These last two days Simon and I have really been working hard–the naps are over and it’s time to work. I got up Monday morning and had my coffee and did my daily bible study, then started painting. I finished my room and painted the kitchen and two bathrooms. Simon came back from Port about 9 a.m. He started laying tile in my bedroom, and when he finished that he began cleaning windows and screens. We worked until after dark. Simon put on some vegetable soup for us and that was our dinner–we had no problem sleeping.
Tuesday we got up early as usual and had our coffee, devotion and started work again. I painted my bedroom and Simon started grating the tile in three bathrooms. When we finished that, we cut the legs off some of the tables so they would be the right height for the new chairs–before, if you sat at the table, your chest would be about even with the table. Then we finished cleaning all the windows and screens. I never thought I would say it, but I’m ready for a trip to Port to get out of all this work!
Tomorrow the bunk beds arrive, God willing. I spoke to David, and his plan is to be here around 10 a.m. I have a Haitian meal planned for him and his helpers. It will probably take all day to assemble all the beds, but I am really excited. God is so good to us. It really is hard to believe that we have a mission house now, with bathrooms, a kitchen, and beds. God showed me this vision many years ago; now it is a reality. If we would just stay busy doing His work while we are waiting on the Lord, He will provide every time–if we just don’t try to do it ourselves and get ahead of him. His timing is always perfect. I am so, so excited to see what He is going to do with us next. It truly is the greatest adventure I have ever been on. I want to thank everyone for making this all possible.
With the mission house, we can now accommodate over 30 people. The more people God calls here, the more He can show the need that the Haitian people have, and put it on their hearts to help. I can promise you this–if you come to Haiti, it will change your life. It did mine. God bless!
