So full, that I was sure we didn't really have time to hike the mountain to visit Gertha's house this afternoon...but I am SO glad we did.
Alongside all the ministry is my dear friend Gertha, who continues to be a grace in our home and lives. Despite so many challenges, I can honestly say I have never seen grouchy-Gertha. I can honestly say that she NEVER complains. What a testimony of Christ-likeness for my daughters, what a gift in my daily life. I could NOT work at Emmaus if she didn't love on my kiddos and help me keep on top of all the laundry and cleaning and hostessing!
I am also incredibly grateful to have had Rachel here these three crazy weeks...what a joy it's been to have some extra hands and time to be loving on my girlies! If she were up for adoption...
I continue to learn so much just living life alongside of our Haitian brothers and sisters...who overcome, who persevere, with joy.
This O. Chambers excerpt yesterday was so powerful, and all I hope to be, in Haiti, in America, in my life...echoing Christ's "come".
