SO Thankful Replay…Day 24


Thanksgiving is almost here! Can’t believe how fast this month has gone. When Jose & I were in the states packing for the boat – we brought back in with us a Honey Baked Ham & a turkey! Our family, Miss Beth, Susan, & Erica will be together for our Thanksgiving Meal. We will also […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 23


As I look back over this past year  – it’s been a difficult one for our family for sure….. Speaking transparently – we dealt with a lot of loss this year. Learning to work in Haiti without my brother has been difficult. Though I know he is SO happy where he is now – I’m […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 22


Funny how the day before I’m talking about being up all night and the very next day I’m thankful for the sunrise….which I often miss more times than not! There are times though where I’m “forced” to look at it….like when we had to get up early to catch our flight into Haiti last week. […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 21


It’s funny. As I read back through this blog – there’s not a lot that’s changed. I’m still a night owl. I still have chronic insomnia. I still can go several days without sleeping if I don’t take my medicine at night. While I was in the states these past few weeks – my dad […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 20


  Well I have something pretty exciting to share with everyone today. Since moving to the Mole we’ve been praying for God’s protection for our campus. In fact I led our staff through the Circle Maker several years ago and we created a list of things we wanted for this ministry. We began circling & […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 19


Hmm….. Well….. Maybe….. I don’t know….. Really??? Hmm…. Those are the thoughts that typically go through my mind when I feel like the Lord is calling me to do something out of the ordinary.  If I’m not careful I can let those thoughts play on a reel over and over again until weeks have passed. […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 18


Jose, Asher, & I flew into the Mole this past Saturday after spending time in the states re-packing crates & barrels for the boat. We brought back with us hundreds of strands of Christmas lights! Sunday night we started decorating the courtyard. We’ve been working on it little by little each night. It’s not quite […]

So Thankful Replay…Day 17


Today we spent the morning in clinic and the afternoon decorating the house for Christmas. By “we” you probably think I mean Jose & me. And in a lot of ways that’s true. But the “we” I’m referring to is Momma Gigi & I. WE do pretty much everything together. Yesterday we took our family […]

So Thankful Replay…Day 16


Today I’m thankful for my hands. It’s hard to imagine what my ministry & family would look like without being able to use them. What it would feel like to not hold my children – to not be able to touch my patients to assess their illness – to not hold my husband’s hand – […]

SO Thankful Replay…Day 15


This is a hard blog for me to write about. I’ve written it twice today and deleted them both. There’s so much I wish I could share …..and yet putting it online for all to read is not really wise. Since moving to the Mole in 2010 – I have been blown away by the […]
