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!
