Beautiful Haiti

We have been so busy getting our house set up, getting our classrooms ready, working on lessons plans that today we decided to take a little break.  So our friends Amanda, Brice & Naiyah took us to the beach to swim.  Both Lyndlee & Naiyah loved it & it was so sweet to watch them both.  The water was so beautiful, I got to take some really beautiful pictures & video which we still hope to share as soon as the generator gets fixed here.  Please still pray about that, we are down to one & it keeps Roger & John so busy.  
We start school on Wednesday, we are so looking forward to meeting our students.  Brennan has started teaching at the college & loves it!  Lyndlee is doing great, she loves her little friend Naiyah so much & says her name, they like to hold hands & walk together too!  
There are lots of dogs here so we always have to wave, say hi, & say dog although she calls them gogs.  She is so friendly when we are walking around, just waves & waves at everyone we pass! 
We have met more people & more students which has been great.  My teacher aides are teaching me Creole everyday, although they laugh a lot at me trying to say things, they are sweethearts.
All is well with us, the Lord continues to bless us.  We love you all & miss you!

We made it safely to Haiti.  All is well, Lyndlee did great traveling, what a trooper she is.
We are very limited on internet usage right now so we will give a better update later & hope to post pictures.
Just wanted to let everyone know we made it here.  Thanks for all the prayers & support.
We love & miss you all!

Only Days Away.......

I can't believe that in only 3 days, we will be heading out for Haiti.  We are so excited, ready, nervous, scared, & sad.  There are too many different emotions all at once to try to explain what we feel.  We are so ready to get there, to meet all the wonderful people we will be working alongside, to meet all the wonderful people of Haiti.  We can't wait to meet our students & their families, to see where we will be living for the next 2 years.  We can't wait to start unpacking & stop living out of our suitcases!  We can't wait to start working & just let the Lord use us for His ministry there.  We know we are going to teach in Haiti but also know we will be the ones learning everyday!  We are ready to learn & to soak up all the Lord wants to teach us. 
The goodbyes have been hard, so hard but we know the Lord is right alongside us every moment of this journey.  We rejoice in the Lord & all that He has blessed us with.  He has given us so many things, so many blessings, so many wonderful friends & family that have been such a great encouragement to us.  We know this move will be hard for everyone involved so we just continue to ask for prayers, for wisdom & strength from the Lord.
We have had a great last 3 weeks, visiting with friends & family.  I wanted to include some photos from our time.  Probably the next time we write will be from Haiti, from our new home! I am hoping to be able to upload videos/photos to show everyone where we will be living! Thanks again.  We love you all!
For Him,
Janna, Brennan & Lyndlee Jya-Ying
