Rebuilding From the Inside Out

The Haitian President has declared this day a national day of mourning in remembrance of the quake. I'm told most places are shut down today. This is the day our friends are coming across the island to join in the work of sharing the Gospel with the local missions in this village. As of just a few minutes ago, they were picked up at the airport in Haiti, and now they are making their way through the city of Port-au-Prince. 2 years ago today, it was smoke and rubble and tears. Today, a country, a people, and a ministry are in the midst of rebuilding.

'If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like–minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. 

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death — even death on a cross!'~Paul
