The team from Celebrate Church in Knoxville, Iowa have been caught up in sloppy buckets of concrete and dusty serpentine roads. But they have not moved so fast that the small moments were pushed aside to be forgotten. Small moments. Important moments. Transformative moments.

Hello all! Today’s blog (day 2) is brought to you by Ross Iddings and Robert Woodle. Today our group split up into two smaller groups; one which mixed and poured concrete floors, and the other which handed food and supplies out to 7 different Christian households.
The concrete team poured the floor of Odenes’ house, a member of Many Hands Agronomy team. We worked together with a group of Haitians to mix, bucket in, pour and finish the concrete. The work was messy but it ended with a fingernail-painting-turned-street-dance party extravaganza.
Our daily prayers are as followed:
Ross: “Lord thank you for the day and the friends we met and experiences we shared. Bless the families we delivered food to and the household we poured concrete for. We give thanks for all that you have given us and pray for safety going forward on our journey. In Jesus name, Amen.”
Robert: “Dear Lord, thank you for this amazing opportunity to change lives and to experience personal transformation through encounters with our brothers and sisters. Let our hearts be opened to the nuance of this Haitian Culture and act like a sponge-soaking up and expelling blessings everywhere we’re led to go. Be with us now and forever, Amen.”
Have a great day! (I know we will!)
