Greetings from Haiti. Anna, Luke, Abigail and I are getting settled in nicely. We have a two bedroom apartment with a beautiful porch. We are still unpacking our eight check bags, yes eight. We also have our own bathroom and almost all day power. Praise God for all the batteries.

I miscounted our luggage on Monday so I had to go back to Port au Prince yesterday. It takes about an hour and half to get to PAP so when you go, you make a zillion stops for this and that. It was a good experience and education. We saw many families in tents. Many is an understatement. I wondered to myself, how could I (we) make a difference? One by one? I believe God spoke to me and said no, plant churches, biblical churches that will evangelize there areas, disciple them, and plant more. I believe that is the biblical model. The vastness of those in need of whatever can be overwhelming.

Today we worked in our room more trying to get situated and develop a good routine. We are encouraged that Luke is making friends. It is an answered prayer. He plays with his new friends like they have known each other a while.

Thank you for your prayers. Hopefully as we are here longer we will get better at communicating with all of you all. We love you!
