Morning


What a day brings. Morning has broken. The sounds of night have passed. Fighting dogs, people praying, people singing, motorcycles, and mosquitoes hunting blood. And did I say hot? It is 6:00 a.m. And I am out here on the front porch typing a blog on my iPhone. Seems weird to not have electricity, but I can connect to data on my cell phone. The kids are off to school, and Rob has run into town. We are getting around slowly. Kelly and Krystle are still asleep. Naromie is under the weather. The drive up here last night was enlightening. Reminded me all over again how blessed we really are. Robinson did hire a police escort. He does not like Port Au Prince. It is pretty intense there that is for sure.
I am reminded already this morning how good we have it. I watched a few minutes of a program on the plane yesterday and Americans were complaining about healthcare. We don't have a clue. I always want to have a heart for the suffering of others. But what what of suffering if your definition is way to shallow. May God help us. Love to all, God bless you today. And may you rejoice in the abundance of what you enjoy that you don't even realize! Forgive any errors as I am typing this on my phone.

Hi there, glad you guys arrived safe and sound. Ramona's dad is going fast and so Ramona hasn't had much sleep,poor girl. I stopped by to see Jessica and they kept me waiting 45 minutes! Don't know what's up with that. Anyway she said to tell you she says hi and looking forward to being back in church. Also, our water heater went out tonight so we have no hot water! Fun times, hope your day was fun too! God bless and take care. Don and Ramona
