Verse #1 You call me out upon the waters The great unknown, where feet may fail And there I find You in the mystery In oceans deep, my faith will stand Chorus: And I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in Your […]

After a great week of ministry with the team, I realized I needed to pull myself aside today and spend some time alone with God. I’m not much of a beach person – I don’t really like sand and I haven’t swam in the ocean since I was stung by a jellyfish as a teenager. […]

2014 HAS BEEN A GREAT YEAR!!! (yeah I know we’re only 12 days into it). I have to say it quickly before something bad happens!! I think those were my famous last words until about the 18th of January last year….. when our staff had an incident trying to buy supplies for the team. It […]

Jose’s mom flew into Port-au-Prince yesterday afternoon and will spend the next two weeks with us. Jose took the 10 hour bus ride Christmas night to pick her up! She arrived in the Mole around 9am this morning. Mamita hasn’t been to Haiti since Gabriel was a baby. In fact her last trip here was […]

It was our first Christmas in Mole St Nicolas….. The kids spent the afternoon making cookies for Santa! We also made a cake and celebrated Taylen’s birthday. After we were finished baking it was time to get dressed for the Christmas service. I have already shared on the Mole Blog about our Christmas Eve Service. I […]

Today the kids got to open the presents they got each other. I love the way they thanked everyone after opening their gifts – –  and for the thoughtfulness they had in picking out their gifts for each other. Isebelle loved all her baby dolls. She would stand-up and clap after EACH and EVERY gift! […]

You’re Here…

Hold on now, got to take a deep breath. I don’t know what to say when I look in your eyes. You made the world before I was born, And here I am holding you in my arms tonight. Noel, Noel Jesus our Emmanuel. (Chorus) You’re here. I’m holding you so near. I’m staring into […]

A Mole Thanksgiving…

Our last Thanksgiving/Christmas we celebrated in Haiti was in 2009. After the earthquake in January 2010 – we felt like God called us to minister to a new group of people who haven’t had the chance to really hear about Jesus. We had to rent a place until we were able to build on the […]

Don’t Let the Door Hit You On Your Way Out…

Everyone who knows me – knows I’m not a “morning” person. Now you give me a couple of 5-hour Energy – yes typically I need a dose of 10-hours  – and then I’m ready to hit the pavement. I’ve always been a night owl by nature. I get the most work done in the evenings […]
