Dear Family and Friends,
Thank you so much for your continued friendship, prayers and support!
It has been an eventful and full summer with family and friends. It is always a challenge for us to be able to see everyone while we are here. As always, our time in the US began to run out way before we were able to see everyone and do all we had hoped. Robbie took one of his last classes toward his Masters of Arts in Theology degree and went to the International Institute of Christian Educators Conference at Columbia International University. Irene also pursued continuing education in counseling and is researching and planning an online counseling practice.
It has been a challenging and a blessed summer. We have had the blessing to be here with family and friends who have lost loved ones. Two of our dear family members died this summer, our brother-in-law’s brother, John, and Robbie’s uncle, Rhett, and two of our friends from Virginia. It has been bitter sweet; bitter, in that we grieve these losses with family and friends; sweet, in that we celebrate the resurrection life of our Lord Jesus. The following verse has carried us through: "May the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace as we trust in him, so that we may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)
As we plan to return for another school year in Haiti, Robbie will continue teaching Bible, while also formalizing his role as Director of Professional Development and continuing his role as the school’s Social Media Director. Irene will continue to focus on her primary ministry, which is her family. She also hopes to continue to provide counseling one or two mornings a week and is working on starting an online counseling practice as well.
Partnering with us Financially
If you were not already partnered with us financially, would you consider beginning to support our work by giving a monthly financial contribution? We need to raise an additional $1,000 per month, above our current commitments, to cover our budgeted expenses for next school year. If 10 people were to commit to $100. per month, or if 20 people were to commit to $50. a month, we would reach our goal.
We are partnered with Resourcing Christian Education International (RCE) in order to raise the funds we need to continue our ministry at Quisqueya Christian School. All donations made through RCE are tax-deductible. Please do not feel pressured, but if you feel called to support us financially, please visit: https://rceinternational.webconnex.com/26902
Please pray for our friends and families who have lost loved ones. Continue to pray for our family as we prepare to return to Haiti. Pray for committed monthly financial supporters of our work. Pray for Robbie's students, that they would continue to grow in their faith and walk more closely with the Lord. Please pray for God's guidance regarding Irene's part-time counseling ministry in the next school year—that God would work out the details of child care, meeting spaces, etc. Also, please pray for continued health and safety, and praise God that He has been so faithful to us in those ways for these last four years!
