I cannot believe I have not posted anything since January 20th. Time if flying and I can hardly keep up!
In 59 days We leave for Haiti. I can hardly believe how fast this is coming up. Parts of me are ready, parts of me are nowhere near ready to go. However we are thrilled that God has called us to this new adventure with our family and, with our friend, Tiffany. The building you see in the picture is just like the one that was built this last week on the grounds of Ebenezer. In a few weeks a 2nd building will be placed near it. One of them will house our family for the summer and the 2nd one will be used for training. We also received word yesterday that an engineer was hired to look at the mission house on the grounds and we were told that it will be able to stay up. It just needs some big repairs. It seems daunting but I know that God will provide. He has never failed to provide yet and we have no reason to doubt Him.
I have one other HUGE prayer request. One thing that is desperately needed for Ebenezer is a vehicle. I have no doubt again that God will provide us just what we need at the moment we need it.
I am praying that I will be able to blog while down in Haiti. It was hard to know what the trip was going to look like before the earthquake. Now I know even less what it will look like but I cannot wait to see what God does and how he uses each and everyone of us. For those of you who have already donated towards are trip. I cannot say THANK YOU enough!! Thank you for believing in what we are doing and for being excited about Ebenezer! This is God's mission not ours! We just want to continue to be humble servants and to be open to His calling.
