This week, we are sharing from the Seacoast Church blog of their trip to Haiti!
Three Languages, One Love…
Praise God! We’re finally on our blog in English…after a few stops in Haitian Creole and Chinese! (We couldn’t find sign language!) What a wonderful experience we had this morning as South Carolinians, deaf Haitians and Creole Haitians worshipping in church together.
Pastor William mesmerized us with his rendition of “I will sing of your love forever” in sign, while simultaneously Creole words enveloped our ears. It is amazing how we speak three different languages and still understand each other completely through God’s love. The experience continued in a small group in our new friend Mackenson’s home, where we read our life verses. Tears of joy were shed by the speakers and the audience. Our hearts were captured by the interpretation of the creation in sign language.
We cemented our friendships with our sisters in Haiti by teaching them jewelry making in hopes of having their own small business. The joy and pride on their faces as they created beautiful beads was priceless! It won’t just be a moment in time for this team, but an afternoon that will live on in our memory and hearts forever.
