Safe AND Secure?


When I tell people I live in Haiti I’m often asked one of these two questions: 1 – Do you feel safe? 2 – Do you feel secure? The answer to both of those questions is YES! And although they sound like the same question – they couldn’t be more different. When I was a […]

From Morgan’s Blog…


The Mole Summer 2014 Quote Book Visit her blog This summer because we did not have many teams we spent a lot of time hanging out with the Castillo kids whether it was just at meal time, our secret project, movie night, or activity days. While we hung out with them there were many times […]

Every Day…


We thought of you with tears today, But that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, Every day before that too. We think of you in silence, Though the kids often speak your name. We laugh & share our memories, While hugging on your picture frame. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll […]

Happy 7th Birthday Gabriel!


Gabriel was born on July 21st – 8 weeks early! I wasn’t able to even hold him before he was rushed to the NICU where he spent many weeks on a breathing machine. Twice we were told that he would probably not live through the night. The tears stream down my cheeks just thinking about […]

No Exceptions?


Our family rarely visits  amusement parks in the states because it’s a little crazy going with all of our kids. There’s nothing worse than standing in line for 30 minutes only to get to the front and see that sign that says,  “You must be 48inches tall to ride”. That means the girls can go […]

My Kids…Your Cameras


When teams are in Haiti – we ask for their camera cards each night at dinner. Then we upload several pictures while the teams blog about their day. This is one of my favorite things to do because you get to learn all about their day just by seeing all their pics. Not only that […]

Are They Following Our Cues?


When I was little my dad worked as a policeman, fireman, and pastor-man! :D I always thought it was so cool because we knew the latest and greatest that was happening in our town. We didn’t have to follow the fire trucks or police sirens– we already knew where they were going. One of my […]

Mail From Mole…


Today I got to fellowship with one of my best friends Diane (Wedding Lady)! We got to talk about all the weddings that happened in the Mole this past week.  Oh how I wish I were able to be there! Hearing about the ministry that happened last week while her team was there is SO refreshing! […]

From Rags to Worth…


We moved to the Mole in May of 2010. We didn’t come alone though. In fact we brought several Haitian families with us – about 15 people total. These were families that we knew we wanted to do life with – that we wanted to work alongside of – that were coming to the Mole […]
