Disappointments and Prayers for Healing

 Good Afternoon All,

As this should be our day to set off on our trip to Haiti, instead of joyful and exciting, it is saddened by the trip cancellation due to the health of Sangela, the wife of Pastor Payot..She has been hospitalized in the Dominican Republic for an abdominal  infection that has affected her liver and gallbladder. As she remains hospitalized in D.R., we are very concerned for her health and are asking for prayers for her quick and total recovery.

She, Pastor Payot and their family, as well as the community of Caracol have become family to us and we suffer when they suffer. Sangela attends to our needs when we are there, faithfully feeding us twice a day and always has our quarters wonderfully clean upon our arrival. She is our Sister in Christ!

We had already reserved November 10-17 for our next trip down there and I believe that will be when we go again rather than try to make up this trip at some time in between. We already have enough fabric for the beginner class, thanks to the generosity of our Maplewood Church Family in Omaha. A big thank you to them.

The team was terribly disappointed, but our disappointment cannot outweigh the Payot family's worry and concern. Please join us in continuous prayer for Sangela and her family.

In God's Service,


Nancy Evans
