Coming Quick

It's hard to believe Faith is 1 month old already! Where has the time gone? As we were looking at our calendar the other day, we realized that our days are filling up quick between now and the end of March. Just to give you a brief synopsis of our schedule: we are leaving tonight and driving up to NY for the weekend. We have the opportunity to share at the church I grew up in, as well as the missions committee at my home church in NY. After that, Andrew is planning on going down to Haiti for a few days in the beginning of March. Then we've got a few weeks back in SC before we head up to NC for a language acquisition class from March 14-25. It is not specific to Creole, but it is designed to help prepare us to learn a second language. Our plan is to be mostly packed up and ready to go shortly after that. We are also planning on having a commissioning service and going away party on March 27th at Northside Baptist Church (SC) for those who are in town and would like to come. We'll start at 5pm in the sanctuary and have a reception following in the fellowship hall.

Prayer & Praises:
1. We just got back from a great visit with some good friends and supporters in French Camp, Mississippi. We also were able to get some ideas for the children's village at Hands & Feet during our stay at a dorm house.
2. We are at 70% of our monthly support and we've got $14,000 for initial outgoing expenses (which is more than enough)! Praise the LORD!
3. Faith is growing like crazy and continues to stay healthy. I'm not sure how much she weighs now, but her cheeks and little belly are filling out! (We had to loosen her car seat straps the other day.) She is an excellent baby and doesn't fuss a whole lot.
1. Please pray for last minute details as we prepare to move. Pray that God would bring us a renter for our house in Lexington quickly. Also, pray that we would be able to find a truck to ship down to Haiti with some of our furniture in it. (Hands and Feet is looking at either getting a deuce and a half or a box truck.) Please pray for wisdom as we try to pack and figure out what we'll need down in Haiti.
2. Pray for our language class coming up the middle of March. Pray that we would be able to stay focused and learn what God has for us in preparing to learn a new language.
3. Pray for the children at Hands and Feet. God continues to bless us with more children. There are now 5 babies at the Jacmel site :-) Pray that God would continue to bring more staff to be able to care for and minister to all these children.
