A Wedding, A Week of Speaking English, and Coming Home

We just returned from a refreshing one week trip to Oklahoma to be part of Austin’s sister’s wedding.  It was a treat to be able to celebrate with Megan & David, visit with family and friends, get some rest, and enjoy a few extra modern conveniences.  We have so many reasons to be thankful but were especially reminded of the blessing of family and friends around us.  Here’s a few photos from the week…

Flying back into Haiti

Flying back into Haiti

We have been in Haiti for about four months now.  Some days go by slowly but overall time seems to fly by.  We are so glad we got to have some time with family but remain confident that Port-au-Prince is the place God has us for this season.

I have to say that speaking English for a week was a nice break.  Returning to Haiti though, it was surprisingly comforting to begin to hear the familiar sound of Creole being spoken around us as we waited in the airport and boarded the plane.  When we first came in January it just sounded like a foreign language.  Now it is something that sounds familiar, something we can understand, something that makes Haiti start to feel like our “home” for now.  That’s a good feeling.
