Cross-post update

Sorry for not blogging. I thought I posted the information below on this blog but just found out that I accidentally posted it on our adoption blog.

 For those of you who don't follow that blog here's the post.  [Short update at the end]

And a few pictures from Anna's games last week.

Late last week we learned of a trip we needed to make and it fit best in our schedule to travel the next day.

So on Saturday we headed out. Anna played on two volleyball teams (15-16 year olds and 17-18 year olds, younger kids can play on the older kids teams, they won one and lost one) in Cap Haitian and then we continued on our trip.

Everyone is doing wonderful and making memories.

Some down time, some scheduled time as we interact with other missionaries as well as have a chance to help by teaching some Haitian staff and neighbors.

Internet is slow. Becca, Global Partner's member care person for missionary children, will be joining us on Thursday.

On  Monday we plan to return home. Depending on an appointment we're trying to set up in Port-au-Prince we will either travel on Wed. or Thursday. [Wed. if we get a Thursday appointment]

The area retreat will be starting Thursday night as we join all the current Wesleyan missionaries living in Haiti as well as 4 new couples/families working on their support to come.

Thank you for your prayers. Will update when we can but may not be until next week.

A bit more update as a few days now have passed. Becca made it without problem. 

We set up the needed appointment in Port for the day after retreat so will be going to the retreat site on Thursday which gives Becca 2.5 days to enjoy Fauche and for us to do laundry and repack for retreat.

Enjoying meeting new friends. Did a couple home visits and spoke to a pre-natal class on Thursday. Tonight I'll be talking to a group of young people about general health issues. 

Monday, most Haitians will be celebrating Haitian Flag Day with celebrations and lots of parades. We will head home after a short morning meeting.
