He Lights The Way
September 17, 2013
One of the things that Caitlin and I like to do after dinner is stand on the roof watching the sunset. We go up to the roof because it is quiet. We have just finished dinner and it is lighter on the roof as the sun sets and we wait for the power to come on, also there is always a nice cool breeze.
Last night Caitlin told me a story about the cross on the church across the street from the mission. I never knew that at night it is lit up by solar lights. It is a glowing reflection of God’s love to the people of the village here, but also to those outside of St. Louis. It lights the way… literally.
Many years ago there was a boat full of Haitians who were lost at sea when a storm hit- their boat capsized and they saw the cross on the church and the began to swim towards it and it got them safely back to shore.It is so cool to know that God lights the way in so many ways here in Haiti.
