Shirts from Lincoln to Croix Des Bouquets

Last Christmas, Grace Chapel put together a project raising funds for t-shirts and multivitamins for the children of Haiti.  GC member Ben Welstead owns a screen-printing business and made shirts charging us less than his personal costs.  The shirts are now being used as school uniforms for the kiddos at Ebenezer orphanage in Croix Des Bouquets:

Here are a couple pictures of the kids in the shirts:

Here's a video of Ben making the shirts (from an earlier blogpost):

Easter Message

I gave the Easter message at Grace Chapel last Sunday.  After a lengthy opening Scripture reading and prayer, I start the message talking about some of our experiences in Haiti last week, and I close the message with some reflections on our time as well.  I wrote the message not just with the Christian in mind, but the nonChristian as well.  It is written for the religious, the nonreligious, the churched, the nonchurched, the believer and the agnostic alike.  I hope whether you embrace the message of Christ's cross and resurrection or not, you might benefit from the message:

Or if you prefer to go straight to the Grace Chapel website to download the April 4th message:
