On our second day in Haiti we got to do something new to most of us called a treasure hunt, which is a unique experience. We started the morning by spending time in prayer for specific things and characteristics of people to pray for. Only Pastor James, the missionary, knew anything about the area where we were going afterwards.
It seemed crazy how many strange and obscure characteristics we individually felt were present in that area and in the people of that area. It was also remarkable how many people came up with the same words when we compared notes. For example, some words a few of our team members felt were “fountain, statue, sister relationship, arched doorway, and Janet.” Yes, Janet. A name that is never heard of in Haiti.
