Everyday life

Our family is on our 3rd year in Haiti.  When we first arrived, I wondered if I would EVER feel remotely comfortable in this new country and culture.   Through God’s faithfulness and provision, as well as the many prayers of our church, family, and friends, things that once looked and felt so strange, now seem fairly “normal.”  I would not say, I’m completely comfortable here, nor do I want to be.  But, I’m so thankful for the progress that has been made.

I get a lot of requests from those that have never visited Haiti, to post pictures of our environment.  So, I have made a specific effort in the past 1-2 weeks, to take pictures of my surroundings, some of which have become “normal” for me.   Things that I would once stop and stare at, I have realized that I barely notice.  Enjoy the beauty of God’s creation in southern Haiti, as I show you pictures from our “everyday life.”

(Too bad you can’t get the smells and sounds to go with it!)
