Always Changing

It seems like nothing in this country ever goes as planned. God uses Haiti to grow and change people and sometimes the growing pains hurt.
Please, be in prayer for me over the next few days as I learn where God is leading me, Annabel and Espwa Berlancia.

My New Kitchen

A few weeks ago I had an awesome visit from two wonderful friends. Melanie and Emma came to spend 3 weeks with Annabel and I!

We had so much fun visiting and catching up while Annabel got seriously spoiled with all those arms ready and willing to hold her.

I got a little extra sleep while the ladies took turns getting up with Annabel (although she is a great sleeper) and was able to catch up on a lot of things that I had been putting off since she was born.

By far the highlight of the trip was the gift that Melanie and Emma brought along to bless us with.

Before leaving Canada they did some serious fundraising and were able to gather enough to purchase a refrigerator and stove for the house! Up until now I have only had a small cooler to keep food in and have been cooking over charcoal in the back yard or on an electric hot plate.

We were able to buy both the fridge and gas stove in Port and a wonderful friend with a pickup truck delivered them for us!

It is such a treat to have cold water to drink and yummy meals prepared. We even made a SPAM pizza one night, delicious!

I am so thankful for the willingness of these two sweet friends of mine in coming to spend time with Annabel and I and for everyone who donated to make this AMAZING new kitchen possible.
