If I could bring one tangible piece if Haiti with me, it would be their music.
Bongo drums, homemade percussion instruments, voices full of praise for the Lord and joy in Him, penetrated with occasional claps – music you have to move to, you have to join in with!!
We have had the privilege, and I may be the only one on the team who considers it a privilege, of hearing this beautiful praise nearly every evening until past 10, and waking up to it at 4 a.m. almost every day. This… I will truly miss Sunday night. 🙁
This music is one of the simplest and sweetest ways we are able to join with believers from their cultures and languages. We may not know the words of each others’ songs, but we can fully enter into worship with them, praise the Lord!
