It's that time again: time to head to the States for Home Assignment (aka Furlough). Every 2 years we are given 3 months to head back to the States. What?! A three-month vacation you say? Not so fast! Yes, we are excited because we have vacation time planned out during these three months, but most of you know it's much more than that. We'll be visiting supporters, visiting our doctors for biannual check-ups, speaking in various supporting churches, spending quality time with our families (who sacrifice the most because we live in Haiti) and yes, having dedicated vacation time to spend as a family of five.
This past year has been especially exhausting. Both Rob and I have had additional responsibilities placed on us that have stretched us beyond capacity. We feel stretched thin. We'd love an opportunity to share with you this summer how God has been working in our lives, hearts, family and ministry over the past two years. More than ever, we need a break from the daily grind of living and serving in Haiti.
We fly to FL this Wednesday, June 1st, and return to Haiti on Tuesday, August 30th. Here is our schedule. We really hope we have a chance to connect with you if we are in your area!
