Our team in Haiti

We have a team on the ground in Haiti with YWAM where they are building a duplex for two displaced families.  They took with them cereal, toilet paper, trash bags, paint brushes, pencils, a few tools, and some tractor parts.

Tractor parts?

Yes.  Tractor parts.

Kevin, a YWAM staffer, sent an email and told us his tractor broke.  He needed some small parts to come with our team.  Done for a whopping $16.42.

Here's what I think is cool about that:  God knew that the tractor was in trouble, that we were coming, and that there's a Case IH store down the street.  And we got to be a part of God's ongoing work in Haiti because of three little tractor parts for $16.42.

Sometimes Kingdom investment is small but has a big impact.

Seems like Jesus said something about that... (Matthew 13.31-32)
He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
Any small investment you need to make today?
