a little more on haiti

ok, so i guess it's been kind of a long week. not that it's been bad...just long.
it is hard to explain, but it's so strange to come back from a totally different culture, and try to sort out in your mind everything that you just experienced, while trying to move on with life!! we got back late tuesday night, and had praise team and yags on wednesday! the first night we were in haiti, we stayed at the baptist haiti mission. we got to meet the founders, and it was incredibly inspirational to talk to them. that next morning, aj woke up and said "mommy, there is a really huge bug under my pillow" ya. it was a huge cock roach! ughhhh!!! i killed it and it made a really loud crunchy noise!
we travelled the whole time in a suv, that the four of us (adam, me, aj and ry) sat in the way back! it was tight, and the roads were UNBELIEVABLE. if you can call them "roads". the trip that was supposed to take 7 hours took 12, and let me tell you...that was a very long day!! the boys did great, and each time we stopped we would hand out tracts to everyone! they immediately would start reading them! it was amazing to see. wednesday-monday we stayed in cap haitien at a hotel. the first night i went over to the window and saw something moving on the wall. ya, it was a gecko. go ahead...insert your car insurance joke here - everyone else already has!! haha! i had the teen boys come and catch it and throw it out the window!
we spent time in the market place handing out tracts to THOUSANDS of people. the people were so hungry for it! on the back of the tract was a place they could fill out their names if they had received Christ. we got a huge stack of them back!! it was amazing. we arrived back in the states on tuesday with no problems getting through customs at all. there were a few scares along the way, but it was incredible how much we felt God with us. we KNEW people were praying for us...we could literally feel the prayers. if that makes sense. i could write all night about it, but i will spare you all. thank you for everyone who supported us financially (some of you in an extremely sacrificial and generous way) and prayerfully. i just love serving God. i love taking my boys to see what God is doing all over the world that gives us such a reminder of how HUGE God is.


  1. I am so glad that you guys had an amazing time. I am sure it was tough at times, but very well worth it! I am also glad that you all made it back safely!

  2. How awesome! Thanks for the update; I am so admiring that your boys have already been able to go on a couple of mission trips overseas! I can't wait for Cam to get just a little bit older so we can do that as a family, too!!
    Awesome to hear about the tracts and the reception you all got with using them as tools.
    Such cute pictures...you must be the cutest family ever!!!!!
    I'll pray that you continue re-adjusting back here in the US okay.
    Love ya
