I had a wonderful time in Haiti. It was the first time I had visited alone and the first time I had ever visited and stayed at a hotel in Port-Au-Prince. It was extremely nice to have all those amenities - running HOT and COLD water. The hotel had electricity all day long with air conditioners. It was amazingly comfortable. This trip I was able to get out several times. We went to the beach one day, the baptist mission up in the mountains, we went to the market and out to eat at Epidor (which is a Haitian style Mcdonald's). I'm posting several of the pictures of the trip and some of the places we went.
Schella is doing good! Her health has plateaued and they are reducing some of her medications. We had a wonderful time together. I was so grateful to spend this time with her and miss her tremendously now that I am home. I hope that soon we will be together again.
I felt very safe in the hotel we stayed at - Hotel Villa Therese. The owner, Alix was very gracious and we were able to have a live band come and sing to us one night. It was wonderful! This trip was probably the most "fun" and "entertaining" I've ever had in Haiti. I'm so grateful for experiencing the country in this way.
Please keep praying for Schella, for her health and her emotions as she continues to wait for us to bring her home. Sometimes it is difficult for her to wait for this long process. Please continue to pray for the workers, the directors (Chris & Hal) and the kids that are waiting for adoptive homes. Thank you for thinking of us and the people in Haiti!

Here's what's new with us... My parents have just arrived to stay in Arizona for a few months. So, we regularly get to see them. Randy and I are looking forward to an evening out, just the two of us and Grandma and Grandpa are going to watch the kids! We have basketball practices three times a week. On weekends, the boys play basketball and sometimes Clayson has a baseball tournament. As you can see, sports activities is where we spend our free time. We have enjoyed a new projector for Christmas - thanks to my brother, Brent and Randy's grandparents (Wes & Betty). We get to watch movies on the wall - big screen! It's lots of fun.
Other than that, our daily life is school, pickups for practices, homework, dinner and then to bed. We are looking forward to winning the school's raffle for a new car (pray for us, the drawing is on February 14th) - since our last car died, we've been commuting around with just one car. We are again so thankful that the Lord gave me a job from home, otherwise this would be an even more trying endeavor to get everyone where they need to go.
I've put a few posts of the boys playing sports. Some videos of James and Clayson. I will try to put a video of Guymael's basketball game on soon. His team is a joy to watch.
Love and blessings to all our friends and family. We love you!

The kids enjoying chapel at HIS Home. This was one of those moments we will remember forever. Watching their joy in singing was so much fun to experience first hand! If you are interested in going to Haiti on a mission trip, just let us know. We are making plans to go in October of 2009 to work in sports missions. Of course, we'd also visit the orphanage in Port Au Prince. Let us know if you are eager to hear more about our progress on this endeavor!

The boys are now out of school and enjoying everyday at home. Sometimes they get bored because I won't let them watch much television. We have plenty of kids over to the house and that keeps them busy.
Randy is starting a basketball camp at The Grove (our church) in a few weeks, so he is organizing that effort. I'm working from home and just hanging out with the kids during the day. I'm looking forward to my parents visiting on Monday, the 9th. It will be nice to have family in town again!
For all our friends and family... keep in touch! We miss you!
