A farewell party

Last Sunday, our friends the Wray’s, hosted a farewell gathering for our family, out at their camp!  Our missionary family was invited, and there was a great turn out!  It was an afternoon full of fun and fellowship!  fullsizeoutput_1609

After supper, we had a time of sharing together.  Those who wanted, shared memories of our time together in Haiti.  It was good to remember back over the past 4 yrs, and it touched our hearts.

We are so thankful for the friendships we have made during our time in Haiti.  These relationships were a provision and blessing from the Lord, that we weren’t necessarily expecting.  These people have not only become our friends, but our family as well!  It is hard to say good-bye, but we look forward to seeing many of them again!

On another note, the first “member” of our family arrived safely back in Roanoke this weekend!  Scott and Chloe drove our dog Izzy into Port au Prince on Friday!

Once in Port, she boarded the Agape Flights plane, and flew 4.5 hours, with the Agape crew to Florida!  After arriving in Florida, she was picked up by our good friend Heather, who drove her back to Roanoke!  She now resides at my parent’s home, until we arrive mid April!

We are all so thankful that God provided a way for Izzy to return to Roanoke, so we didn’t have to leave her behind in Haiti!  Thanks to Agape Flights, Grandma Luginbuhl, H, and mom and dad!!  5059483136_IMG_3225

For an update on our house…… It has a fresh coat of paint, new floor coverings, and new electrical accessories!  Thank you to all who are helping get it ready for our return!

  1. Read your post with tears, imagining how hard the farewells must be but rejoicing in the confidence that God watches between us until we meet again – either in this life or in eternity!

    So excited that Izzy has arrived safely in Roanoke & will be waiting to welcome you back. Praying she & Lucy will adjust quickly & become good friends!

    Love you & covering you in prayers through your travels back to Roanoke!
