Hi from Michelle

I just wanted to stop and give you a short update on
what all is going on around here. Since I have been
back we have been in full swing. (Well, Drex and Jo
already were.) We have had non stop groups in which is
cool, because you get to meet so many different

Little Jean Jean turned 1 on Jan. 4th which just
doesn't seem right. I feel like we just got him
yesterday. Rood and Roodly are just amazing. I look at
them daily and am reminded of how special our God
truly is. Roodly is taking like four or five steps
every day and is going to be walking at any moment.
Roodly (in case you don't know was so close to death
when we got him) thinks that church is one big jam
session and you are suppose to sing the whole time.
Little Claire is picking up strength on a daily basis
and can actually climb the stairs by her self ( for
those of you that don't know her story, she was abused
and starved so badly she looked like an infant and is
really 3 1/2 years old). Christela thinks she is as
big as the other kids. She is only 6 months old, but
she is everywhere. I don't think that child has one
ounce of sadness in her, because she has a smile on
her face 24 hours a day.

I could go on and on about all of our kids, but you
probably don't have the time and I don't have the time
to write a book. hee hee

The weather is beautiful here this time of the year. I
wish you all could come and visit. You would fall in
love with everything. O.K. maybe not the huts, the
smells, the raw meat hanging up everywhere, and the
small children you see in need. Other than that you
would love it.
I thank God daily for giving me the opportunity to
serve Him in this way. I know this is where He truly
has put me for now.

Please take care and remember us in your prayer. Here
are a few things to pray about:
*Our children
*Our staff
*Drex and Jo Stuart (the other onsite missionaries)
*the children that need to be here that just have not
found us yet.
*Our other Missionary friends and the wonderful works
they are doing.
* A special little girl named Natelie.

Take care and May God Bless you;

This morning I was watching a children's praise video with my kids and niece and nephews, only to see a promo for Hands & Feet ... we are in the processing of adopting twins from a rescue center in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti and so your ministry really touched my heart. May God use you to rescue and impact lives for eternity!

Wow, the children sound so amazing and precious. I wish I could see them in person and hug them all. Then they would be wondering what this crazy stranger was doing giving them all those hugs, but it would be great. :) So glad you Hands & Feet is there.

I love reading your blogs.
I long for God to use me like He is using you. It warms my heart and reminds me of the call God has placed on my life. Give thanks to God for placing you where He has!
I will be praying for you and those precious children of God!
