a good day

by Kayla Raymond


Today was a good day.


We made real American bacon for breakfast and put on our best dress for church. We worshiped an amazing God and prayed in another language. For lunch we dined on Haitian food at my friend Gerard’s house with his family. He treated us with an ice cold Coca-Cola. 

I tried to put the boys down for a nap afterwards, but nap time turned into a game of hide-and-seek and hide-and-seek turned into swimming in the ocean. After floating and playing, we snacked on peanuts and watched the waves in the ocean.

At 5:00 Webert’s soccer team played in a championship soccer match and I enjoyed the view of a beautiful rainbow over the mountains as I played with the village kids.

To end the day, God spoke to me as I meditated on Matthew 12:18….

“Here is my servant (you and I) whom I have chose,

the one I love, in whom I delight (He truly delights in us);

I will put my Spirit on him (He dwells within us, making us His temple),

and he will proclaim justice to the nations (we can bring hope to the world).”


Hope you too had a blessed day.

Love from Haiti.
