So it's been a while since we've had a chance to update our blog- the Christmas season seems to be such a busy time of year, no matter how many things you say "no" to. Anyways....I will attempt to give you a brief update on where we stand with getting to the mission field.

Andrew got back from Haiti November 16. He had a great trip and took lots of pictures and video for me to see the new site at Grand Goave. He was able to spend the entire time with Bob (the director of HAF) to get a little better glimpse of their vision for the orphanages. We got a lot of questions answered on this trip. While he was there, Andrew was able to help fix the water filtration system at the orphanage at Jacmel- he's so handy!

Andrew was also able to meet the new couple that has recently move down to work with HAF- the Pierce's. Listen to how AMAZING our God is! We will be spending our first 6 months-1 year in Jacmel with Ken & Diane Pierce focusing most of our attention on learning Creole and the Haitian culture. Ken is an ER physician and Diane is a nurse!! How cool is it that we will have a doctor right on our compound?!?! Our God is so good!

In addition to meeting the Pierce's, there was another amazing God-send. Most of you know that Andrew has a love and passion for flying. When God called us to Haiti, flying wasn't the main focus of the HAF mission, and it was going to be put on the back burner for a little while. It's amazing what happens when you surrender to the Lord your desires and dreams! When Andrew was in Haiti this time, he met a guy who designs water filtration systems and who also helped start Missionary Aviation Fellowship in Haiti. Through talking with him and hearing his vision for Haiti, he said that he is planning on building a runway in Petite Goave (which is only 5 miles away from Grand Goave!) So not only is aviation still in the picture, but God is paving the way and preparing it for us.

Another huge item of praise with our financial support: (1) we have about 30% of our monthly support and (2) $2,000 towards outgoing expenses!!! Praise the Lord! We are SO encouraged by the confirmation that God keeps giving us through the gracious gifts of His people. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

To sum it all up: our God is AMAZING! He is doing extraordinary things and showing Himself to us in ways we've never seen before!! He truly is orchestrating all of the details right before our eyes. Thank you so much for your continued prayers- we know that without your prayer support we would not be where we are today. "I thank my God in all my remembrance of you..." ~Philippians 1:3.
