In-Between Breaths – He Whispers To Me..

Over the last week I’ve been preparing for our trip back to Haiti. For some reason I was unsettled about coming back. There was some anxiety and I NEVER feel anxiety about coming home. It was 2am and I had the TV on in the background while I was booking tickets for a brand new […]

There Will Be A Day

I found myself in tears today. I know – shock of all shocks! LOL! I was driving back from the mission office today and this song came on the radio. When I first listened to the chorus I found peace thinking that one day all of the pain in Haiti will be gone. All these […]

We Are The World….

Love the new version of this and how they incorporate Haiti into it.

His Personal Assistant….

Jose and I met with a psychologist this morning. We wanted to talk about how to deal with what has happened in Haiti and how it’s affected our family, the staff, and the Haitians. I won’t go into a lot of details but did find some comfort in talking to him. There was something that […]

People are looking for answers to this tragedy and so they’re coming to the […]

Captivated as we’d been by the […]

God Is The Same Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow….
