My Top Ten Greatest Fears of a Mission Trip to Haiti

Top Ten {Tuesday}

As I begin mentally preparing for my trip to Haiti, I can't help but find my mind wondering to all of the unknowns that will accompany me!

  1. Am I truly equipped to be a blessing?
  2. I've never left my family for this long before - 8 days
  3. Foreign foods! Can my stomach handle things I am not used to eating?
  4. Language barriers-Can I translate love without the use of words?
  5. Satan's attacks-When the kingdom advances, Satan throws up road blocks
  6. I never expected that on my first mission trip I would be going without my husband!
  7. Can I control the emotions that will inevitably find me as I witness abject poverty?
  8. Raising $1500-God knows where it is coming from, 'cause I sure don't!
  9. Surrendering to God's work
  10. Sleeping-Yes I worry about this.  I am a big sleeper and I already know the compound where we stay is surrounded at night by barking guard dogs.

But above all, I know my God holds all the answers.  If my name happens to cross your mind in the coming months as I prepare, will you pray for these items?  Thank you SO much!

You will do great - I promise! God equips the called so He will be with your every step. I have a friend who goes on regular mission trips to African destinations where they sleep in the compounds you mentioned - it amazes me becuase she is the "nervous type" but God (and a sleeping pill) sustain her :)
