Righteous Anger

We are safely on the ground in St. Marc. All went rather well. Although the team got to see some righteous anger out of their pastor and leader today. I was hoodwinked just a little at the airport this evening, and when I was done, there were blue shirts staring open mouthed. It reminded me of how furious God must get when we try our little stunts on Him, the difference is He is never hoodwinked! This is another story for another day though. We are in a hurry to get the team to the property and get bedded down for the night. Everyone is well, and we have actually been greeted with cool breezes tonight. We set up the new stove and the girls went to work, we fed the house, managed our luggage a bit, and now we settle in for the evening. Getting around this time promises to be a little more difficult as our main road to the church is torn up now, but we will endure this minor hardship realizing our inconvenience is but for eight days, and these people don't get a reprieve. Thanks for all the prayers, the plane engine not starting in Miami gave a start, but must have just been a small issue. The flight was smooth and we landed without a hiccup. Have a blessed night, we will blog again tomorrow! Blessings with thanksgiving from St. Marc

Hellooo Haiti Team!
I pray that you had a successful day and are doing well. I have been thinking of you and praying for you. So Krystle I have to tell you that I am reading a pirate book. I am sorry to say that I have not been a god reader since I have moved but I am determined to get back into it. (I have already read this book at least twice. Lol)
Now for the MOST IMPORTANT part of my message.....Allow me to let 9&10 say it for me..

“That colder air means lake effect showers. At first most locations will see rain showers but as the day goes on, with even colder air moving in, snow showers will take over for the afternoon. Lake effect snow showers then become the dominate type of precipitation. Some accumulation is likely for the higher elevations of Northern Michigan. If you live near the lakes, you'll see a mix of rain/snow showers with little if any accumulation”

In my words...Dear Doyle Berg. I don’t think we can be friends any longer. OR we have to be such good friends that you stay in Michigan all the time....When you are here it does not seem to snow as much. ( I will keep u posted as to if it ACUTALY snows or not......
I love you all and have been thinking of you often. You are in my prayers.
Love Shelbie.
Ps. Mr. Berg I am using spell-check on this by writing in on a word document first.....Hope you find it satisfactory... =)

Greetings Haitian Team,

You have been in our prayers all along, and now you are being the hands and feet of Jesus. Do Him Proud, for He delights in your obedience and your service. What a great God we serve King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Do I here an Amen. Truly we wish we were there with you, however that is in God's time.
As I was praying for you today Psalm 121 came to my heart so I am praying that for you today and throughout the trip.

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm— the will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Blessings to you and thanks for serving.
Love, The Reyhl's
