Matthew 25: 35-40

"I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." -Matthew 25:35-36

"Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." -Matthew 25:37-40

A new day in Haiti

Great news last night: more children were written visas yesterday! Barbara is working non-stop on getting as many children ready to leave as possible and spends most of her days at the American Consulate. What an amazing woman. We have many THANKFUL and RELIEVED friends who have recently found out their children will be coming home soon. Lacey had a better night's sleep and sounded refreshed this morning.

I checked with Delta this afternoon and they said they were having no problem with the flights into Haiti. We were really wondering what was going on because when Brenna checked into flights about 11:00 am on Friday, there were none available until the 24th. I had just booked Jim's that same morning at 2:30 am and there were several seats available. So I was worried the flights had been canceled, but when I talked to Delta today they said, "No, the planes are completely booked into Port au Prince until the 24th." Brenna will be arriving at the village on the 25th.

Lacey sent a few new pics yesterday. The nannies and children are still sleeping outside. Lacey's room seemed safe, so she moved back in with the children in her care.


  1. That is so wonderful.... So glad children are getting visas so quickly. Barb must be exhausted! What an amazing woman! God has given her great strength to keep going and working non-stop for HIM!

  2. Wonderful news! We continue to pray for you here in NJ. Our MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group will be collecting money for your village this Thursday. I know every little bit will help.
