In June, we finally moved into our new home in Simon. We live on the second floor and another missionary family from Germany live on the first floor. We are so thankful for the US Church work teams, some of our own RMI staff, an electrician and plumber who helped us get the house ready for us. Several volunteers helped Joel with the painting. A big thanks to everyone!

Several work teams that have been an invaluable help to Joel and to RMI. Their projects have included building homes and doing projects at our Simon house and at the RMI retreat center at Zanglais.

I've transitioned into responsibilities more in line with my educational and experience background. I'm developing an education program for our staff than has health care, cultural knowledge and awareness, computer and language skills, basic driving and auto maintenance, leadership, and spiritual growth. NO! I'm not teaching all of the modules! I'm also involved in a directing a small research study with the purpose of measuring outcomes of our child sponsorship program, Hope for Kids. Who would believe that I would come to Haiti to do research?

Joel and I are so thankful to be here and to experience daily what God has in store for us. We still are struggling with our Creole, but are much better than nine months ago! At least, we can talk with our Haitian neighbors and staff in Creole, however slow and incorrect it is! Creole is the key to our work here with the Haitian community. Real knowledge of the love of Christ and His saving power is limited even though there is a lot of "church."
