The 4th of July was full of fireworks, the most hilarious lip sync battle, a freaking hilarious dance party, fresh cut French fries & grilled burgers, & so much laughter with my Haiti family. The 4th of July party in Haiti has easily become one of my favorite traditions. So very thankful for freedom! 7.4.16


Going to sleep tonight really grateful for the thoughtful, kind, intentional, selfless, & FUN group of family & friends the Lord has graciously given me from all over the world. I’m excited & expectant for year 25 & have loved celebrating today with my Haiti family! Thank you all for the birthday wishes & kind words! 7.6.16

I sure love these people. Our Haiti family celebrating Katie & the gift she’s been to this place & this family. Katie, you will be deeply missed here! Friendship is a sweet, sweet gift. 7.15.16


7.16.16 While there are many photos I could post with Katie, I choose this one because it makes me laugh through the tearful “bye for now” that happened at 5am. Katie, you’re a joy & I am forever grateful for your friendship & living this Haiti life together for many years. Keep shining bright, beautiful friend! Can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store for you next.
