The last few days were busy at JoyHouse. The construction crew built and painted a wall around the washer. Today was laundry day for the ladies. Its amazing how dirty clothing can get in Haiti.

There is some sort of electrical problem that came as quite a "shock." We are glad that Joe will be here in a few days to handle that.

Yesterday, several of the team went out hut to hut evangelizing and passing out tickets for the evenings events of worship, soccer, and pedicures. Most of the team went to the Daniel Project today where we were blessed to be able to love on babies, play with children, help with medical checkups and share the gospel.

Later, the men went out looking for young boys to play soccer with. We find them more receptive to hearing the message after building a bond on the field. Last night, two young men there accepted christ. Tonight, many others were presented with the good news.

The ladies continued ministering to the young women through the flip flop ministry. The young Haitian women were pampered with a pedicure, new flip flops, the gospel, and a message about purity.

Norma says this is the first time that has been done and it has just drawn the women here. What a humbling and fulfilling opportunity. Wow! Pray for these girls, the cost of following Christ is high for them and they have such huge decisions to make. They really count the cost here, and rightly so.

Jewlene said, contrary to Buddy's sermon series "They just get it" here. Tonight, three ladies accepted christ and last night there were nine salvations . Only to his glory.

Please continue to pray, Satan certainly is a roaring lion, but also a defeated foe.
Salvations to date: 22. Praise be to God.
