With Might & Heart

I so appreciate the wisdom of Ecclesiastes 9:10, "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might..." and Colossians 3:23-24 "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." I often find myself giving this advise to others. How many of us have spent months/years wishing we knew what God was calling us to? How much better to do what is at hand and trust God will reveal His will to you while you are working for HIM? As my heart longs for "normalcy" to return to Haiti, I am determined to follow this advice. I am prayin

In the Dark

It has been 3 weeks our students had any classes at our main school, as Haiti has been in an almost constant state of protesting and rioting, accompanied by looting, roads being barricaded, gang activity, continued fuel crisis, food shortages (inaccessibility), closed businesses, etc... This week a neighboring village had a utility pole chopped down and used to block the road. This cut off our internet access on our Grand-Goave campuses.

Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Our churches are praying. Here men from the Thozin church gather in the library to pray for the country. They have been weary and heavy burdened for their families, friends, and country. Jesus promised them rest. Thank you for holding our Haitian friends up in prayer. Please continue to join them in trusting God to lead them in HIS ways. We were able to squeak by with two days of school at our St. Etienne campus this past week. That's two

Not Our Plan

This week did not follow our plans at all! After telling you how grateful we were for our school managing to function, despite problems throughout the country, Monday brought a different picture for the week. (Mondays in Haiti tend to set the tone for the week.) As a consequence, I only have a few pictures to share with you. Five students arrived for school on Monday along with localteaching staff. Everyone from outside the city of Grand-Goave, including medical staff, could not make it from point A to point B, due to roads being blocked. There were a lot of threats spread over the weekend to discourage parents from sending their children to school. I don't blame them, as children are
