Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit

Amazing is all I can say. My brain was ready to explode from all the information. We went from 9 in the morning until 10 at night…..

 

I don’t want to preach a lot about things that I am not that educated about, but what I do want to say is that we should all be paying close attention to our surroundings. We need to be aware of the changes that are taking place, and see them for what they are, biblically. One speaker was very open about all of the “seeker friendly” Churches that only want to talk and sing about the happy parts of the bible, and not the truth about what is to come.

Paul McGuire said it best when he said that “We alter our conversations so we are not perceived as extremists. We are giving into peer pressure, surviving the social jungle.”

I understand that there are several people that will read this and say, “what a quack” . I feel really strongly that we are in end times right now, and we need to be prepared for what is coming. We need to prepare our children. We are told to “occupy until I come” We can do this through prayer, we need to seek God, and evangelize to the lost.

Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit 

Jeremiah, Sherry, and I will depart from MSP on Thursday to travel to Colorado for the prophecy summit.  I am so excited to be able to share with you what we learn.  With speakers like Chuck Missler, L.A. Marzulli, Jonathan Cahn, it is bound to be a phenomenal experience.  


There will be live streaming of the confrence available if you would like to attend, but not able to travel to Colorado.  The video of the confrence will be available for 30 days after the confrence.  Please visit: http://www.prophecyinthenews.com/the-pikes-peak-prophecy-summit/  If you are interested.  


We are very blessed to have such great family friends that will be caring for our children while we are away, giving us this opportunity to go.  Here is a shout out to the Allebach family and the Olson family for your help this coming week.  It is greatly appreciated.  


I would also like to thank you all for spreading the word on our foundation, and following the blog.  We have great big visions for what is to come from this, and we know without all of you it would not be possible.  We are grateful for your prayers that this foundation can and will be a success, helping those in need that may not have the resources to help themselves.  


God Bless~

How can we help?

“The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die from preventable diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children. And though at first glance that looks like a big number, 2.1 billion people on this earth proclaim to be Christians. The truth is that if only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there would not be any statistics left.” 

― Katie J. DavisKisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption

Now, read that one more time.  


And again.  


When I read the book mentioned above, that statement smacked me in the face, and then it smacked me from the other side.  8%.  What is 8%?  



That is all I wanted to say today.  I hope that the statistic above talks to your heart like it did mine.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or ideas that you may have.  Prayers that you need, or requests that you have.

Sponsorship 

Meet my kids.  Well, not really, but I would like to think of them as such.  Dieuvenet Aliotte on the left and his sister Sencia Aliotte on the right.  These are two kids from the village of La Digue that are part of the feeding program through Children’s Lifeline.  Lifeline feeds over 8000 children a day.  Jeremiah and I, our whole family really sponser these 2 children with 20 dollars per child per month.  20 dollars feeds these kids one meal a day for an entire month.   

Lifeline made sure that the kids got up to the compound so that I could meet them.  We brought them a few things to play with and a waterproof bible.  They do not see white people very often, so as you can imagine my Minnesota white was a little odd to them.  

There mother came with them, and I was able to talk with all three of them with the help of Mark, a very talented young translator…  

If you are interested in helping feed a child in Haiti through a sponsorship, please visit childrenslifeline.com and sign up.  When put into prespective it is less than a cup of coffee or bottle of soda per day.  

The Kids and their Mom….  

Playing with their new toys …..  

HOME AGAIN 

We made it.  After complete and total chaos in Miami at the airport and mix matched luggage, we are home.  Our hearts heavy with everything that we left behind, but very elated to see our families.  

I want to thank every one of you that has been keeping up with the blog, and all of you that have helped to make this trip a memorable one.  I have lots of photos of the children getting their stuffed animals.  The Aflac ducks that I was more than happy to see out of my toddlers hands were the biggest hits of all.  

A good friend and neighbor brought over several pairs of shoes before I left.  One pair in particular was given to my favorite Madame Baguette…also known as The Kissing Bandit.  She is part of the widows group that meets on Tuesdays mornings..  She kissed both of my cheeks and sat next to me during the prayers and praises holding my leg.  She is over 90 years old and hikes to the mission and up the hill every Tuesday.  After the songs and prayers they are given food for the week.  

Wednesday was Hannahs 17th birthday, so we celebrated right.  The only way to do this while on a missions trip in Haiti is by celebrating right away in the morning, before you get out in the field to work for th day…  Pam, these next photos are just for you…..   

BREAKFAST DONE RIGHT….  🙂 

On the 4th of July, we had a moment in the morning where we remembered the independance of our country.  Then we made the trip to Real Hope For Haiti,  we forgot about all of the fireworks and barbeques we were missing at home as soon as we headed up the mountain.  Please remember to keep the burn victims from the rescue center in your prayers, along with the severly malnurished children that are being cared for.  Also, remember Lori and Licia and help them with their cause.  Praying for them and giving praise for the work they are doing .  http://www.realhopeforhaiti.org if you so feel led to financially help, they have a paypal link on their blog.  Once our website is fully functional and our 5013(c) status is complete we will also have the ability to take donations.  I am hoping that we can partner with other organizations, like Real Hope for Haiti.  

23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. 24 You guide me with your counsel,and afterward you will take me into glory. 25 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:23-26 

Happy 4th of July 

I know that by the time you read this, independance day will have come and gone.  I read this morning a lot of posts on facebook about the fun times had, barbecues and fireworks.  It really is something to be able to celebrate our independance.  A lot of the 42 people here at Lifeline this week wore red/white/blue to honor our country.  

If you can believe it, we had fireworks here in Haiti also.  Not the kind that shoot up into the sky and make loud booms and spectacular views, but the kind that get set off in your heart.  Yesterday we were introduced to two very incredible, inspirational women.  These women run the Real Hope for Haiti clinic/ rescue center.  They are so filled with the spirit of Christ that they are witness to true miracles EVERY SINGLE DAY.  They take care of incredibly malnurished children in their rescue center.  We were told of how they were down to their last few single serve sample sized formula packets, enough for one day.  They lifted their concerns for these babies to The Lord, and by the end of the day and ENTIRE TRUCK LOAD of formula arrived at the center.  Goosebumps are rising again just typing this.  Another story of how the stock room was out of antibiotics.  Fever was high and the need to treat infection was rising.  Prayers were sent up over and over again from the supply room.  After one prayer, eyes were opened, and you want to know what was just sitting on the shelf?  If you guessed antibiotics you would be correct. Miracle after miracle.  

I told you yesterday of the 6 children that were so severly burned last Friday.  While we were touring the clinic we were brought into the room that one of the children was going through her daily cleaning and dressing change.  She was screaming…and screaming…..and screaming.   We were told that she was on morphine and methadone for pain, but it was obvious that it was not enough.  They do not have any doctors on staff, or anestesiologists, just one RN, so they can not sedate their patients.  The little girl was around 7, and her grandmother was holding her hand that was not burned and had her head laying on the child trying to stay strong for her.  All I could see and hear was one of my children laying there in such agony and I had to leave the room.  The tears just flowed and flowed for this child.  

We moved next to their version of an NICU.  I know that several of you have an idea of what our NICU’s look like and sound like.  Here there are no isolettes, there are no moniters.  There are no hourly temp checks.  There is no scrub in station and there is no hand sanitizer.  Just incredibly ill children.  I was holding one 4lb baby boy.   He slept peacefully, or I hope it was peacefully.  I did not unwrap him to see if he had distressed breathing or not.  There were a couple that were very very bloated and swollen.  

We were told that this was the worst of the malnurished.  The very skinny ones were actually in better condition.  The swelling on these children was caused by organ failure, brought on by malnutrition.  I was able to comfort one child with prayer and humming but do not know how long she would sleep.  Another child, 22 months old, was totally blind.  He was brought in with a vitamin A deficiency.  The result was the loss of a cornea in the one eye and near loss in the other eye.  Some of the children were frightened by our very white skin, but this little boy held on to me so tight, he couldn’t see that I was white.  

I was hoping to be able to upload some photos today from the beach, but unfortunatley the suitcase with my cords was left behind at one of the orphanages.  We used the suitcase to bring toys to the kids and forgot one, the one that had the cords..  So hopefully I will figure out a way to transfer them to my iPad when i get home.  

Please, please keep the burn victims in your prayers.  That rescue center is no stranger to miracles, and we all know that our God is a loving God that has the ability to help these children.

Just have a quick minute to ask for some urgent prayer requests.  We just returned from Real Hope for Haiti. 

On Friday night there was a house fire and six children were severely burned.  They lived up in the mountain and it took adults 5.5 hours to get the children down to the center.  They were in shock and in very bad shape.  One of the children died the next day, five are still being treated.  I will tell more when I have more time but for now, please pray for

Mirlande age 15 

Gerlie age 10

Brothers Chelot and Giechenet age unknown

Wisely age unknown 

Gerlie’s sister Chrislyn is the one who passed and their mother was also burned but not as severely.  

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Hannah Elizabeth Allebach!  Today we celebrated Hannah’s 17th birthday..  In Haiti.  And we did it right.  I will fill you in on the hilarity of the entire surprise in another post, because that in itself is an entire story.  We had a breakfast of champions with chocolate cake and presents.  She even had a yummy gift from home.  

Ok, the green was for Hannah, her favorite color.  One of the amazing things about today, is Hannah’s truly selfless act, of giving her special day to The Lord by spreading His word here in Haiti.  She passed up the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends, the opportunity to see Despicable Me 2, all to give to others.  

Yesterday, Donald  Curtis and his family arrived in Haiti.  Donald is the one that runs Lifeline out of Kentucky.  What a great man.  He went with us today to visit 2 orphanages and the market.  He was able to give a guided tour of sorts during out drive time, it was really nice to hear a little more about the history of the mission.  The man that founded the mission was a photographer.  His pastor asked him to come with on a mission trip to take pictures to bring home and show people what devastation was in Haiti.  He really did not want to come.  He did end up traveling on that trip.  What he saw in Haiti on that first trip to Haiti changed his heart forever.  He started by feeding 12 children and has built a mission that now feeds 8000 kids a day.  

Tomorrow we will travel to Real Hope For Haiti.  This is where the extremely malnourished children go.  This may be the hardest visit of the week, so please keep us in your prayers.  These are very sick kids, so we will not be playing soccer with these children.  

Hannah reminded me of scripture in Luke chapter 18:18-30.  This story speaks about how hard it is for the rich man to give up his wealth to give to the poor.  If we are selfish human beings and do not choose to help those in need, we are not following our teachings.  You may not be able to give monetarily at all times but you can always give from your heart.   

How much do you love your Lord?

Children are innocent.  My children, your children, and the children of Haiti.  It is so easy for them to love what they have, or more often here what they don’t have, because as children you really don’t know any better.  The children we visit at the orphanages love us, they love to be hugged, they love to play patty cake and ring around the rosey.  They appreciate the smallest toy car or doll just as much as the new water filtration system.  One keeps their tummmies safe while the other helps them smile.  It doesn’t matter how big or small the gift, even if it is just a hug.  What would my children or your children say if on Christmas morning you only were able to offer them a hug?  

Today we visited two orphanages.  One gentleman, Gene, brought something called salvation dolls with him.  The dolls were hand made by a family friend.  They told the story of being in the dark without Jesus, and in the light with Jesus.  They taught about the power in the blood of Jesus.  They taught about sin, salvation, growth, and heaven.  There was a doll for each one of the children today, and they heard this story through one of the very gifted translators that the mission provides.  The teens (10 between both groups) played with the kids.  Soccer and tag and patty cake.  It was wonderful to bring these children a little bit of hope and to also take a lot of hope with us as we go.  The Lord works in such amazing ways.  We think we are helping these children but it really is the other way around.  He is working in our hearts also.  Maybe even more than we are for them.  

The hardest part of the day was at 8:30 this morning.  I knew it was going to be tough and had been praying and mentally preparing myself.  Tuesday mornings the widows and single moms and crippled men come to the mission.  They hike up to the top of the hill to meet with the pastor.  When it is time to leave they are all given a bag, or a box, filled with enough food to feed them for the week. Laura also put a back pack with a tooth brush and tooth paste in the bag  for them.  

So They sing songs of praise, and then Pastor asks them to talk about what The Lord has done for them this week. A group of about 45 people and they all start talking.  One lady was able to start her thanks out with song and continued her story to say that The Lord had healed her.  She had something wrong with her breast and was going to have to have it removed.  She was healed.  Praise The Lord.  Another lady who was also widowed, named Milleaina, also sang out praises.  She was praising The Lord for the gift of life.  She has no family, no one to take care of her, and no home to live in.  Yet she was provided for.  When she was hungry somehow she had food.  The story that hit me the hardest was that of a single mother. Her name was Allysion (sp).  Her daughters are in the 10-12 year old range and neither can walk.  She recently moved down from the mountains to the village next to La Digue.  The previous directors of Lifeline helped her out a lot with doctors and food and shelter.  She has  no husband, the father of her children not in the picture.  I sobbed through her entire story.  She is a pillar of strength for her girls.  Teaching them about Jesus and doing all she can for them through prayer.  My next mission will be to come home and do whatever I can to raise the money to build these two women houses.  I will forever have a special place in my heart for these very special women of the village of La Digue.  Madame Baguette got a new pair of shoes today and it was like she got a million dollars.  I have a picture I will post of that, because a very special neighbor brought that pair of shoes to me to bring to someone in need in Haiti. 

These women, these children, and their faith in our Lord.  The Lord that we all share, regardless if we have a zip code or not.  He is the same God.  The obvious differences lie in our possessions and our basic needs.  The differences that are not obvious at first sight are the differences in faith. Milleaina is thanking God each and every day for living.  She slept on the ground near the street last night but she woke up praising God for the gift of another day.  What is the first thing you do when you wake up?  Do you thank God for all of the things that we as Americans take for Granted?  Do you thank Him for your safe clean running water or your air conditioning in your vehicle?  How often to say Lord, I love you. ?  

We are blessed in the country that we live in, and there are good reasons why we have the things we do.  I am not sure how long this blessing from our Lord will last, so please do not take it for granted.  

The devotion today was from Psalms 1.  Acting like a christian and actually being a christian are two different things.  When you are a christian people will see you, they will see the blessings that you have, their hearts may open to Jesus, they will want what you have.
