Tropical Storm Erica

We just wanted to update you that everyone is safe and sound after the storm.

Haiti experienced some flooding, but by God’s grace most people made it through the storm very safely.

We had some damage to the home. We lost the canopy, our antenna, and had to clean up a bit. But, we were very blessed to have little problems!

We ended up having a Taco Night before the storm came.

Here are a few photos…

The Rapp Family Visit

We were blessed to have the Rapp family visit us this summer.

Here is a little recap of the trip in their words…

“On our fourth trip to Haiti, our family stayed at HCM for the first time. We were greeted with much hospitality and felt like part of a family the 10 days we were there. From building relationships with Haitians and Americans, helping out in the hospital, fixing houses and other odds and ends, to helping prepare food, the Rapp family was imensely blessed with the opportunity to be a part of HCM.

While we were there, we planned and taught a Vacation Bible School, where each day there were a different number of sweet Haitian kids, ranging from 150-230 children per day. Even in the chaos, it was a blessing and truly an amazing experience. We were greatly blessed by the staff at HCM, their willing hearts to serve, and their patience in times when there were up to 50 people at the mission.

Last but not least, our family loved visiting the Wholehearted Orphanage, and each of the children there now have a special place in our hearts. We look forward to coming back to Hait, and we look foward to seeing how God uses these ministries!

Field Trip to the Baptist Mission

We took a little trip to the mountains to visit the Baptist Mission. The children enjoyed learning about Haiti’s history in the museum they have there.

And of course, we stopped to get a snack and some ice cream!

Learning to play baseball

Coach Dave and his sons DJ and Josh are big baseball fans (and play themselves as well).

They took the afternoon to teach the children the game. It made for a lot of laughs and a few surprises (David hit several homers! What a swing!)

Here are a few pictures!

Summer Fun at the Lake

It’s been very hot in Haiti, as you can imagine!

So, we decided to take a morning trip and cool off in the lake.

Our friends Luke, Jenny and their family came along (and brought squirt guns). 🙂

We’ve hit water!

How exciting this well will be… not only for our orphanage and future, but for the entire community! We can’t wait until the day we can begin sharing this with others!
