The day Rob left for Haiti
Dear Prayer Partners
Thank you so much for the over whelming support I have received. It is just Gods confirmation that this is truly what he wants me to do.
We leave today at 3:15 pm for Ft Lauderdale and stay the night then we flight out to Cap Haitian at 7:00 am. We catch a plane from there into Port-au Prince. I don’t have a time that we will arrive cause missionary flights are just flying back and forth and we hop on one. When we arrive we will not have any communication for a couple of days or so. We do have a house we have rented, it needs a lot of work which we will do for the rent. It’s the picture above. It’s a fixer upper they say I will be living in the second floor HA! HA! The first floor is Ok needs a little work. It has solar electric. We are getting a generator to run the well. We have a guy from Texas coming with us who is bringing a satellite system, he thought it would take a couple days. Lots of unknowns whether we have water or sewer. Please keep all this in your prayers. As we are not there to fix up our house we will be camping out here and our priority is the people in Haiti. We must get temporary housing up for the people as the rainy season is fast approaching. We need to build relationship with the ministries that already exist and help build them and multiply them.
As I write this my first grandson was born at 7 lb 12 oz boy with lots of hair. Sometimes we have to put our life on hold and in some cases miss things that are important to us, to fulfill what is more important, Gods work. This Sat. is my wife’s fiftieth birthday and then there is Valentines’ day.
It is a privilege to do Gods work.
Please keep us in your prayers daily in the weeks to come.
