Spring Break...Haiti...

(please pause blog music at the bottom of the page to view video. Thank you.)

Will is heading to Haiti with the Mobile Medical Disaster Relief Team this coming Sat. for his spring break. The Aggies are going with a group of students from Abilene Christian University and the Vanderpool family. We met Dr. Vanderpool and family last weekend. They are a family dedicated to helping people and spreading the good news of our Lord Jesus. God has blessed Will with a great friend and future housemate in their son John Mark. I love it how God works and weaves people into our lives that bless us and we can bless and grow together. God is so good.

I ask for your prayers for this group of people that they may bring relief in every way to the Haitian people that they work with. I pray that the name of Jesus and His love will be shared and spread and will infect the hearts of the people of Haiti. I ask also that you pray for the protection of every person on this spring break trip. Protection from political unrest, cholera, malaria and any other tragedy or problem that might be on the horizon for them. I pray for them to feel God's extraordinary presence and leading and for growth spiritually. I ask that you pray for peace for us as parents and that God keep our boy safe. I am so proud and thankful for his heart of care for the hurt and lost.

Thank you for your prayers and Praise the Lord for this incredible opportunity that is before this group of college students! Blessings. Amy

A bit different spring break than camping at Big Bend or Fort Davis. :) Precious memories! So thankful for Will's choice to go minister to those in Haiti. We will be in prayer for the team and you and Sid! Love you!
