Birthday Celebration

Day two with the children was full of even more fun and laughter. We are beginning to develop better connections with them as well as see more of their personalities come out.  The more we spend time with them, the more we realized that it doesn’t matter the way in which we communicate with the children but rather our actions with the children will remember down the road. Today we had the joy of celebrating not only one birthday but THREE birthdays! Mark on the team celebrated the big 5-0.  He had the privilege of sharing this day with two twins, a boy and a girl, who turned 2 years old.  The children greeted Mark with notes.  Later, he remarked how he could not think of any other way of spending the day.  It was wonderful to see the twins dressed up.  The team is doing well with health, safety and becoming united so quickly.  We have all seemed to connect and feel comfortable with one another which can be rare when you put a group of 11 people in a situation such as Haiti.  There is no doubt that God’s presence is among us and working within us as well as the children and the hospital staff.
Thank you for your continued prayers.

  1. The photo taken by the kids (little girl, chair and red door) is timeless and incredible, speaks volumes.
    Any chance for a glimpse of the murals? A word from Miss Kate?
    Praying from afar--for joy and love to pour out generously in all you do and say, as you serve the LORD this week! Signed, a somewhat impatient but always loving Mama.
