Seven years ago this week Nick and I brought our kids to Haiti for the first time. (He and I had been a few times before and had been working with Joy in Hope (then called Haitian Children's Home), but this was the first time with the whole fam.)
Here are some #TBT pics from that week-- it was quite adventuresome! TS Noel rolled through and totally soaked the Sudest... It was crazy and fun. And it was on that trip when we became convinced that the Lord was calling us to move our family to Haiti.
Here's the travel down...
Josiah and Berline.
Here I was introducing some of the kids to their online sponsors.
Josiah and Elinda.
Our whole family at the Raymond beach-- Nia was 4 years old, Josiah was 5 months old, and Nico was 2 years old. Seems like forever ago.
The day we went to the beach, the babies from the Hands and Feet project were there with Michelle, and Josiah hopped right in their baby pool.
Walking the land with Nico.
Nia slid right into children's church.
Sweaty and happy.
Man, these kids were tiny and cute back then.
Then the rain started.
And it didn't stop for a long time.
It's crazy the ups and downs since then. This journey hasn't always been fun. But it's been good. And I still believe in the call the Lord put on our lives that week 7 years ago.
A big thank you to the supporters who have brought us this far...
I can't wait to see what the next 7 years will bring.
