We have to say it is good to be back in the states but Haiti is our home now. God has given us such a passion for reclaiming Haiti for Christ that it was hard to leave. We were able to be a part of three conferences, these were the first since the earthquake 2 yrs ago.
The most frequently asked question is when are we going back. The answer to that is totally up to when we have our monthly support, close to 100%. It feels like we have hundreds of people praying for someone else to support us not realizing they are the ones who know us. It's rare to be supported by people who don't know us. We have some giving $5 up to $300 a month, this all add's up. We are at 33% of our monthly support coming in now, this is helping us to be able to purchase tools, furnishings supplies and other items and have them shipped to Haiti.
Moving from this blessed country to a fifth world country, the poorest in the western hemisphere, is not a easy thing to do or commit our lives to help and share Christ love with these people and give up the comforts of our home. No play land at chick-fil-a or playground for the kids at all.
We are back to give others an opportunity to partner with us help train 3000 pastors and leaders in Haiti each year so they can reach even more Haitians than we could. Providing this compound and conference center is a blessing among the other ministries we are doing there.
The only thing holding us back from moving to Haiti full time is our support. We need people to partner with us monthly! We don't want to put a limit on God but we are praying that He will have us returning in July full time.
Please be in pray for us. We are in such a blur. In the last week have spoken in 2 Bible Fellowship Groups and spoken to all 3 Awana groups and an evening service. Praise the Lord! But in addition to this we have been trying to get receipts from the last three months turned in, thank you notes written, and other paperwork done.
We are in a limbo mode right now, partly here, and partly there, just trying to find where I packed the socks is overwhelming.

|These soccer balls with the wordless story on them are a great sharing tool with the Haitians. Most of them can't read but when they play with this ball they will remember that Jesus loves them.|
Pastor Ryan spoke about serving like Jesus. What an encouragement we got. We don't always know why or what God is doing exactly but we know the ultimate goal and the reason for what we are doing. We just have to be faithful on this long journey.
We thank ya'll for your continued prayers and support. We would not be able to obey God's call if it weren't for people like you.
