Be Still My Soul….My Mind….My Heart…


I thought after a few days the pain would go away….or at least hurt less and less with each day that passes. But that boat in general carries a lot of sentiment.

Through All of It…


I can’t believe it’s been a month since I’ve posted. I was going to get better at that. It seems like some days can go on for forever – yet time just slips between my fingers. After being out 6 weeks – we returned home to Haiti last Tuesday. Our trip to the states was […]

Church Construction Update 1…


June 11th we broke ground!! YAHOO!!!  For 5 years we’ve been diligently praying for God to give us a church. The congregation had all but given up hope.
