Hard to Leave

We left Haiti a couple of weeks ago with mixed emotions. We wanted to get to the states to visit our older kids and family as well as the churches and friends that make our ministry possible, but we that meant we had to leave the boys and the people we minister to every day. The boys just cried as we left and several of the kids in our sponsorship program were out by our gate to say goodbye as we left at 5:30 am.

Getting ready to board the plane at the Port Au Prince Airport. Shelley Benfield and Missy Morgan were with us and that made it much easier! What a blessing to have committed friends!

Here is a picture from our outdoor worship service where we project onto the side of our well house and meet with youth to do worship in Creole, French, and English. We will miss that while we are gone.

I spent a week in classes in Florida learning about community health and how to battle malnutrition and other diseases of poverty. It really helped me to spend the week with other medical missionaries as well getting their perspectives and plans.

We bought them a Bible and song book and look forward to meeting each one and encouraging them to be involved in our youth worship and prayer times on Wednesday evenings.
