Au Revoir (Good-bye)

This will be my last post in Haiti for now. Unless something happens we will leave early in the a.m. for Port au Prince. Poor Robinson has made the trip to Port 5 times of the 8 days we have been here. He is a weary lad, fought hard to make this happen. We have done our best. God will have to do the rest. So thankful for all your prayers. It has been a rewarding trip on so many levels, I have no regrets. The tent is something about timing at this point. It was ordered early enough, so there is some reason God has stalled. For one thing, I was hoping the ordination would take place on the new property, but as it played out, it was as it should have been. Robinson's place for ordination was where this work began and in the circumstance where he has so faithfully labored the past 5 years. So all the struggle will bear fruition. God is faithful to do what He has promised. That much has become clear.
Part of our hearts will remain in Haiti. And long I think will be our labor here. So if this is a grand continuation of that vision, so be it. Love to all, will try to post in Miami tomorrow afternoon. We send our love to all and a special shout out to Aunt Donna and Aunt Lyn who have arrived in TC for a short visit. Hope to see you in a couple of days. And Don and Ramona, we continue to carry you on our hearts. So sorry we are not there to help with the burden of the day. But God must have known about this as well. Thanks again to all our followers. Blessings until then!

I am SO proud of all of you! I have cried several times yesterday and today while reading your posts to John and the kids. Tears of sadness, tears of perspective, and tears of pride. Hugs, kisses, and lots of love to all of you. Can't wait to see pics, hear all the stories, and know the extent of how this trip has changed you. It certainly has changed us. Thanks for the reminders, perspective change...and most of all, for your hearts. Thanks for sharing this journey with all of us. We are honored! We love you, and are praying for safe traveling mercies. Rob and Naromi -and the rest of our Haitian family... we love you ....bunches and bunches. xoxo
