I was finally able to get this video uploaded after two days of trying...don't take your internet for granted, people!

A few answers to prayer to share:
1) We got our bank paperwork--woo hoo! So the residency process marches steadily on, and we should have it in hand in about a month.
2) We met with our tutor today...which was good, but brought to light some new information. Pray for us to know how to adjust our ideas of how things would be...nothing in Haiti seems to be quite like you expect it, I'm learning.

Today was a tough day...lots of people here seem to think that we owe them handouts. It's hard to make friends when everyone wants to be your friend...but only until you buy whatever they're selling. Pray for opportunities to share God's love and build relationships in the community, and for wisdom for us for how to share our resources.

And now...without further ado...my second video!


  1. I get up in the morning and look for your blogs the very first thing-with my morning coffee, of course. I am absolutely thrilled for you to have this incredible opportuniy to share God's love in Haiti. However it is easy for us, in the comfort of our homes to miss that with the incredible opportunity come incredible challenges-how tough it must be,for instance, to be in a foreign country where people not only speak a foreign language, but have a totaly different culture and to know that this is not going to be a quick two week experience and then back home to normal,family friends and loved ones.
    Thank-you for sharing the challenges with us.We do pray that God will keep you safe physically, emotionally and spiritually. We also pray that he will send you good, true friends and that he will keep you from feeling alone.

  2. Your videos are excellent, they give us back home a real feel for where you are and we appreciate that. Look at your blog each day with eager anticipation.

  3. Thanks for the video of where you are and what your are doing. It is awesome to see that you are doing well and to get a feel for where you are. We will continue praying as you learn the language and continue to adjust to your new surroundings.
