From the updates we've heard, our house in the Caribbean (I really get a kick out of saying that) is nearly finished. We'll have some details to work through during our first
I just packed our “Haitian microwave,” better known as the pressure cooker. That’s what our new form of “convenience” is going to look like. Our generator is on a shipping container somewhere between Miami and Haiti right now, as far as I know. I hope that little jewel has a safe passage and gets through Customs easily, along with our couch and mattresses. Isn’t it funny what really becomes important to you when you are looking at having to start from scratch..…in a third world country!
Things are progressing smoothly so far. Satan has been trying to beat us down and discourage us, but our God is bigger and has faithfully carried us through all the trials we have been faced with. It makes the battle a whole lot easier to fight when we recognize who the enemy is. But if our God is for us, who can be against us? Our help comes from the Lord.
I’ve given up on wearing mascara. There’s probably no point. This week isn’t going to be easy for us or the ones we love. Our family has never been away from our hometown for more than a two-week period. Ever. Born and raised here, we are fixtures here in our end of the commonwealth. So, as you can imagine, our families are not too excited about the approaching of the 19th of June. So please pray for them – and us – as we say
My Mom and Dad think my kid hung the moon. :)
As soon as it is logistically possible, I'll be posting an update from once we get to Haiti. But not until I hug some special kiddos. First thing's first!
