It's Day One of the Rest of Your Life

From our first meeting on July 17, 2013 . . .

To the way God providentially led in 2014 . . . 

To the big changes in 2015 and 2016 . . .


Until today . . .
God has been faithful and true in the lives of the precious children we have come to love with the deepest parts of our hearts.  It is with gratefulness to Him that make this announcement.

Sunday evening, the "director" of Home for Orphans exited the property for the last time with his family.  He will not be returning.  We have prayed for this day for nearly a year, and in His perfect timing, God made it so.   The children are now solely under the care of Haiti Awake, and we will no longer refer to their home as an "orphanage."   Instead, it is the Children's Home.

We are in the process of establishing a routine for the children and furnishing their home adequately . . . things we were unable to do with our limited influence in the past.  Please pray for the children to feel safe, loved, and valued during this transition.  Pray for us at Haiti Awake to have much wisdom and discernment as we take on this new, enormous responsibility.
 

 First morning in our care . . .   Rise and shine.  It's time to brush your teeth.

First morning in our care . . . 

Rise and shine.  It's time to brush your teeth.

Yesterday in honor of MLK Day, we asked the children "What is your dream?"  With God's help, it is our desire to help them achieve their dreams, their goals.  Won't you be part of what God is doing in their lives?
 

This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
— Psalm 118:23
