Happy fall ya’ll!! We hope you are enjoying the beautiful season of changing leaves, weather, and football!!! With this season of change, our family has some exciting news to share with all of you as well. Over the course of the past year, our family has learned so much as a missionary family, enjoyed the wonderful little village that we live in, and served in a country in desperate need of Jesus. We are so thankful for the year that we have spent with myLIFEspeaks, and the wonderful blessing Neply has been to our family.
We are so excited to announce that we have accepted a position within an organization called Respire Haiti. Respire is in the development stage of a Sports and Recreation program focused on sharing the gospel through sports to the children at their school and in the community. Chris has accepted the position of Director of Sports for this new program. We are excited to see Chris become a part of developing a program that uses his passions, experience, and comes so naturally to him.
We feel that anyone that knows and loves Chris will be excited for this incredible opportunity that is before us. There are many blessings in this move for our family. Our children will be living in the same neighborhood as most of their friends that they attend school with twice per week. Tracy will be helping to develop a further vision for the special education classroom at the Respire school as well.
Although our hearts will be hurting in more ways than words can describe because we are leaving so many people that we have grown to love so much, we know that this opportunity will be such a blessing for our family. Please pray with us as our family transitions into our new roles at Respire Haiti. Specifically, please pray for our kids as they learn their new environment and miss their very dear friends in Neply. Please pray that the logistics and expense of moving will all come together quickly. Please also pray that Chris and Tracy can get some much needed rest and rejuvenation in the states before we return to begin our ministry with Respire Haiti. We are traveling to the states on November 22, 2013 and will return to Haiti on December 29, 2013. We will begin our work with Respire at that time or shortly after.
The love, encouragement, and friendships that you have all provided for our family during our time in Haiti has been amazing. God created us all for relationship, and without all of you, our work would not be possible. Our level of thankfulness and gratitude cannot be expressed with words when we are speaking of the magnitude of your support to our family’s ministry in Haiti. We love all of you dearly!
