Para nós a agenda mudou nestes últimos dias, mas estamos certos de que o Senhor está no controle de todas as coisas. Como diz o salmo, temos percebido o amor de Deus para com todas as suas criaturas e de uma forma especial para com o povo haitiano.
Não podemos fazer muita coisa, mas conversamos com líderes aqui e o alvo nesses dois dias será terminar a reconstrução da clínica, do orfanato e construir a casa da família Watso. Por favor, orem para que as chuvas cessem para darmos continuidade aos trabalhos.
Na quarta faremos a organização da casa e retornamos ao Brasil, conforme o previsto. Orem para que o Isaac não decida mudar de rumo e voltar para o Panamá!
Estamos bem e certos de estarmos no tempo e no lugar certo.
Um grande abraço a todos.

August 25th and 26th
For us the schedule changed in the last days, but we are sure that the Lord is in the control of all things. Like Psalm says, we have noticed the Lord´s love to all creatures and in a special way to Haitian people.
We left yesterday during the rain to help some institutions and people who were affected. This afternoon we went to an orphanage to fix some things. We have two more days of intensive work and a challenge: build a house that was destroyed by the hurricane.
The story we heard today impressed us: Watso is one of the Haitian workers that helped us in the orphanage rebuilding during the week. Today when we removed the wood protections that we had placed to sustain and protect the house, he was there to help us and told us that his house and his mother’s were affected by the Hurricane. His house lost its roof and part of the walls, he tried to fix it using the tiles of the hen house, since the 216 chicks that he was creating in company with another haitian died!
We saw the hen house with the roof half-destroyed, mother's house collapsed, and the wife of Watso inside what was left of the house of one room, reading the Bible to her two children. When she saw, welcomed us very smilingly and told: God bless you!
We cannot do much, but we talked with leaders here and these two days we will finish rebuilding the clinic, orphanage and build the Watso’s house. Please pray that the rains cease to give continuity to the work.
Tonight we attend the funeral service Maxo’s brother, who died last week (without the body present). It was a very significant moment for all of us; see the brothers joyfully praising the Lord with all their strength. The echo could be heard so far.
On Wednesday we will organize the house and return to Brazil as expected. Pray that Isaac decides not to change course back to Panama!
We are certain that we are well and on the right time and place.
A big hug to everyone.
