Christmas Update

It has been far too long since I posted an update here. Please accept my sincerest apologies! There are not good excuses.
This past year has been full of surprises for me. I thought that I would have surely returned to Haiti by now. I thought I would have helped lead a short term missions team there through A Child’s Hope. I thought I would have finished raising the money for Hope Hill. I thought ACH would have broken ground for their academy already.
But I am so thankful to serve a God who is omniscient (all knowing.) His plan is always better than mine. My understanding is finite!
So what is happening in 2014? I continue to raise funds for A Child’s Hope. So far, $25,000 out of $70,000 has been raised. We’re only $10,000 away from the halfway mark! Even though the fundraising has gone slower than I expected, God has continued to provide.
I also hope to return to Haiti this summer, if God keeps the doors open. He so clearly closed the doors this past year. But I trust that He has burdened my heart for a reason, and I am willing to follow after Him wherever that leads. I am praying that He leads me back to Haiti sometime this year. J
A Child’s Hope continues to press on in their fundraising efforts. The money raised for Hope Hill is ultimately going towards their effort in Haiti, because we are working together for the same goal. ACH is planning their 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala in Houston, TX for April 4th. If you are interested in attending, you can visit their website and purchase tickets here.
Thank you all for your continued prayers for this initiative! I cannot wait to see how God works in 2014.
