Tomorrow is the Day

What a great month we have had here at our home in Haiti.  What a busy time it has been!
These last few weeks have consisted of cleaning our classrooms, closing down our homes, graduations, saying lots of goodbyes, packing, etc!
Sonlight Academy's graduation was on Sunday & went so well.  We have gotten very close to the senior class so it was hard to say goodbye to them.  Brennan was asked to speak at the ceremony which was a great honor for him.  Wednesday night was the first graduation for the Bible College & that went great as well!
Yesterday we had class parties in our room, they were so much fun!  It was hard to say goodbye to my students but I know we will be back to visit!  We spent all afternoon packing our classrooms up, covering everything & putting things away.  Then we had a goodbye lunch with all our teacher aides.  Yesterday afternoon we had to say goodbye to our good friend Elose, but we are hoping she can come visit us in December to spend a few weeks with us & to look at possible colleges she wants to attend.  And tonight we have our last staff dinner to say goodbye, like I said earlier, lots of goodbyes.
But tomorrow is the day.  We will start our journey back to the states early morning, hoping to arrive in St. Louis late evening.  Please be praying for us & all the families here as we begin our journeys.  Pray for safe travel & that Lyndlee does well.
We want to say thank you for all that you have done for us while we have been ministering here in Haiti.  What a great, challenging & yet rewarding year it has been for our family.  We are honored to be apart of the Lord's ministry & work here.  We thank for all your support, love, & prayers.  We can't wait to see you soon!
God bless!

Last Month

We can't believe we are in our last month here in Haiti.  We have 18 more days of teaching & being with our students.  Please keep keeping all the students & teachers in your prayers as we are coming close to the end of the school year.  
We wanted to include some photos of the past few weeks.  This past Friday was a sad one as we said goodbye to Amanda & Naiyah.  We are glad they are back in the states now & can get some rest before their next baby comes! Lyndlee sure does miss her Naiyah!  Good thing we will be close to each other over the summer & can get the girls together!  
We have really enjoyed having the senior class over for movie day on Saturdays.  Lyndlee too loves having them over & usually is laughing with them, playing with their cell phones or in their laps!
Lyndlee loves taxi rides so Miss Emily took this picture for us the other day.  Either Lyndlee falls asleep on the ride, or she will point to the ocean, animals, you name it!  She makes the rides really fun.  The last picture is taken at a restaurant at a hotel.  It was great food & fellowship with other teachers.
We thank you for all you do for us & we can't wait to see some of you all soon. God bless.
