Ups and Downs (Kelly)

Greetings this morning from Haiti. I hope all is well back home! I've been very busy working on getting this well done here in Haiti for Reynold, it's been a real challenge and kinda trying on my patience, the process has been very slow for me. I feel God is using this somehow in my life to help me in the future to better deal with things that arise in my life.
Last week, I had set the goal of drilling down and out the casing and test pumping the well in three days which God answered my prayers on. However, the well only pumped about 2.5 to 3 gallons per minute and we told Reynold we would get him 6 gallons per minute. So now I've driven five more feet of pipe down, while I was driving pipe I drove a rock up inside the casing and now I'm in the process of drilling through it. Please keep me in your prayers that God will help me get this well done before my Grandpa gets in here, if that's not Gods will, I ask that you all continue to pray that we're able to get it done when grandpa gets here and that things go very smooth. Complicating things further, last weekend I picked up a nasty cold. Monday I took the day off to rest up and try to get rid this bug, but it continues to be a persistent little bugger. Again today, I've taken another day to try and rest up to kill this pesky bug, so we will see what comes of it. This morning Krystle and I are going down to the stores in town to check prices and see what they have for the team to eat. We are hoping that they can buy it here instead of in the states allowing us to bring more goods in for the people. We also have a couple other little things that we are trying to do today. I would encourage you all to keep praying for the ministry down here, while we've been here some really cool possibilities have opened up, I would ask you all to continue praying that the Lord's will be done. Krystle has all her stuff ready for Sunday for teaching all the kids, she did it this morning while I wrote the blog:) I miss you all greatly, I hope you have had a good day as I know this will not be out until later. Blessings to all from Haiti, Kelly.

Kelly, as I trudge the days I have a sense that some days are better then others. Being aware that I was given the gift of merely sensing this is a true blessing. You my friend have asked for patience. As I read your blog, I sat back and wondered what the world would be like if we all had patience....then I remembered an old blue book that I read at says acceptance is the answer to ALL of my problems today. Miss you man, good work. God bless you and your sister.

Get better get some rest and may the force be with you, I mean may God be with you:) Until next time I love you and will be praying. Oh the snow is starting to melt here. Yeah! Miss you alot.
