We are back in America now, has been 10 days now. It has been such a blessing seeing all our friends & family. We sure did miss them while we were in Haiti. We have been busy with some traveling & also some ministry job hunting. We have made it to St. Louis, Columbia, Joplin, Dallas & will be headed to Branson in a few days. So it has been crazy.
Please be keeping us in your prayers as we will have some church interviews this week. Also keep praying as we adjust to being back. Lyndlee is doing great, although has had some trouble adjusting to sleeping at night with all the changes. But we are confident she will be fine with it soon. She sure has loved being with all her family & friends here & acts like she has never been away from them! We had her birthday party celebration last week, scooby doo theme so that was fun! But we also received some sad news regarding her birth mother. We find out she passed away last week from heart failure so please pray for Lyndlee's older sister & family back in Taiwan. Bev from the orphanage did write to tell us they were able to give a Bible to the family, give them pictures of Lyndlee & take pictures for Lyndlee to have. So we are praising God for putting Bev & Ted into their lives & praying they come to know Jesus!
We are doing well, but sure do miss our students. Somedays it feels like we are just on break & will be back soon. Today at Hobby Lobby it really hit me as I was looking at these statues, it was reminding me of our friends in Haiti & I just lost it in the store. I just missed Haiti so much at that moment & am so thankful the Lord let us be there.
God bless you!
