End of July Snapshot

We wanted to send out a quick to let people know what we are up
to lately.  We had a great time with family and friends back in the
States the past two weeks.

Our flight back home on Monday the 25th through JFK Was pretty
interesting. We had a bomb scare which caused us to almost miss our
flight, but God is so good!  After an hour and a half of waiting
outside, they finally let us back in- what a mad house!!!  They
finally got us up to the counter 5 min before our flight was supposed
to take off!!  We were expecting them to put us on a different flight,
but he didn't.  We still had to get through a long line of security
all in 5 minutes.  The first ladies we talked to told us to go wait in
the long line. Then one of the ladies checking boarding passes took us
up to the front of the security line.  Wow- thank you Lord!!!  Then
Faith and I ran up to the gate, letting Andrew get all the bags, and
the gate agent (who was Haitian) acted like we were long lost friends.
 She just took Faith in her arms and started talking to her like they
were best friends.  Then she realized that our seats were not
together, so she, still holding Faith, got on the plane and helped us
get seats together.  What a God orchestrated time at JFK!!! Thank you
so much for your prayers- we made it back to Grand Goave safely and
only a few hours later than expected.

We got back to our house and found so much progress!!!  We were blown
away at all that had been done while we were gone.  We currently have a
group of 8 here from Wisconsin.  They have been a tremendous help as
well!!!  Just to give you a quick on the construction, the
houses are all painted, storm flaps are up on the boys and girls
dorms, all the boys bunk beds are made, the toilets are in and
plumbed, the water tower is built, the kitchen house/dining area is
framed and we're working on the roof for it today!!! So lots of
progress being made- praise the Lord!!
