Sunday Night Fun

Here is just a quick shot of what might happen here on a Sunday evening.  Dan made dinner tonight and often brings up the computer to listen to music while he does the dishes.  He was watching/listening to some music videos his brother Jed and nieces have done and graciously sent him.  I came into the kitchen to find this scene.  Everyone likes your music, Blood Harmony!  It doesn't look too comfortable to me, but everyone seemed quite content with the arrangement.  Sorry about the photo quality...I had to catch the moment quickly before it passed!

A prayer request and some pictures

Blogging is hard sometimes.  There is always something to write about, but the timing is not always right.  Right now is one of those times.  We have many emotions about our friends here in Haiti and the hardships they face.  Right now it is "back to school" time, a very difficult time for anyone with a school age child.  It is a time when money is often short.  Difficult decisions need to be made.   Maybe parents have to choose what child will go to school this year if they can't send more than one.  Maybe they do not have enough money for any of them.  They often look to others to see if they could borrow or get the money from someone else.  I could write a whole blog about this, but I will not at this time.  I will just ask you to pray for children and parents during this difficult season.

Our internet has not been stellar lately, and we always have something to keep us busy!  I know I have not blogged in quite some time, so I thought you might enjoy some photos.  Dan's sister, Rachel Shaw, along with our nephew and several people from their church in Michigan recently came on a mission trip to Children of the Promise.  They did a little Bible school with our kids and I decided to share a few of the photos from that.  Our Haitian children are learning and growing each day!  They are so fun to watch and play with and laugh at.  They are toddlers and preschoolers so they are challenging also, but so fun!  Enjoy the photos!
