Ohio. We had no idea when we left Haiti for our furlough in June last summer that we wouldn’t be back for a long time! In fact, it wouldn’t be until late January that we would return with Grace for a two-week visit. Between visits we have worked remotely on many Child Sponsorship projects as we continue to support the program as much as possible.
Susie’s parents have continued to decline and in December dad moved into the same nursing home where mom lives. We cleaned out his apartment and were blessed with some of our parents mid-century modern furniture and other keepsakes to fill up our rental house even more.
Haiti. We went to Haiti in January for two weeks to see Joab and Trinity and to get some ministry done as well! We were able to spend time with Joab’s family and make a meal for them, go to the beach, re-engage with the staff at Child Care, go on an all-day school visit adventure and teach a seminar on salvation at the local IRD trade school. It was a special time! We were surprised to experience several strong aftershocks while we were there.
God is so good! Joab and Trin are expecting their first child the end of June. Then Evan and Leah announced they are expecting their second child in September! We can hardly wait to meet these new creations of God. We are looking forward to the Télusma’s coming back here soon as they prepare for the arrival of their Haitian/American baby.
