This mornings service was awesome. It gave us just a teeny glimpse of what Heaven is going to be like.
After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands. Revelation 7:9
What a beautiful picture! That will be one glorious day, being in heaven and worshiping Jesus with people from every nation and tribe and people and language.
After church we took a tour through the village of Gramothe where the church and school are. We went through peoples homes, saw some old voodoo temples, and got to see what life is like for them. They are so joyful and appreciative, that blows me away.
We got to visit the orphanage where the Lance's and Schumacher (friends from dubuque) families are adopting. We got the chance to snuggle with and love on their soon to be kids, it was so hard to leave them there. They probably don't get barely any love, and I'm complaining about missing Lillie, Titus and Toby. We complain so much.
Prayer requests: God's power to keep breaking our hearts, we'd see as many patients as possible tomorrow, and God's will.
PS. If those of you who don't have facebook want to see more pictures, here's the link to my album: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150382088508000.406002.749417999&l=b8bf8d5489&type=1
