Praying for Team Haiti: Day 7

Today's prayer item for Team Haiti is... health!  My prayer is that each team member will be in good health as they prepare to travel to Haiti; and that each one will remain in good health while there.  Also, as they get their vaccinations... that each person's body will not have any negative reactions to the vaccines.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
--- 3 John 1:2 (NIV)
On a side note, my daughter had a huge growth spurt this past year and A LOT of her clothes suddenly didn't fit her anymore!  At the start of this year, we cleaned out her closet and ended up with a mountain of clothes that are still in VERY good condition --- some of which she has not even worn for more than just a few times!  

Then the earthquake struck in Haiti...

Normally, we would have donated these used clothing to a local Thrift Store.  But because of the earthquake, my daughter felt strongly that we should wait for an opportunity to send her clothes to Haiti.  It's been a few months now and we still have the clothes... mainly because we couldn't find anybody to take the clothes directly to Haitian children for us.  

Yesterday, hubby got an email.  A group of people is going down to Haiti on May 11 to volunteer at an orphanage for children with HIV and they need donations of used clothing!!!  My daughter is beyond thrilled... her wish had become a reality!  We are going to deliver the mountain of clothes this afternoon and they will be on their way to Haitian children next week.  By the way, the mountain of clothes became two mountains as we quickly sorted through my son's closet as well yesterday afternoon.

So cool... God's attention to details is just plain awesome!!!
