It is official! We finally convinced Isaac that walking is the way to go.
He has started in spectacular fashion and we are convinced that nothing can stop him now!
After a very long 5 month long wait, the trailer from Pennsylvania is finally safely on our campus! The port delivered the shipping container on Friday. The parking of the trailer was quite quick and only took about 10 minutes. (Somehow in my brain these sorts of things should take quite a bit longer, especially considering how long we've waited for it to arrive already.) The only hiccups we had in the delivery were that a short rainstorm decided to start when the trailer arrived at our gates and that some large decorative boulders by our gate were in the truck's turn.
Luckily for us, we live in Haiti so a little rain doesn't bother us. The rocks took some convincing to move. And by convincing I mean they were pushed with extreme prejudice with our John Deere tractor loader. (I might have gotten away with using smaller equipment, but there's just something about bringing out your inner child with large earth-moving equipment.)
Unfortunately, we don't get to open the trailer yet. It's a bummer for sure, but all the bosses are currently in Pennsylvania for the annual YWAM Haiti banquet. They are set to start returning on Friday and if they have mercy on Kate will allow us to open the trailer then.
Whew! It has been a crazy few weeks here on the base! A new fundraising video has been launched, the dance camp has come to a completion, and Jay and I have celebrated our second Anniversary!
the awesomest Parody video ever
What do you get when you get failing electricity, a bunch of sweaty crazy missionaries, some well tweaked lyrics, and an amazing videographer ? An awesome fundraising video:
But seriously though, this is a big problem for us, and many of the issues brought up in the video are quite real and it really stinks. Here is a behind the scenes look at the issues brought to you by our awesome friends:
(And yes, that WAS my wonderful husband at 3:44 hehehe!)
Please please PLEASE consider helping us reach our $50,000 goal by November!

Celebrating 2 years!
I want to finish this post off by saying THANK YOU to all of you that have supported Jay and I the past two years of our marriage! It is such a blessing to know we have so many people supporting us back home, and keeping us their prayers. Without you all, we would not be able to follow God's calling in our lives to be missionaries here in Haiti. THANK YOU!!!!
