SO Thankful Replay…Day 11

It was 3am when our group arrived in the Mole. It was their first trip & the 12-passenger van they had been riding in had broken down several times.  We greeted them with cold sprite & Chariots of Fire….you know a little silliness to welcome them. The air was completely still. The ladies were rolling […]

Though I’m not old enough to be a granny – I am one just the same. Naomie who was just a baby when I was 9 years old…. now has three children – a 7 month old boy, a 3 year old girl, & a 5 year old boy. It’s hard for me to believe […]

Earlier this year our only hospital in town shutdown due to lack of funds. The hospital –  though very limited in what it could do – was like a security blanket. Asher had been there a half-dozen times to be stitched up. When we needed lab work done – that’s where we went. When pregnant women […]

Last year the Mole used Natcom for our internet needs. The internet was high speed  –  you could upload & download files fairly quickly. Since our campus was really the only people using Natcom the company left the Mole. Now we literally live on the “edge”! What used to be a joy of snapping a […]

Today as I was reading back through this blog – tears began to stream down my face. I had no idea the day God brought Beth into our lives – that she would be so much more than just a teacher for my children. As I have dealt with health issues over the last few years […]

When you live in Haiti there’s a balance you have to maintain. You see so much heartache, death, & disease – it’s easy to become a blob of tears. But if all you do is cry every day – then there’s little time for Kingdom advancement. But at the same time you have to be […]

So Thankful Replay….Day 5

Today I am thankful for God’s grace. For the unmerited, undeserving, uninhibited grace He lavishes upon me. I’m not going to sugar coat it …. this year there were moments where I was completely frustrated with the Lord. There were days  – sometimes weeks – where we weren’t on “speaking terms”.  There were days where my […]

So Thankful Replay….Day 4

So today I’m thankful for water. As I read back through this blog all of a sudden the water I was thankful for took a different turn. Over the last few years I’ve been thinking a lot about my salvation and about the ones that I love. Quite frankly – I’ve been thinking about the […]

Today I am SO incredibly thankful for my parents! As my parents get older – I find it more and more important to spend quality time with them when I can. My dad’s Parkinson’s is getting worse. He has good days and bad days…..but as time passes I realize more and more I simply have […]

Today I am thankful for the wonderful man God has placed in my life! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 19 years since we met.  Jose was definitely a gift from God that to this day I still don’t deserve. Everyone who knows him – knows that He is an amazing father, brother, son, husband, provider, […]
