Day 6 @ The Haiti Missions Trip


10/16/2014 by Mark Lydecker

What a final and fast passed work day we had here in Haiti!  First, we started the day by forming a chain gang line to load 600 large bags of food onto a truck. Each bag was filled with enough rice, beans, and oil to feed a small family for up to three weeks.  

After loading the truck we traveled the really bumpy/rocky road to the church...

Day 5 @ The Haiti Missions Trip


10/15/2014 by Mark Lydecker

Today started out with the loss of two team members from the first project of the day as they were not feeling well. We began the morning by filling up 600 bags of food with rice and beans.  These will be handed out on Thursday to the Onaville residents through the Onaville church.  Most of use have never done mass food distribution so we...

Day 4 @ The Haiti Missions Trip


10/14/2014 by Mark Lydecker

Yesterday was hot here in Haiti but today....was hotter!!  It makes it really had to work as we must keep hydrated and keep our hands away from our face so we don't get hit with digestive bacterial problems.  Unfortunately three people in the group did and they are waiting for it to pass before they can assist the work again.

Day 3 @ The Haiti Missions Trip


10/13/2014 by Mark Lydecker

After having a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, fruit and mango we trekked out to our worksite this morning.  The bus runs really good but it doesn't seem to have shocks so the ride up the side of a mountain on a stone road is always rough.

After arriving in Onaville we split up in small groups and did some prayer walking.  All the ...

Day 2 @ the Haiti Missions Trip


10/12/2014 by Mark Lydecker

It was a blessings to be able to sing "How Great Thou Art" today with a fairly new church here in Haiti.   The congregation sang in Creole while we sang in English....and wow could they sing!  The speaker of the morning was from Texas and was interpreted into Creole.   The service lasted 2 hours.

Following the ...

Day 1 @ The Haiti Missions Trip


10/11/2014 by Mark Lydecker

Our team of 20 left from JFK at 6 AM and arrived in Haiti by 11. Takeoff, flight, and landing were a little bumpy but uneventful....which is the way one likes it.

We were met in Haiti by some expected but humid conditions. It was not as hot as we anticipated but the sun is pretty intense.

As we drove from the airport to our host lodging...

What is Going On in the World?


8/17/2014 by Ed Kirkland

It is hard for me to find common ground with those who deny evil exists.  I could say the same for any who believe the human race is evolving to be more than we have been.  For me, the evidence is so strongly stacked against both arguments they are rendered moot.
 
You do not need to spend years in a Seminary studying theology to ...

Ten Years Today


8/3/2014 by Ed Kirkland

It is hard to believe that ten years have come and gone since my first Sunday as Senior Pastor of Wantagh Baptist Church.  Donna and I knew that God wanted us to come to New York to be a part of what He was going to do.  Our call to come was crystal clear.  Yet, it was birthed through years of prayer, pain, and searching to know His ...

STEREOTYPES BROKEN


7/19/2014 by Steve Kinsel

Friday was our last day on the work sites- so today was like cramming for finals......you realize the end is near so you "hyper-focus" to finish the job before leaving.  Every team strapped on their "big boy boots" today and worked so diligently to push towards the end.

The progress was so cool to see from Monday until ...

2 Updates in ONE Day??


7/18/2014 by Steve Kinsel

I have decided that you are just going to need to come to our missions report night on 7/30 to hear the stories because there is so much I could try to write here it would take forever.  The end, good night. (Haha).

No no, I won't tease you that much, but I am serious that it would take forever to write about everything that happened. &...

How is it Thurs. morning already?


7/17/2014 by Steve Kinsel

This trip seems to be flying by (which is a good thing b/c it sure beats the other way when you're thinking, "it's ONLY Thurs"....

It was supposed to rain most of the day yesterday (Wednesday) which would have impacted several of our sites (esp. at one of the sites which was pouring concrete in the AM).  While it was cloudy ...

WOW!!! (yes, it's as simple as that).....

Where do I begin about Tuesday.  There is so much I could write about, but there is NO way to explain everything that happened.  You will just have to come to our missions report night (July 30th by the way- shameless plug Lol) to hear more about it.  But first off, the weather continues to be amazing. 

Today there were a lot ...

A tale of 2 reservations


7/14/2014 by Steve Kinsel

For those following this, you know we had a LONGGGGG day yesterday, arriving late last night.

Today we headed out to our work-sites to see what we would be working on all week.  First off, this trip is about as different as you can get from last year.  Last year in the Rockaway's was fairly urban, this year we're about as rural ...
