March 4th Haiti Update

I lucked out again tonight with another phone call from Jayson in Haiti. They had a great day, and spent most of it helping at the EBAC orphanage. The team was able to meet the children, play, help teach, and do a lot of cleaning around the campus. Overall it sounded like a good day.

The weather continues to be a little frustrating for them - still rainy and for the first time ever, even a little chilly. This has made most of the roads around the area pretty impassable, so it's changed their plans a bit. There is still a ton of work and play to be done, so not to fear - they just have to be a bit flexible.

Tomorrow they are hosting a large (and I mean LARGE) event for all of the children in the area, so please be praying for that. As you can imagine, kids in Haiti don't get a ton of "events" just for them, so this is a pretty big deal. I'm sure that everyone will have a blast!

Thanks again for all of your prayers... keep them up!

Thanks for the updates Katy!

Looks like the weather will be improving for you guys with temps in the high 70's to low 80's.

Praying for God's continued blessing...

I'm praying that God keeps everyones spirits up in spite of the challenges. I know that the time and efforts down there are making an eternal difference...

I'm also praying for Mr. Greg Robinson. If anyone can handle being Mr. Mom for a week, it's him! I feel for you Greg!!!

I am very thankful that everyone arrived safely in Haiti. In spite of the weather I know that great strides will be made. It is truly amazing the sacrifices that everyone is making for the children.

I'm also praying for my daughter, Tiffany Robinson. I know how truly difficult it was to leave her daughter and hubby behind.
