This week!

Sunday was an awesome day for Nate and I!! Not only were we commissioned for our upcoming trip to Haiti, our good friend, Diane, helped arranged it so a bunch of our really good friends from the Haitian church in Grand Rapids were there to surprise us!! It was SO awesome!! To be able to worship with them and our home church was just incredible!!! Like a little taste of Heaven!!!!

I thought I would post our flights here as I know some of you like to be able to put in the flight numbers too see if we have landed yet or not or if we are delayed.

We also found out last night that our really good friend from Church, Mari, is going to be our trip prayer warrior!!! She will specifically be praying for our mission trip while we are gone!!! This is SO awesome!!! Thank you, Mari!!!

Please pray for our trip, our children, and Tiffany (she will be staying with our kids)!

Hard to believe that we are only about 3 1/2 days away from going. There seems to be so much to do! Thanks to all of you who volunteered your help this week with my kids in case they need something!!
