Share Count Up-date and Special Prayer Request

 We are so happy to let you all know that we have gotten in more shares and only have 16 to go! It has been fun to watch them come in and we have no doubt that God will bring in the remaining 16 as we continue to get closer to Haiti :o)
  Two weeks ago our family got to enjoy IHC in Dayton, OH and we loved getting to see a lot of YOU! We appreciate you all so much for how you have supported us with your prayers and investments into God's ministry in Haiti! You truly keep us going! Thank-you!  The bad news is that we all apparently caught some kind of yucky bug and it has done a number on us causing ear infections, high fevers, sniffles and even tonsillitis for one of us! We are beginning to feel much better now and thank the Lord as we NEED lots of energy to make it thru this next week! Lord willing, this will be our last week in the Hoosier state for a long time. We have MUCH to finish up with the packing and storing and last minute appointments this week. Would you please pray for God to give us all a healing touch and a huge dose of strength?! Thank-you! Also, please remember Danny as he is having an MRI Tue. morning to check out why he has swelling, pressure and loss of clear hearing in his r ear. We have put this in God's hands and are trusting Him for the outcome. He is faithful!

  Yesterday we had a large Haiti Benefit Yard/Bake Sale at our church parking lot. God gave us a beautiful day and we made a good amount of needed funds for our move. Our church family at Grace were very generous in the way that they donated items and baked goods to be sold. And several of them also donated their time and energy to helping out with the set-up, running the sale and the clean-up! Another HUGE blessing was that a local motorhome company donated one of their motorhomes to us to use for shade and ect. during the day. It came in very handy as most of our kids were not feeling well. They were able to rest in the motorhome while we worked the sale. A big relief for us and them! God is so good to know our needs even before we do!

  Today was our last Sunday at Grace and it was an emotion packed time! Our pastor called us up front and presented us with a card that the whole church had signed! So special! And then Danny shared with everyone where we are at with our shares and our plans. Lots of good-bye hugs were exchanged after the service. There a lot of precious people at Grace whom we love and appreciate very much! They have been with us since the beginning of this exciting Haiti journey and have been supportive all the way through. Having a good church family is indeed a blessing! We also claim Hobe Sound Bible church as our other church family too so we are doubly blessed!

 Thank-you for your prayers this coming week! We VALUE and NEED them! Blessings to you all!

Introducing Tape Designs By Becca!

 Our oldest daughter, Rebecca, is very creative and has designed adorable flowers out of duct tape :o)They are in different sizes, colors and designs and can be worn in your hair or to dress up your outfit. She has been selling them and we have just created a Facebook page called Tape Designs by Becca. All the money that comes from selling these will be put in a fund to use for our children's needs while we are in Haiti. This will help Becca come back to the States for youth camp and fund other things/events that come along for Becca, Ben, Abby and Caleb.
  The flowers can be picked up in person at our booth at IHC or you can order them through the mail. The prices are very reasonable and when you wear a flower by Becca you will be helping support us in Haiti too! Thank-you for checking them out!

Praise Note!
Praising the Lord for #31 share that came in last night! God is good! We are expecting #30 anytime! Ask God what He would have you do to support His work in Grande Riviere, Haiti!

We are putting out a challenge...will you join?!

  Our God is amazing and we are so excited at the way He has been moving the last few days! When I last up-dated we were just 40 shares away from having all our support in. I am happy to report that we are now 31 shares away! Danny and I have been praying about those remaining 31 shares and we BELIEVE God wants to bring them in! We are putting out a challenge to YOU! Is God leading you to sign up to support His work at Grande Riviere du Nord, Haiti?

 A full share is $20 a month for two years or a one time donation of $480. A half-share is $10 a month or $240 for the two yrs.
 We are going to pray in each and every one of these 31 shares that are left and we need you to help us PRAY and GIVE if God leads you. We are excited to see how God is going to bring these in so we can get to Haiti! God started this work in Haiti a long time ago and has asked us to be a part of it and we are HONORED that He would call us...this is SO much bigger than us or anything we could do or say! God is GOING to fund His work and He has and is going to use those who are obedient to his leading. Where do you fit in? Are you ready to be a part, to invest in souls for His Kingdom?

 We will be up-dating and letting you know as the shares come in. If you give through our 'donate now' button, please email us so we can count your share and let everyone know that another share has been covered. our email is

Up-coming Events

 Another work trip has been planned for May 9th-21st. We presently have 5 men going to get the interior work done in our house and make it as livable as possible. We hope to set a moving date soon after :o) Please help us pray as the details come together for the trip.
  In the meantime, we continue to sort, pack and store our things. We have a large yard/bake sale planned for the 27th to help raise funds for moving expenses. If there is anyone who lives locally and would like to donate items to sell or baked goods then please contact us. We would welcome your donations!
