The Alaska Nursing team had a successful day of traveling and settling in! I have no complaints about this view. It was even better getting to enjoy it with my awesome team and our incredibly gracious hosts. We’re looking forward to getting started with orientation at the clinic tomorrow!
Today, we began filling part of the foundation for a hospital being built in the city of Les Cayes and played with joyful little boys at the orphanage called Ducis.
Seeing God in everything means you have to be looking. Here we are as a Cedarville University missions team in a beautiful, heartbreaking country. We we drive by waving children, interact with locals, fill buckets with dirt, hold and play with Haitian children, and reapply sunscreen & bug spray every 30 minutes. In all of it I am reminded that just like God is in us and with us, God is in Haiti and with Haiti.
I looked and saw God here and it’s only day one. Day two, I’m excited for you. #CUGO
Some of our teams are in the air or already on the ground! South Asia team and the Austria team have arrived and will be starting ministry soon. The Haiti team left early this morning from Cincinnati. Togo team is on the ground. Marshall Pickering has started his ministry in Honduras. Can’t wait to hear how they’re doing!
We’ll keep you informed as we get updates. #CUGO
Take. Me. Back.
It has been hard being back after the incredible week spent in Guatemala! However, it has been amazing to see how God has worked in the lives of the team! My prayer is that while the memories of this incredible trip might slowly start fading, what God has taught each one of us will never fade away! #CUGO
Here’s the ladies of the Peru team sporting GO shirts. Not a bad background!
Thank you for your prayers and financial support! All of our teams are back safe and sound. Watch for stories from our spring break teams as well as our local ministry teams on instagram and twitter (@cedarvilleGO) throughout the rest of the semester. We will be blogging about our summer teams starting in May! #CUGO
All of our teams are heading back today and tomorrow. Here’s some pictures from the OPE Peru team working at a children’s festival with a local church. #CUGO
Here’s Alayna Sanderson and Madison Bender at King’s College going through soularium (a conversational tool) and later the gospel with two ladies one of whom was a Sikh. We had spiritual conversations with people from at least 8 different nations yesterday.
Hello from the Dearborn, Michigan team! We arrived at SEND’s hostel on Saturday and have been preparing for the week. We will tour Dearborn on Monday with SEND’s director, Tom, and start our ministry to the community! #CUGO
Today we had the opportunity to attend Calvary Chapel in Antigua, a missionary church. We got to experience a new culture and see what praising God was like in a new language! We also had the opportunity to play games and talk to missionaries and hear their stories. We are so encouraged by everything that has happened thus far and are excited to see what God is going to do through us this week. Tomorrow we get to tour AMG Guatemala headquarters and then head to the camp that we will spend our week at investing in the lives of the kids that are coming. Please be in prayer for our team as we begin to make relationships with the kids, and for language differences to not be a barrier. We cannot wait to update on Friday to share what God did throughout the week. #CUGO
Our trip started out stressful as Kim had some challenges with her ticket and ultimately had to join the team the following day after the team arrived.
It was a very stressful time for her especially because she was unable to communicate with us in Eleuthera. God is good, however and protected her. She arrived in time for Fair Day for Windermere School.
Today, Sunday, was very productive. Following a sermon at a local church over the meaning of Lent, we were able to give the cafeteria of Windermere a facelift. We worked as a team to clean and paint the facility. So far our experience has been very rewarding. God is faithful and answered our prayers for Kim and has given us the opportunity to show His love to others in a practical way. #CUGO
