Fall 2015.

Fall in Haiti is one of my favorite seasons. It’s filled with a bit of a slower pace, THANKSGIVING, & many other great things.

Enjoy some photos from this month! (captions below)

Constant & I matched one morning. When she saw, she said “we have to take a photo!”

Reuben (Tex) went back to the states after serving at MOH for close to three years. Above is our staff praying over him before he left. Reuben, you sure are loved!

This photo is of Marie France (our Guesthouse Manager) & her husband Bincent (a MOH driver) getting a final sonogram before their baby is born. This was also their first time to hear the baby’s heartbeat! They were told the entire pregnancy that the baby is a little boy, but this sonogram showed that it’s a little girl! The other really cool part of this story is that the sonogram technician, Kevin, is a friend of mind from my home church in Texas. It was really neat to get to watch worlds collide here in Haiti. On Friday, Nov. 20, Marie France had her beautiful baby girl “Benchelle”! Mama & baby are happy & healthy. Below is sweet Benchelle.

We had a huge celebration service the Sunday before Thanksgiving with close to 200 guests that were serving with us for the week. It was incredible to see how many people gave up their traditions & selflessly served!

I’m so proud of these 2 guys! Jean Marc (left) & Guetchine (right) shared their stories at the celebrations service & did a great job! It’s been encouraging to watch them grow as leaders, speakers, & advocates for the people of Haiti. They have experienced life transformation & desire the same for others!

The beautiful kitchen ladies that prepared a Turkey & mashed potato dinner for all of our guests! They received a standing ovation – the people were so grateful for their hard work.

Dreary overcast days are rare here…& I LOVE them.

Happy Fall, friends!
