I came to the realization this past week that, during this transition, we have been rather quiet. Since you aren’t mind readers, you don’t know what we’ve been going through and working on. And so, I decided a quick breakdown of the past few months and glimpse into our future was in order (I’ll try to keep it short).
Confirmation that we are going to Haiti!
Gary’s contract with Olé ends
Lease on house ends

WE’RE GOING ON TOUR!
TOUR? Yep! A different kind of tour than Gary is used to … Before we head out for our next mission, we want to see YOU! If you, or someone you know would be interested in hosting a group get-together where we could speak about our work, or just meet your friends, please let us know! Below is a tentative schedule (subject to change based on engagements):
8/18 in GA and/or SC
8/19 in SC and/or NC
8/20 – 23 in MD/DC area
8/24 – 25 in NC and/or SC
8/26 – 31 in GA
9/1 – 4 in TN
We are prayerfully returning to Haiti mid-September, so this is our chance to see each other! We are so grateful for each and every call, text, email, dollar, and especially prayer . . . it means the world to us!
