I was sitting in my office today and the most beautiful singing started in our dining room. It was like a choir of angels!
It was my Haitian staff singing in wonderful harmony during their weekly Bible study with Pastor Brandon Jordan. Brandon and Nikki Jordan run our guesthouse.
I was sitting there listening to them sing and then they were laughing at something Pastor Brandon was saying and I could just hear joy in their voices! It makes me feel very humble to listen to them because they have risen above the suffering, grief, shock, anger, incredible loss, and fear that they have experienced since January of this year.
I sat there and wondered if I could have been that strong if the orphanage had fallen down, or one of my loved was hurt? I would like to think that I am that strong, but do any of us really know what we would do if put to the test? All I need to know is that God is always with me and I never have to go through anything alone.
My Haitian staff truly believes that only with God by their sides can they get through the daily trials in their life here in Haiti. The first thing many of them did when the earth shook that fateful day was start praying and then singing.
God is close to their hearts and He gave them a beautiful gift…the voices of ANGELS!
