I haven’t posted in a while because we have been busy cleaning my sister’s home where we have been living this summer, plus gathering all our worldly goods collected here in the States and putting them in her garage. Why? Because, after 35 years of waiting, we have finally found a home. Today is moving day and our long-awaited quest for a nest has come to an end. We are settling here in Jacksonville, NC, and want to thank all those at Treasure Realty who helped find the perfect home for us. We also thank all of you who have prayed for us through the years that we would finally have a base of operation stateside, not to mention a place for our family to be able to come together for a time of rest and recuperation.
We had no idea when we left our trailer and vehicle in 1983 and took off for Haiti with two trunks and two suitcases, that it would take all these years to find our own home stateside. We have watched so many folks, even former students, grow up, get married, and purchase a home while we continued to pray for our own. Well, it’s finally happened!
This does not mean we are retiring from the work of the ministry. In fact, we will be returning to Haiti shortly and this year will be our busiest ever. But, the next time we return, it will be to our own home. Our desire is now fulfilled.
