What's Happening?

The answer to that question is a lot! A four week in-depth look at adoption is beginning this Sunday from 5 - 6 at First Baptist Church, Montgomery. We will look closely at adoption from a Biblical stand point and at the process itself.
On March 13, a ten week class is beginning at First Baptist for people in the tri-county area who are interested in becoming foster parents.
In Jacmel, there is never a dull moment! Joy and Tommy recently hosted a team from Greenville who built a church in an area just outside of Jacmel. They also hosted a team of ladies who provided some decorating services for the AH. A big thank-you to Eegee Williams who made curtains! This team enjoyed spending time with Tommy and Joy, the children, and some time on the beach. Please see pictures below.
The kids are all thriving. They continue to love all the visitors and attention. They seem to never tire of getting their picture taken. Myson was sick a week or so ago. He became dehydrated but bounced back quickly. Silmaine and Alexis stuck beans in their ears. Tommy tried to get them out but ended up taking them to the doctor. Both kids screamed and screamed! I don't think they will be repeating that any time soon. Hopefully, the other kids learned that lesson by just observing. Like I said, never a dull moment.
Charley and Marti Elgin continue to work on plans for Phase II. There are so many challenges in building in a third world country such as materials, sewage, water, electricity, etc. They continue to make progress and God continues to provide by sending the right people at the right time. It is such a blessing to watch God at work. Please pray for Martie - she is suffering with hip pain and will have a consultation with another doctor when she returns to the States the end of this month.
Also, Troy and Celia Teel and their girls visited Jacmel in October of 2011 and fell head over heels in love with the children. They are returning to Jacmel Feb. 16 -20th. Andy and Beth decided to tag along, so please pray for them as they travel.
