We’re Home!

Here we are at the start of our day on Wednesday. We left Roanoke at 3:45am. A huge thanks to our chauffeur, who got up extra early to take us to the airport!
We made it safely to our home in Cite Lumiere, Wednesday at 9 pm. It was a long day of travel, and we were exhausted, but it was good to be home.

This is a picture of our house from the side/back. We live on the second story, on the right side of the picture. The top story, is the roof, where the kids play and ride ripsticks, in the evening.

Thursday morning, we awoke to a “tap, tap, tap” on our gate at 7:15. (That’s 6:15am, IL time). It was Bos Mario, with a gift of bananas and fresh bread. Later in the morning, Mamize stopped by to welcome us home. She was so thankful that we returned to Haiti, she sang a song of praise and said a prayer of thanksgiving to God.

Thank you for your prayers for safety during our travels back. We are settling in and getting adjusted back to life in Haiti. The heat seems to be one of our biggest challenges for now. Pray our bodies will adjust to our new climate.
Thought you might want to see a picture of the sunset Thursday night.

  2. Thanks for the pictures! Loved the one of your house! Now I can have a better visual of where you live! Miss you guys so much and always keeping you in our prayers back here. The sunset is gorgeous with that palm tree! I could send you a pic of a cornfield?….;)

  3. Thankful that you had safe travels. Prayers said as you make the adjustment and settle again into your life down there. Hugs!

  4. Glad to know that you made it safely home! What a beautiful sunset! You are in our prayers, and we will ask God to help you re-acclimate to the heat.

  5. I’m so thankful God have you such a beautiful sunset after returning home. What a great reminder that He is there with you, will bless you in amazing ways, and will protect and give you all His wisdom in the mission field.

    We’re glad you could enjoy the unusually beautiful IL weather this summer and I hope you will adjust quickly to the warmer climate.

    We have potluck this Fri. with your folks and will be anxious to hear all about your visit!

  6. I always look forward to your blogs. I missed reading them this summer while you were in Roanoke. But I know you had a wonderful visit with friends and family. It seems that you think of Haiti as “home” now. That is a wonderful example of your sincere involvement in your mission there. We, here in Georgia, also pray for you. Wish we could have seen you while you were in Il. Love Ya’……Marna & Carl
