Bud and I are praising the Lord and for answered prayer. I had to have my gallbladder removed yesterday and because it all went as planned Bud and I are planning to return to Haiti on January 1. We will spend a couple of days in Florida purchasing some needed things for our freezer and home in Haiti. January 3 Bud and I will be back to the work we love.
Although we have loved being with our family, we miss our work in Haiti and the Haitian people as well. We had a special treat this past weekend. Prudence and her husband came to Erie for some speaking engagements at our Church. Prudence works in our clinic. While she was here we received sad news that one of our employees in our clinic (a young man)died suddenly. This is so sad but far too common in Haiti. Another employee who works with Bud also has just recovered from Cholera and some complications. PTL.
Our Heavenly Father is ever present and is always working on our behalf. We have so much to be thankful for this Christmas. We are so looking forward to being with our family. We are also busy making plans for our return to Haiti. God has laid so much on my heart for Starfish Kids. Cindy is taking over much of the office work freeing my time more to work with our schools and the children. In order for Starfish Kids to do all that we feel we are to do for the children of Haiti, I need to visit the schools more often and find way to help our School directors run our schools well. We want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. My freind Prudence told my church. "Please do not be so busy decorating your house, that you forget to decorate your heart with Jesus" God bless you. Jane
