Back in Haiti!

Back in Haiti!
Originally uploaded by House of Hope.
Greetings once again from Haiti! Sorry I did not get a chance to update the blog while I was traveling. It was a very busy, 10 weeks. I enjoyed visiting with everyone that I had a chance to see, which turned out to be quite a lot of people. I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to travel with my sister, we had a great time together, and it made the miles pass by quickly as we drove across the country. We ended up putting on 5,400 miles onto our rental car in just four weeks!

Needless to say I'm thrilled to be back in Haiti. It was so good to see everybody again. Linda and the kids fared quite well during my absence, although it was a busy and difficult time for them all. Everyone is finally finished with their exams, some just finished last week. They are now getting full swing into summer vacation, starting with a basketball tournament this afternoon. Several of the "Our Hope" kids have gone to their homes to visit their families, please pray for safety as they travel, and also that they would have the chance to be a witness for the Lord during their time at home.

It was great to travel back into Haiti with two young ladies who are here to spend several weeks with us. Heather and McKenzie (in the picture) come from Oklahoma and Texas and are here to help out at the House of Hope. Today they have enjoyed getting to know some of the kids and spending time playing with them. Please pray for them as they are here, pray for health and safety, patience and endurance as they share God's love with the House of Hope family.

We appreciate your prayers and support of the HOH, and hope to be able to get back to our regular updates.

Please pray for John Widly, and Oldina two recent arrivals of the House of Hope, as they are on the road to recovery. Please pray also for the many visitors that we have coming during the next couple of weeks. Pray for safety, and Linda and I as we work out the final details.

We are excited to have reliable cell phone service in our area now. If you ever need to get in touch with us write us an e-mail and find out our numbers. Have a great week!
