Thanks from Haiti!!

A BIG THANK YOU from Haiti!

News! We were so thankful to get our new Ranger on the recent sea container! We want to convey our thanks and appreciation to all those that contributed to this new set of wheels. It even came with the gas tank clear full! This has been a huge encouragement to us and will be invaluable here for many years to come!

The sea container is driven across Haiti after being shipped from Miami to Port-au-Prince.

Even Lazarre, a Haitian friend, was so very excited for us. He couldn't resist sitting in it when the camera came out!

We also got the 17 gallons of paint we put on that container…which only meant “Get to work!” We have been busy painting and organizing ourselves for our upcoming move upstairs to larger quarters. With thanks to many fellow missionaries and friends we got it all painted in three weekends! We never thought we would be able to move this quickly!

We thank the Lord for each of you and the many ways you share your love with us.

Most of the first floor got knocked out in the first weekend!

Painting is much more interesting when it is your own room!

Lately, we have started a Bible study with three Haitians who often drop by the house.  They are all young believers in the Lord and we would like to disciple them further in their walk with Him. We have started the Salvation study with them, which is being translated into the Creole language. This study helps them all learn English much better as we go through these verses.

Such a blessing to share with Haitians who are hungry for God's Word!

One thought on “Preparing for the Next Steps!

  1. Thanks so much for the update and pictures. It looks like you arrived in Haiti and made up for any lost time while you were in the states – moving, painting, bible studies, entertaining American guests, plus your usual work. Wow! We feel exhausted just reading your blog. With our love and prayers,
    Frank and Kathy
