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 Flies!

Hard to believe, but today is our last full day here. Tomorrow is mostly a
travel day. Been having a great time with the kids and other families. I have not been sleeping well and have been sick, but last night I slept GREAT. Praise the Lord for a good night's sleep. It took me a moment, when I first opened my eyes, and it was getting light outside to realize "I slept!"

It is a beautiful cool day here today. I didn't know it cooled down here, but
it feels great.

Today, I'm going to hang out at the guest house with the boys, pretty much all day. There is a tour going on-around Port au Prince, but I want to spend every minute I can with the boys, and so, I'm staying here.

The shoe boxes were HUGE hit, you can read a bit about it at 2500 pounds of stuff donated and flown to Haiti and distributed to children. Amazing what God's people can do when we pull together. So simple, Love God, Love people.

God is great.


  1. Pictures, pictures...we want pictures!!! (When you get home of course!)
    Enjoy your time with your boys. They are so sweet.
    Give Bethany kisses for me. I miss her!!!

  2. Kiss your sons for us and tell that they have a friend named Eli in America who would to meet them. Merry Christmas my dear friend!

  3. Hope you made it home safely and wish we could have officially met you. I know I saw you at church.

  4. Thanks everyone! Trust me, pictures are coming. Mrs. Livesay, I would have LOVED to meet you too. I snuck out a little more than halfway thru the service with 2 adorable little boys in search of the toilette.

    I'll be back, and we can coordinate better on my next trip. I did get to go to Heartline, that was neat.


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.

Thanks again!
