Thank you and you and you…

Saying ‘Thank you’ never seems to convey enough appreciation or gratitude. Those same words, all too often, are found too near phrases like ‘…and what can I get you to drink with that?’ or are received in exchange for your hard-earned money spent on things like a replacement refrigerator or new tires.

When we say ‘Thank you’, it’s as much for your unfailing prayers as it is for your financial support. It’s still your hard-earned-money, but here it takes the form of a digital binocular microscope for our science classes, or a cart to hold the projector, or the projector itself, or crayons, paper, pencils, sharpeners, books, medicine, food, clothing, prenatal vitamins, a photocopier and the list goes on and on.

When Paul says

I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy  because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,  being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

I know how he felt. I really do. Your giving makes stuff happen here, whether you support our family or sponsor a Sonlight student. Thank you for expressing your faith through prayer and giving.


Being able to help people here in Haiti in small ways or big ways is a blessing. We feel blessed to be here doing it. We’re blessed that you make it possible.

With love and confidence.
