we pray and we listen and we follow His leading. We follow him into territory that is new and uncharted and “risky.” We follow him into areas that require faith because we can’t see what is ahead. However; something that God is reminding me and continuing to teach me is that even when I don’t see….He sees. He knows. And what he sees and knows and has planned is for the good of those who love Him.
Last fall, we announced that we will building a children’s home, Cowboy’s Castle, in Ornaville, Haiti. In the next few weeks, Kensly (Foundation Haiti Project’s President), will travel to Haiti to secure the final details on the land to have it ready for ground-breaking. If you would have told me ten years ago, I would be walking alongside a team of people who love God, love Haiti, and love nearly 50 children who, at this time, do not have a consistent home, I don’t know if I would have believed you. If you would have told me that I would be among a team of people who agreed in faith to answer a call to build these children a home, I probably would have said you were crazy. I did not see it. However, ten years ago, God saw it.
What does God see that you do not see yet? If you don’t see it yet, then you may not be able to answer that question. However, you can answer this one….Are you willing to step out in faith even when you cannot see, trusting that God sees; trusting that it’s for your good; and for the good of others?
After we sang, we read Titus 3. The subtitle of the text read “Saved In Order To Do Good.” Since Jesus changed everything for you, what good are you doing? If you are looking for a place to express this change, we invite you to join us in the prayer, preparation, and provision of Cowboy’s Castle.

“…so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good.” Titus 3:8
Until Next Time….Bondye Beni-w!
