THAT is the web address of our new Emmaus Biblical Seminary website, just launched today! Check it out to see photos of our students and fellow staff, learn more about the school, see updated prayer requests and praises, and to know more of what life and ministry is like here for Matt and I!
We had a DIVINE weekend with our friends from Port-au-Prince...full of a lot of good conversations and laughter. We are SO thankful that they were able to come and that we were able to take a weekend OFF to play games, catch up, and eat good food! They lavishly spoiled us, bringing us foods we haven't had since returning to Haiti: sour cream, cream cheese, lunch meat, sliced cheese, yogurt, Cool Whip, bacon...AH! We feel rich, having such things in the fridge! No one is happier than Lily, who has been hungry for dairy and for the sour cream and onion chips they brought :)
We spent the weekend with them out at the new Seminary site with our mutual friends. This is a photo of the site taken this weekend. A team is here tiling right now, and we just cannot believe how the building project is coming along. It is a beautiful thing to stand in the middle of that campus, think of all of the future training and ministry that will take place there, and look at the beautiful classrooms and dorms...We're so thankful for this place that has been set apart for pastoral training in Haiti!
This is Matt's final week in Haiti before he leaves on Sunday for Mississippi to complete his two weeks of mandatory "in-classroom" time at Wesley Biblical Seminary. He is thrilled about the idea of catching some Autumn, something he really missed last year, but we're not sure how Autumn-y Mississippi will be this time of year! We'll see!
I am staying here to continue teaching and marketing, but my dad will be joining me to help out while Matt is gone, and to start working on the baby's room...can't WAIT to have him!
Thank you, Greg and Cathie!!!
