Haiti in Criisis


Still many news reports of Haiti and all the damage, loss of life and emotional pleas from families too numerous to mention. We were one of the families, crying out all night to Twitter , Facebook and people we had never met, trying to get any news of the area where we had family. We have heard now that they are safe. Not such good news for so many others. Please continue to pray for those on the front lines and for the thousands of families that have lost loved ones. We are heading down tomorrow and will be in contact with Haiti and trying to figure out what we can do. Donations can be made to help with many relief organizations and if you would like to help friends of ours, God Littlest Angels at

click on the Canada link if you are here at home...
They are 83 little ones to care for, PTL their buildings are intact.

Continue to send prayers, as this will be another long night. The future of Haiti rests in the hands of other nations, willing to get involved and make it happen.

Here today but my heart is already gone....

As we ready and get the last few days of work under our belts, I am reminded of the incredible purpose for our up coming trip. We have always needed time with our family to discuss all that God has for us and what and when and where and how that looks for our farm and our family the bigger picture. This trip is all about seeing the endless possibilities that are in front of us. We have a passion for Africa and for the children affected by war in Northern Uganda, we know of amazing organizations that are working to create a safe place, a place of refuge and restoration, a place that teaches about grace, mercy, forgiveness and skills to change tomorrow. It is that excitement to see God walk out in us His plan for 2010, that gives me Holy Spirit goosebumps. Yes, He can use me and you and take ordinary people out of their comfort zone to a place and a time that you never thought possible. We anxiously await this vacation but we also wait on baited breath for the decisions made for our future and the peace with family to embark on another great adventure. Blessings more from the sun of the beautiful Dominican Republic. C
