November Update from the Pruitt’s
"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." -1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV
Happy Thanksgiving! We hope that you are enjoying this North American season of autumn leaves, crisp temperatures, and pumpkin spice everything. In Haiti, November feels a little different--temperatures cooling to the glorious 80s and colorful flowers in bloom all around. Of course, no matter what the weather, we are joining in with the American tradition of gratitude.
As a family, we are grateful for restored health, after a period of almost two months when we were fighting off one illness after another. None of the illnesses were very serious in themselves, but the combination of all of them left us dragging. We are all so relieved to be feeling better and getting back into our usual rhythm of life.
We are also grateful that Irene and Grace have had safe travels back to the South Carolina. Irene completed a professional training for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and, as an added bonus, she and Grace get to celebrate Thanksgiving with Robbie's family.
We have a number of prayer concerns that we would like to share with you. Thank you so much for joining us in prayer!
- Haiti is in the middle of presidential elections, and there has been some instability and violence in the course of related demonstrations. Please pray for peace, safety, and justice in the whole process.
- Honestly, the last two months have been especially stressful for us as a family for a number of reasons related to health, security concerns, and work stress. Please pray for balance, wisdom, and restorative rest for us in the coming weeks.
- Robbie is continuing to teach high school Bible classes, and fulfill his other roles at Quisqueya Christian School. Please pray for his students, that they would be open and receptive to the living and transformative Word of God.
Thank you so much for your friendship and prayers. We are also praying for you, that God continues to bless you and your family.
In Christ alone,
Robbie, Irene and Grace
