Holly’s latest message just came in from Haiti. The article arrives first with numbers for picture place-holders. Then, I get the pictures — most of the time. ūüôā If a caption doesn’t make sense, a photo looks out of place, or one seems to be missing, we have the less-than-stellar internet access in Haiti to thank. But God is good, and Holly is doing God’s work. Here’s her latest report.¬† — Joey


¬§ It’s daylight at 5:45 am in Cazale – I know this to be true because I was wide awake at that time (shocking but true……a morning person, I am not).

¤ Mountains are even more beautiful as the sun rises behind them.

¬§ Listening to someone talk about their life’s passion, love and respect for the people they serve and God’s love, provision and miracles experienced every day is just amazing. BLESSED!

¤Haitian toddlers throw hissy fits too!

¬§When 5 white ladies start painting the gate into the clinic in Cazale………a crowd forms. We almost had to call in crowd control. Seriously.

Just like at home……I’m never in the pictures because I’m the one taking them!

(especially when at least one white women is slightly off center & its not even me this time!) Notice the quality of the awesome selfie.

¤And evidently, it takes 5 white ladies to paint a gate.

¬§Unlike my job, having a sensitive sense of smell is NOT a bonus here. I don’t believe you want or need details. Clue: 20 babies. One room. No windows. One box fan.

¤Mac Young can and will do the Charleston at the drop of a hat.

Supper was waiting…….


Yummy Haitian oatmeal!!!!!!

Our awesome accommodations were ready….


Its been a richly blessed day of travel. It was completely dark upon our arrival, so I wasn’t able to take many photos today. But check back tomorrow!!!!

Bonus: The missionary families here have  4 school age kids. Each year, they hire a teacher(s) from the US to come here and work w/ the kids. This is their classroom.Its just across the hall from our bedroom.

I am no longer my own, but Yours.
Put me to what You will,
rank me with whom You will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for You
or laid aside for You,
exalted for You or brought low for You.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and heartily yield all things to Your pleasure and disposal.

And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,You are mine, and I am Yours. So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,let it be ratified in Heaven.

Yes Lord. Everyday.
