Testimony: Dawn D.

I can't believe it's a week since we left for Trinidad!! I am forever changed from this missions trip. I thought I was going there to bless people but was I wrong!! I was the one blessed more than my heart can express. There were so many special times that I endured on this trip. Times of laughter, tears, and exhaustion.

I was so taken by the love from the Kids at Hope Centre. I actually fell in love with three sisters whose mom had died at child birth with the last child and the father is in jail. These children were abused but the joy and love that they expressed was incredible. They just came and sat on our laps, played with our hair like they knew us for years. I believe I am going to be able to sow into those young girls lives again!

One particular moment at Hope Centre I was walking through the home. I went into one of the girls room to find one girl lying in bed with a fever. I asked her if I could pray with her and if she knew Jesus. She pointed to a picture she had of Jesus over her bed. As I began to pray for God to heal her body, I just felt an overwhelming joy come over me for this girl. I prayed speaking life into her and the future that the Lord has for her. She then got up and joined the fun. And guess
what? The fever was gone!! Praise the Lord! These are God's children and I am glad that I got to be part of it!!

There is so much more to tell. St. Mary's was really hard for me, but we are not finished there as the crew knows. Thanks, Harvest Time, for sending us out into the world to set the captives free.
