“Yes, we are alive and well, and we are definitely in Haiti! Thanks be to God who is our rock, our provider, and our sustainer.
First, let me say that moving to a foreign country requires a substantial transition time even if you’ve visited there several times before. We have settled in fairly well for the most part. My two greatest hindrances so far has been health issues and my dying old desktop computer. My primary focus is facilities maintenance for FIVE different buildings/properties, as well as serving as a missionary host to sister church teams visiting Haiti. Laura’s area of service has changed rather dramatically from what she had expected; but, God has prepared her for this role, too. She will be primarily responsible for coordinating sister church teams and projects coming to Haiti to visit with their Haitian sister church.
Overall, in spite of the normal pitfalls and roadblocks that occur in life, we are very excited and happy to be here, convinced more than ever that we are where God wants us to be! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your prayers and financial support! We are truly humbled and greatly blessed by all that God has done through you all.”
“Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done, and proclaim that His name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, for He has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world.” – Isaiah 12: 2-4.
