As I sit here with my iTunes on shuffle and my daydreaming of Haiti… it is only fitting that “Go Tell It On The Mountains” would be begin to play. Immediately, my mind was swept up in the memories of sharing the story of Jesus’ birth. To the faces of children caressed in their mother’s arms as they listened. The faces of children, who’d come with friends or peers to heard about this man named, “Jesus.”
It made me think of the word “Ayiti” and it’s meaning. “Ayiti” means “land of mountains,” and what a beautiful land it is. I have been blessed to go to Haiti six times and lead five teams in sharing the story of Jesus in the land of mountains. My heart yearns to share more of about Jesus in the “mountains” and “everywhere.”
There is a longing in my soul to “Go Tell It On The Mountains” to those who have never heard… to those who need to hear of a divine love that offers us grace, restoration, and truth… His name is JESUS!
Mwen manke Ayiti anpil!
