Haiti #3: Why it’s important 35 people had NO DRAMA for a week in a foreign country

One of the things that continues to stick out to me regarding our time in Haiti was the team that converged from several different parts of the United States. A few main themes:

1. It is amazing what happens when people aren’t judged.

Seriously, when you are simply accepted for who you are and don’t have the baggage of people judging you, your ability to serve the Lord is much greater. There is freedom in that. Imagine what life would be like if we all could serve and minister every time without the slightest thought of what others were thinking of us. That’s truly what this trip was like. WOW!

2. Over 20 women and one bathroom. And no arguments!

This meant a lot of early mornings and late nights rotating around the shower schedule. I really don’t mean any jokes by this comment, but it truly is incredible that not one argument surfaced considering the amount of time, the cramped quarters, and all the other dynamics of being in a foreign country.

3. The body of Christ is truly a supernatural thing.

You can’t explain the absence of drama in any other way. It’s answered prayer. It’s God moving through His people. It’s God protecting His church and allowing a group to thrive on a short term trip. Complete strangers (not to mention some from the Akron/Cleveland area and some from the Pittsburgh area) getting along and thriving on a common mission for the week, and God blessing us through it all? To me, it’s more than humans can do by themselves.
