Part II “The jar of flour will not go empty, nor the jug of oil go dry…” 1 Kings 17:16

11 Nov

When we arrived in Jèrèmie, Don had to meet with another co-worker from Madonna University who was participating in a mission with the Methodist Church community in Jèrèmie. Yvon took us to the Myriam Bethlehem Family, a religious community that we met last month while we were in Jèrèmie. We tried to contact the Sisters by phone but we never got an answer. We found out that their cell phone had been stolen. When we arrived at the convent we knocked on the door, when the Sisters saw us they yelled out our names and welcomed us. Here we experienced God’s tender loving care. The Sisters are known for their welcoming spirit and hospitality and we certainly experienced that the whole time we were with them.

They already had a houseful of guests. It is their mission to open the doors of their homes to receive persons wishing to be refreshed spiritually by participating in catechesis, prayer and community. This week they had 7 young adults sharing community and prayer.

We asked the Sisters if we could take a retreat day the next day. We had the opportunity for Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration and faith sharing. In the evening we shared recreation with the whole group. It was truly an international experience of Haitians, French Canadians, Polish, and American.

We were blest to receive the grace of a welcoming spirit from this community once again.

We realize more and more how God is leading us, taking care of our souls, and teaching us more and more what is ours to do in our Felician mission in Haiti.
