In the Summer of 2010 I was one of many lucky people who had the opportunity to take a short trip to Haiti. I fell almost instantly in love and just can't keep myself away. I've spent about 11 months in Haiti since the first time I went two and a half years ago and my time there isn't over. I'm exploring my options on where to take my life from here but it WILL include Haiti in one form or another. This is where I record stories and thoughts about my experiences.

Big Changes

I just got back from taking Katie to the airport. She woke up this morning with bad cramps and they didn't let up the whole day. At around 2 o'clock she decided she wanted to fly home in case she needed medical attention. She was worried it was her appendix. We frantically found a ride for her and switched her flight to 5:15 this evening. I went with her to the airport and she was feeling a little better. Please pray for her that it's nothing too serious. She probably won't be returning until after Christmas.

I'm so worried because not only will I be a "single mother" for the two months she's gone, I also have an additional 3 students that used to belong to her. Sue is going to have to help me out a lot and I feel bad. Please pray for me as well that I have the strength to get everything done each day and still be cheerful.

On to less depressing news, I am happy to report that we're figuring out ways to save money. A few days ago Katie looked online at how to make homemade baby wipes with paper towels and baby shampoo. They're working out really well so far and are A LOT less expensive (one box of 80 baby wipes here costs 8 dollars!). I am also happy to report that my school kids took some tests the other day and made 100% on two of the tests! I was very excited.

Prayer requests:
- That the boys start sleeping better at night. Last night Jackson got up every hour because of gas pains.
- That I have patience
-That Katie feels better and that her pain is not too serious
-That the school kids keep up their hard work!
-That I don't get overwhelmed and discouraged

Mesi!
