We're Back On the Blog

We are so way past due for an update on this blog! So much has happened since the last post we made on January 17. Unbelievably, it has been almost 6 months since the catastrophic earthquake hit Haiti, followed by numerous aftershocks. Sometimes it all seems like a dream, but we keep waking up each day to the reality of it all. So much has changed in so many lives. So much has changed for us. For several months I (Debbie) had been praying about the situation with HFHC and asking God's direction. I knew what He was telling me, but it was such a difficult decision to have to make. I love these kids so much! I couldn't imagine not being with them and Jean Baptiste, Sonia & Jean. But God allowed several incidences to occur that really confirmed to me that I needed to heed His leading. So in early May I resigned from HFHC. I just completed my time with HFHC on June 30. Wednesday was a bitter-sweet final day with them. But as soon as I had made the decision to resign I had the peace I had been seeking over the decision. This does not mean that it has been an emotionally easy think to walk through - on the contrary! The enemy is at work - and I have to constantly remember that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of evil and powers of darkness. But God is greater and He is making His paths for us a little clearer each day. We have been blessed in so many ways - with loyal friends and neighbors and new friends. God has sent encouragement and confirmation in so many unique ways. He never ceases to amaze! It is hard to know where to start in updating....we'll have to add a little at a time so as not to bore and tire our readers! More later....
