I am at the end of another wonderful day. Yesterday, Saturday, a group of 11 girls went shopping. Quite an experience. I actually felt like I was in Mexico, the vendors followed us to the car still trying to make a sale. I did make a few purchases though and I am very pleased with them.
We were taken to an over look that was so beautiful, hard to describe. This is a view of Port-au-Prince with the sea in the upper corner. Beautiful view.
Today we went to church, we were taken to a private home for an English service, next week we get to go to a Haitian Church. We were served breakfast, pate, maybe I will get the recipe and try on you when I get home.
We had a missionary attend church who will be conducting VBS at the Toddler House this week.
Please pray for her and the children who will attend.
Thank you again for your prayer support, I know that is why every thing is going so well. I have not gotten sick, I feel rested and the food has been great, still don't always know what I am eating, but it is good.
Thank you for continuing to pray for me and the people of Haiti.
Until next time

It does my heart good to know that the majority already have "forever families" waiting for them.
I am sorry, but for some reason could not post pictures in this blog. I had some really cute ones, too. I will try again later, if I get a chance so check back.
We took some of the kids on a walk yesterday, they are little troopers, they fared better than I did, all either up hill or down hill. Quite a site to see.
Continue with the prayers and I pray that you have a blessed day.

This is just one of my babies. I will try and post one a day, if possible.
The food has been good, not always sure of what I am eating, but very tasty. Have not gotten sick so far. Pray that does not happen.
Once again and at the risk of your getting tired of hearing this, I appreciate all prayers being offered.
Until next time, God Bless You!

When I arrived it was time for lunch and then I was shown around the orphanage. I had a couple of hours after the tour, so I was able to spend time with 2 of my children.
I have 8 children assigned to me and they are mine for the time that I am here. The first two have been wonderful and totally loveable.
The playroom that we take the children to, is an open air room, overlooking the most beautiful view. Mountains every where.
Oh, the ride from the airport was quite an experience, I will save that for later.
Once again, thank you for your prayers and please continue to pray for the children of GLA.

I want to thank everyone who has offered such love to me and to the orphanage in Haiti in the form of prayers and financial support. God will truly bless each of you.
I would like for specific prayers for safe travels and for good health while out of the country.
Next post, Haiti, YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be serving at GOD'S LITTLEST ANGELS ORPHANAGE while in Haiti. You can view their website at glahaiti.org. They are also featured on the TLC channel's Adoption Stories occasionally.
I continue to ask for your prayer support, both now in my preparations, and while I am out of the country. I know that God's hand is all over this trip, He has sent me so many signs, almost daily. Our God is awesome!!!!!!!!!
As I am writing this, I am listening to Michael W. Smith's "Deep In Love With You". If you have not heard this song, my prayer would be that you make the effort to find and listen to it. How wonderful to serve such a wonderful "Father".
Until my next posting, I pray that God will continue to watch over each of you.

I am creating this blog for anyone interested in following my trip to Haiti. I will be posting occasionally before I actually go and plan to post daily while I am in Haiti. Of course my postings in Haiti will be determined by the availability of electricity.
To answer the question I have received from several people, WHY?. I have for some time in my life felt the leading to, in some way, work in missions. After all, if you would read Matthew 28:19-20, I have been commanded to go. Wow, I am so excited that this opportunity was presented to me and that I actually was receptive to the call. As with Esther, my answer would be"...Yet who know whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14
I would like to ask you, to be in prayer that I will show the love of God to every life I touch while in Haiti.
