Here Am I
Article submitted by Allan Kiang, Short-Term Team Member (First Haiti Relief Team)
We’ve been back for a little over a week and we hear a lot of people say to us: “I admire you for doing such a great thing.” Personally, hearing that makes me uncomfortable because we didn’t go to do something “admirable.” Everyone of us on this team simply stood up and said, “Here am I. Send me” (see Isaiah 6). To paraphrase my pastor’s sermon last week, we showed up when our brothers and sisters were in pain (see Job). We just “walked across the room” and God did the rest. We didn’t speak the language, yet we were able to be a comfort to those in need (we were involved in dozens of babies being born; we prayed with people as they or their infant lay dying), we improved God’s buildings (plumbing, concrete, electricity) and we experienced joy with our Haitian neighbors in the midst of their pain. God uses the willing.
