My Second Trip to Haiti
August 6-10, 2010
(make sure you check out the new slideshow on the sidebar)

Well as some of you may know I made another excursion to
This one was extra special as I brought our completed dossier and final
payment with me.
It was a wonderful moment to hand it off!!!

My time at the orphanage was wonderful. God really blessed us with small comforts like not making it too hot and allowing the power to be on
more often than not --which meant that the ceiling fans were running!!!! It was cooler than the last time we visited--only a heat index of 107-112 with a nice breeze.

Wisler was so excited to see me. He ran out of the orphanage and up to me with a huge grin. He immediately hugged me and took my hand--"mum" and tugged me along to our room.
We spent some wonderful time playing cards (I learned a new card game), playing memory match super heroes, coloring, singing and just snuggling. It was an incredible time together.

We are praying for a miracle--that Wisler will join us for Christmas. Please join us as we pray for this. We were told it could take 6 months to two years BUT we serve a God who is bigger than any He can do it!


  1. Everytime I read your blog I cry! What an amazing journey you are on. I will be praying for a by-Christmas arrival!!

  2. Praying with you and hoping for Christmas.

    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul
    And sings the tune
    Without the words
    And never stops, at all.
    (Emily Dickinson)

    Here's to hoping!
