After a full year of confusion and frustration, we have finally settled into what we believe is our family's lot for the foreseeable future. We are living in Leesburg, GA and trying to get adjusted as the kids will start school in two weeks. I am doing optometry and speaking in churches etc. whenever opportunities arise to continue to share the vision of making a difference in Haiti through New Vision. I spoke at TCBC and my dad's church in NC this past weekend and it was a great blessing getting to see friends and family. I hate we were only there a couple of days and did not get to do much visiting. Joy has become a rep for a company that lets her give 10% of all sales to the mission. We pray that becomes a way to help build the new orphanage we so badly need. The kids all start school soon and we continue to search for resources to help us take care of their special needs and fulfill their potential.
It seems at times we are able to emotionally shut out Haiti and all that it entails as we become enthralled in all that life throws at us here. It is a blessing from God that he continually draws us back into awareness of the world's needs through us praying for the missionaries and friends in Montrouis, or by an unexpected phone call or email, or just seeing something that sends a rush of memories of the people and friends we don't get to see everyday now. I just pray we are able to continue to be used by God to impact His kingdom by ministering to the people of Haiti. Please continue to pray and support the ministry as we serve together.
