I continue to reap the benefits of your unceasing prayers. Although I have dedicated myself wholly to ministry and have not been working a regular job (receiving the steady income I previously enjoyed), it is exciting to see how the LORD continues to meet ALL of my needs. I was reminded of this yesterday when I went to get my prescription polarized glasses fixed, and they decided to give me a brand new pair for free! It is true as it says in Matthew 6:33 CEV, "Put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well." I will share more news about this as the plans unfold for a property and a little mission base in Haiti.
I am currently visiting the United States with a Haitian pastor/friend (Nestor Pierre) and have enjoyed seeing many of you, and look forward to seeing the rest, if possible. I have two opportunities for this...

Last week, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Through God's divine timing, I already had my ticket purchased and plans made to be together with my family. Although I didn't know the importance of my presence to my mother and father at this time, God did. Thank you so much for your prayers, especially for healing of my mother (Miriam Arbaugh).
I am having a wonderful time loving, being loved and enjoying time with my family.
