Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

Isaiah 26:3

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth inThee.

My daughter, Becky, sent these pictures and this request this morning. I am asking others to pray for her and her family and those in Haiti and the teams who are ther now as well.

We are on day 4 of torrential rains here in Haiti. We had a team here since Friday and they actually returned to Cayes yesterday cause they couldn’t do anything out at their sister church. Everything was wet, the kitchen was soaked and the church ladies cooking their meals were soaked thru. Here are a few pics from their drive home yesterday. The first pic is them driving over a bridge over a river.

That was 24 hours ago, the road must be covered now. The 3rd pic is the paved road they were driving on to get back to Cayes. I have never seen rain like this. Yes, we’ve had 8 days in a row before of rain, but not the constant torrential rains. It doesn’t let up for hours at a time!

We are safe and dry. There are 5 spots where water is getting into our house (4 roof leaks and one where it is seeping thru the walls) but it’s not that bad. Most people have holes in their roofs, so I am not complaining!

Please be praying! Becky

Father God ~

Please watch over all those in Haiti this day and this week as these rains come down. May we be reminded with every drop of RAIN that you are showering down GRACE UPON GRACE UPON GRACE! Protect and provide all that is needed and turn these rains into showers of blessing! In JESUS Precious Name we ask it, AMEN!
JOY, Stephanie

Update from Becky on October 12th

"Rain stopped, finally, yesterday afternoon. We have sunny skies today! Rob is out all day helping another missionary family about 45 minutes from here. They are building a sports camp and orphanage. Their property is right on the ocean and a river that dumps into the ocean runs right next to the property. The stone wall along that river collapsed and their whole property was under waist-high water. All their trucks, they has 3 shipping containers full of supplies, etc. Rob is out helping them clean up today. Our team went back to their Sister church to work on building a home. So glad the rain stopped!"

Praising GOD for His faithfulness and Thanks for all your prayers!

in JOY, Stephanie

Good to see your comment here that the rain has stopped. The verse from Isaiah is one I referenced in a video clip here:

I'm so glad I came by Stephanie, just in time to see the prayer needs and already some of the answers. I will be praying for all of them in Haiti. I know your heart is there too!
