We have been blessed with two groups of visitors in one month!
Over Thanksgiving we were happy to have visiting Jason, Gwen & Noah Riggenbach, long-time, close friends from our home church in Smithville, Ohio. We were so thankful that our “guest room” (Grant’s room) was ready just in time for their arrival…the beds we had shipped in July arrived the week before they did!
We had great weather and many good times as we showed them all around the area and some of what we do here. They were such good sports and Gwen even agreed to cross a river on foot…twice! Our Thanksgiving season was blessed by their support and encouraging words. That wasn’t all they brought us…their suitcases were stuffed with some requested items as well as extra goodies! They got to meet their sponsored child Nathanael, his family, his home…and also attend his church on Sunday morning!
The second group of visitors arrived here last week with Evan! We were excited to see our son again! We warmly welcomed our dear friend Joe Smith and the four third-year nursing students from Malone University in Canton, Ohio, that came with Evan for some international nursing experience…Natalie, Margeau, Grace and Corrina. We squeezed in two beach days and lots of fun between all the valuable Haitian clinical experiences they received.
