Miami

THANK YOU MATT FOR SETTING UP HOTEL ROOMS FOR TONIGHT!

UPDATE: OUR DIAPER AND FORMULA SUPPLY IS HOLDING UP WELL AND WE HAVE MORE COMING IN TODAY. WE NEED BABY AND CHILDREN'S CLOTHES FOR OUR KIDS TO WEAR HOME! A LOT OF 9-12 MONTHS SIZES. WE ARE ALSO IN NEED OF SHOES FOR OUR KIDS FOR THE JOURNEY HOME. ANYTHING IN GOOD CONDITION WILL BE VERY HELPFUL! WE ARE BRINGING OUT EMPTY DUFFEL BAGS THAT WE HOPE TO FILL WHILE IN MIAMI AND BRING BACK WITH US. WE WILL ALSO GO SHOPPING, IF ANYONE WANTS TO MAKE A FINANCIAL DONATION TOWARDS SUPPLIES YOU MAY DO SO THROUGH MY PAY-PAL ACCOUNT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PAGE.

We just found out that BRESMA orphanage is sending 50 kids to The States today. They need escorts so Brandon, Moriah and I will be flying with them, spending the night in Miami and then returning to Haiti tomorrow. I probably will not have access to a computer until I get back. I will have my American cell phone with me (218) 731-5060. Right now we are hoping to find a hotel close to the Miami airport that will give us 2 rooms for the night. Though nothing compared to what is happening around us, I have not had a shower since the day before I flew into Haiti, to be able to clean up a little would be nice for all of us.If anyone knows of anything please call my phone, I will answer or get back to you as soon as I land in Miami. Also, we are in need of a few things that we can carry back to GLA with us, diapers and baby formula are most needed! If anyone can meet me in Miami with any of these items please call me tonight and set up a place where we can meet! PRAY that we will have no trouble getting back into Haiti tomorrow. I will be heartbroken if I get stuck and unable to get back to these babies.

God has not forgotten the children left in Haiti. You will get back in. Your voice will not be stopped. Your arms will not stay empty. God is using you mighty in ministry. Bless you Rhyan.

Rhyan! All the best. Safe journey to the USA and back to Haiti. I know how hard it must be for everyone to see the children go, on top of all the devastation. You are right...it is like nothing ever experienced before. Stay strong and know that we are supporting you and praying for you from a distance.

That is such great news! Prayers for a safe flight and return! I will send this info to my friends in Miami!

This is amazing news that they are releasing these babies to go home! I am so happy for them! And bless you all for going with them on their journey!

Prayers for a safe journey!

I gave you everything in my PayPal account (I'm sorry that it was less than $20, but it's all I have).

Maybe enough to buy a pair of shoes.

I also tweeted your request on the twitter prayers feed

http://www.twitter.com/prayers

There's some 1,200 followers there, so maybe someone with deeper pockets will be more generous than I.

I keep you in my prayers,

Michael

I wish I was in Miami- I have clothing in good condition that I wish I could send with you. Perhaps someday there will be a chance for clothing to be sent directly to the orphanage.

And hooray for a shower and comfortable bed and food! I pray it all sustains you and brings you rest and refreshes your mind, body, and spirit!

Hi. I had sent some clothes for Jephthé/Jacques and Jackson around size 1. Feel free to distribute as needed.

Rhyan,

You don't know me, but I know Brandon's family in a round about way and that is how I found your blog. Our church is in the process of sending a semi trailer of food to Haiti and I was wondering how w could help you? Do you know of a way we can get you the supplies that you need? If there is anything specific, my email is akmartin@charter.net. In the mean time, I will commit to lifting you up in prayer.
In Christ Alone,

Aaron Martin

Hi Rhyan and Moriah,
Lori and I are praying for you. What a work you both are doing for the Lord.
The Lord hears your cries to get the orphans adopted.
We are praying that the adoption proceedings are hastened.
We were glad to hear that you accompanied 50 babies to Miami.
Take care and love to you both.
Our love to Brandon also.
Love and prayers, Lori and Lorraine Zentner from Bozeman, MT.
