6 months

It’s hard to believe we have been in Haiti for over 6 months! As a family, we sat down together and took some time to reflect back on how our lives have changed over the last year. Everyone shared the positives and the negatives about living in Haiti. We had some really good dialog together, as well as some laughs, and a few tears. All 5 of us testified how God has helped us through different trials since being here, and all of us came to the same conclusion…. we know that Haiti is where God wants our family to be. We want to give God all the glory and praise for this! He has given us peace and contentment, despite being uprooted from living a comfortable, familiar life, in central IL. It is only through Gods strength and grace, that our family could survive this transition and thrive. The benefits to trusting in God, and His plan for our family, has outweighed the cost! Thank you to our family, friends, and church body who support and pray for us. Please continue to pray for our family, as we serve together. It is by no means an easy road for us, but we go forward knowing God will continue to provide for us.
Special hugs from Elijah & Toby!
