God is So Good!

We moved upstairs into this 2-story house this month! Although a lot of trees must have been removed to carve this house out of the hill, there is a beautiful grove of palm trees at the entrance.

After a month of work we have moved! We enjoyed living in the lower level of this house, but now we are really enjoying our new home upstairs and the space it has! We will be able to entertain and welcome larger groups for dinner. We have never lived in a 2-story house so we are finding out all the benefits and drawbacks of a second story…where does everyone go when you need them? We are waiting for some furniture to arrive, but truthfully we have everything we need.

We thank God for everyone that has been a part of getting this all accomplished. Looking back we can only say that God is so good!

Lots of windows and high ceilings brighten this totally concrete house!

Here is our concrete house! A pass-through into the kitchen, high ceilings, and lots of windows open up the space!

A large kitchen and dining area will provide lots of room for good times!

On the back porch there is lots of space to hang out laundry or feed crowds of people! The porch and all outside spaces are shared with the Yordy’s, missionaries who live in the house adjoining ours.

The master bedroom has a door that opens onto the roof!

The roof has a wide view of the city of Les Cayes, the ocean and the island of Ile Vache beyond.

School is in full swing in Haiti as well as in our house. Grant and Trinity have their own rooms to study in now and Grace is in third grade at the Cite Lumiere Christian School. Grant is taking online Liberty University classes to receive a teaching degree, while Trinity resumes her homeschool classes with Abeka Academy as a 10th grader.

Grace is enjoying 3rd grade. She only has eight in her class and has the same teacher as last year, Mrs. Leger. She was so excited about that! The entire school started the first day with a chapel service for the teachers, students, and their families. We all sang songs to begin the service and had a wonderful speaker who spoke about Solomon. The message was clear that he could have chosen anything…but he chose wisdom!

Trinity and Grace enjoy their new room! Trinity spends most of her day here in school and studying.

Grant is enjoying his own room (it will convert into a guest room at times) and and also enjoying his flex schedule for online college!

Grace is loving third grade. Here she is with her “forever friend,” Faith Reinhard, before she moved back to Illinois.

Enjoying a group of men who came on a "vision" team this week. Mandy and Susie have been cooking up a storm and we all love it!

The missionaries here and in Bonne Fin enjoyed a group of men who came on a “vision” team this week.

It continues to be very dry here in Haiti. Dust blankets the plants and trees, machines, and food sold along the road, etc. Many families did not get a crop this Spring or Summer so they are in worse shape than before. There are some watering holes that have dried up around here that some have said has never happened in the 30 years they have been here. Pray that many wouldn’t give up hope and that “showers of blessings” will return to Haiti in all forms!
