Yes, we we’re totally exhausted after a 16 hour drive from Black Mountain, NC to our final destination in Connecticut. Thankfully, the girls did great! They managed to keep themselves entertained with each other, play pretend, and fall asleep all the way to New Haven. I don’t even think they realized when we finally arrived, at midnight, that we were finally at Grandma Judy’s house.
We had a great time in Connecticut. It was fun to see family and friends and share with them the vision God’s has given us for Haiti. We were blessed with the response we received in Connecticut. This being our first stop in our journey of building our support team certainly gave us the boost and encouragement that we needed to continue to trust that the Lord is the one building this ministry and not us.
Our friends and family were excited for us. And many extended their support to us by committing to pray, give, go, provide resources, etc. Overall, our trip was what one would call a success! Granted, all we did was share with those God has put in our path. God did the rest. And He is building a great team around us to do the work He has set aside for us in Haiti.
We are thankful for everyone who will be involved in this work. Every single one of you is a necessary part in this ministry to the orphans and the at-risk children of Cam Coq. And as you pray for us, we will pray for you that the Lord will continue to use you to bring change in the lives of many. Though you’ve never seen them, you love them!!—Maria
