We just received an email of the greatest urgency. Right now the head missionaries for the Global compound are in Ecuador, encouraging missionaries there. That leaves 2 couples on the compound until yesterday. One couple has to fly out today because of a death in the family, leaving one couple to run all the ministries that Global provides to the Haitian people.
They are pleading with us to come as soon as we can. We want to be there helping run things. But we can't even think to set a date for going back full time until we start getting funds coming in. We are at about 20% funded right now. Please pray about what you can do in Haiti. When you support us you are supporting well drilling, the kids in the schools, the burn clinic, church planting, conference center, etc. We are not going down to live in a tropical island and go to the beach everyday. We are going because we have been blessed beyond measure and we want to obey the Lord and give back. No amount is too small, it is individuals giving $50 - $100 (some give less and some are able to give more) a month that will allow us to get to Haiti full time and ensure that these most basic needs are met in Haiti, things we take for granted everyday. Please pray about supporting us. We know God will get us there. We feel He is calling all of us to further His kingdom in one way or another.
|We didn't have it stacked to the top but it was pretty full.|
|We had many friends to help load the truck, well after dark.|
|The kids were really excited to ride in the truck|
|The kids are worn out!|
|We display the flag of each country that Global has missionaries in.|
When we returned home we continued to slowly whittle away at the accumulation of stuff. I am happy to say that we are ready to start painting. We are praying for a miracle, that God will have someone ready to rent our house before we go back to Haiti the first week in December. We have faith that God will provide. That will be a huge step in our journey to moving to Haiti full time.
We still have a lot of fundraising to do, we are at about 20%. Please pray that God will put it upon the hearts of many to support us. We know that we need prayer most of all but without support we can not go.
|Getting the rooms cleaned out and ready to paint.|
|Xander and Ellie love sleeping in the living room. Their beds can be right next to each other.|
|We are living on very little, and it is in the living room.|
