Photos from Our Trip Home to Bombarde

As we left Port au Prince, we were encouraged to see the mountains so green. Obviously, rain had fallen while we were in the states.

New house, anyone??
However, as we drove north, things looked drier and drier.
Northwest Haiti is parched.

We're Home!

We arrived in Bombardopolis a week ago tonight, and it's been a very busy week. We've been on the run pretty much since we arrived. Rich has been fixing this and that; keeping a close eye on the water situation--it's dry here, although we did have a little rain shower yesterday morning; making his first ambulance run....

We're getting settled in at the house, too. It's been interesting--nearly every day, we go down to the widow's home, where our belongings were stored (in no particular order) before we left, and rummage about to find needed or wanted items. We're living in the main mission house (Steve and Faith's house) for the time being. The gravel and sand to make blocks for our house was delivered over the last couple of days.

We're grateful for the help of the national mission staff in helping us to get oriented and started with the work God has for us here. Linda Blankenship is a great blessing to us, as well.

The guys got our satellite system re-installed yesterday, so I'll try to post some pics soon.

We also want to say a big "thank you" to all of you who welcomed, hosted, transported, prayed for, fed or otherwise helped us while we were home in the States this summer. It was great to see so many friends and brothers and sisters in the Lord. We thank God for you, and for your faithful support and prayers for us. We truly are all "laborers together".
