“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
Most read these verses in their lifetime. Usually it’s in connection with a funeral. However, life also weaves it’s way though happy seasons as well. Even in the letting go there is hope for the new. For example, a popular speaker quits something every Thursday. Sometimes it’s a burden he gives up, sometimes it’s letting go to make room for the incredible. What would you give up? A lack of commitment? An activity that doesn’t fit into the path God has you traveling? What season are you experiencing?
Life has many changes, some minor, some major. Hope for Haiti recognizes the seasons in life.
A season is closing, but a new one begins. This is the last blog post at www.emevi.blogspot.com. However, the adventure continues at our new blog site: www.hopeforhaitiws.wordpress.com. We find the flexibility at Wordpress will allow greater opportunities for us to connect with you and encourage you to be involved with the people of Haiti, even from your home.
We work with established Christian organizations in Haiti because we believe that God can do a wonder for Haitians through Haitians. The ministry we currently support is called EMEVI. However, here in the states, the group that helps EMEVI is called Hope for Haiti. Imagine a book with EMEVI on one page, and Hope for Haiti on the conjoining page. Same book, different pages. Therefore, we’ve established the new blog as www.hopeforhaitiws.wordpress.com.
Another question we often receive is “why ws?” It’s simple: “ws” stands for website. If you venture to www.hopeforhaitiws.wordpress.com, you’ll also have the address of the website where all our projects, sponsor children, and more information is housed: www.hopeforhaiti.ws. We encourage you to frequently visit each site and learn more about the ministries.
Please feel free to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions, suggestions, prayer concerns, or just to say “hello!”
In this season of reflecting, joy, and revelation, we pray for you and your family the happiest of holiday seasons. We also pray a particular peace… for your season.
