I have truly felt overwhelmed with gratitude this week as our family has been showered with blessings. In one short week, God provided the remaining $2,500 we needed for travel. We have found that the people who we least expect are the most generous. Additionally, the final $3,500 was given so we can begin our Solar Power Project at the mission complex in Pignon while we are there.
God also brought renters to take care of our house on Harrison for the 10 weeks we are away. (We didn't even have to move our furniture!)
Before we departed from Fresno, our friends Chris and Jen Schultz hosted a prayer night at their home. We believe in the power of prayer and we felt God's power and strength buoy us up as more than 20 friends plus their kids offered up prayers and encouragement on our behalf. It was like a blanket covering us as we go out.
I was reminded again that it truly "takes a village" to send a family of five to Haiti. We are so grateful for all of you - our sending team! We would appreciate your prayers as we depart for Port Au Prince today and head to our mountain home tomorrow.
