I had the privilege of going out with Christ Community Church, Ocala, FL on their very first visit with their new Sister Church in Fond Deron, Haiti. Fond Deron is located about 3 hours north of where we live, up in the mountains. We had a blast worshipping, encouraging and loving one another.
Something very unique, very special happened. It was truly amazing to watch as 2 churches came together and formed 1 family. It was a beautiful union. God has got to be smiling!
From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, it was special. Even though we got held up for 3 hours or so due to road construction and therefore arrived late (after dark) the Fond Deron church had a welcome party. We danced into the village lighted by only our trucks. The Haitians were singing, dancing and marching. The team members from Christ Community had no idea what they were singing, but it didn’t matter. It was obvious that the Haitian church loved their presence! The ministry of presence speaks volumes.
Lives were changed, hearts were encouraged, perspectives were modified and God was glorified. It was a good trip.
