You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Time Warp!

Well, this is our last evening in Haiti. Wow. Hard to believe. Seems like we just got here, and seems like we have always been here. Both are true at the same time....strange.

Today was the saddest day-saying good bye to the children at Three Angels. There were tears all around. We are blessed to have an adoptive mom and a young adult adoptive sibling as part of our group. They added an extra depth to our group. Also, 3 and sometimes 4 of the children that are being adopted into these two families were with us at the guest house. Very cool.

We did get to spend most of the day at Three Angels, which was nice. That is my favorite part of this trip. We gave the nannies some of our things-clothing, shoes, toiletries, etc. It was fun to watch-kinda like Christmas. They were so excited. And generous with each other-they did not fight over stuff but shared it very willingly and openly. Truly a lesson in receiving.

It is hotter and more humid today-everything was more challenging due to the weather. Please say a prayer for our chaperone from Three Angels-Cara, she is not feeling well, probably dehydrated. We need to lift her up as we are all getting onto an airplane in the morning. No fun to travel when you're not feeling well. I pray that she will wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and healthy-better than ever.

I have so much more I want to say, but it will have to wait. I'm still having trouble finding words to describe all of this. It's been an incredible experience, in so many ways. God is great.
