We have now been back in Haiti for a little over a week. But to help you understand how exciting life is, I’m going to have to backtrack to right before we visited the states six weeks ago.
By the end of November we started to wonder if Abby could be pregnant, but every test we took in Haiti came back negative. I guess you get what you pay for as we were able to purchase five tests for a dollar. 🙂 The day after we got back to the states we took another pregnancy test and learned that we were five weeks pregnant!
So fast forward six weeks, to our return to Haiti. We are back to coordinating trips that come to Haiti with Global Orphan Project, and we are back to playing with Haitian kids. We absolutely love the work that the Lord has allowed us to do. Its not easy, but its good!
Our plan is to be here until April 2nd, at which point we’ll head back to the states for Abby’s third trimester. We will be 13 weeks along tomorrow, and the baby is due July 19th. We have no idea where we’ll live, where we’ll work, or what we’ll do. But we are very sure of the fact that God will provide for us and our future child!
We are so excited to be back in Haiti hosting trips at the Jumecourt Inn. We get to meet so many cool people from churches all across the country. It’s great to learn from them and swap stories of why we came to Haiti and what orphan care means to us.
We appreciate your prayers in the coming months for the following:
-That we’d be able to minister effectively to all the teams that visit.
-For our baby’s health and safety.
-That we’d be able to clearly discern God’s plans for us and our next steps once we return to the states in April.
Thank you guys so much for your prayers and support!
