under papa’s wings

The last three months have been a whirlwind.

Being newly married, leaving my job, moving to Haiti (into a home of eleven), piecing back together fragments of forgotten Creole and trying to start a few projects all at once was more challenging than I ever expected.
Fear, hurt and confusion crept their way through the doubting holes in my heart, and frankly, I was overwhelmed.

Thankfully, the graceful gift of change arrived when we most needed it.

For the past couple of weeks we have lived like nomads, drifting from place to place, sometimes leaving without knowing exactly where we are going, or how we will get there.
‘But how will we get to the bus station with all of our bags?’ I ask.
‘I’m not sure. But if we just start moving, God will make a way.’
And He always does.

Surprisingly, in this place of constant transition, it’s been peaceful. It’s been restful. In movement, and change of environment, my soul has stood still, and breathed.

Peace.

I am thankful my Papa in heaven knows all my needs, and loves me so that He gives generously to me when He knows best to.
And it’s under His wings that I find security in danger, comfort in trial, and strength in weakness.

Please do keep us in your prayers when you can, and let us know however we can be praying for you.

Here are a just a few of the beautiful people that have graced our lives these past few weeks.
