As I stated last post, we are in Haiti right now with a team from our sending church, Biltmore Baptist in Asheville, NC. The week has been going great. We have a construction team that has been building bunk beds for the orphanage that we partner with in Titanyen. We will drive up there on Friday to assemble the beds. The kids are so excited! We have also been ministering to the orphaned children here in Jacmel that are part of our sponsorship program. The kids are learning about Jesus and having a blast!
It is AWESOME to see our Mission House filled with these kids who are being taught from the Bible and learning to walk with Jesus. It brings me so much joy to see how these kids are beginning to grow. We want to continue this all the time.

Maria and I were crying last night as we were wrestling again with missing Susana. Our hearts ache so much. We miss her so much. We think about her all the time. I’m telling you…It’s not just a daily fight to cling to God and walk by faith and not by sight, but rather something that we have to fight to do every minute. But God is enabling us to grieve well. We cry. We wrestle. We agonize. But we are not crippled by these things. He gives us the grace and strength to press on and continue our own race. Thank you to all who have continued to lift us up in prayer.
