one day at a time

Not much has gone the way we planned it. Not much at all; but we have felt the grace of God so strongly these past two weeks. It has been so evident from the beginning that He is right here with us.

When we were half-way to Florida, we got the call that grandma was in the hospital. She had to have surgery the next morning. Crazy as it sounds - she wanted grandpa and I to go anyways. The timing of the whole thing worked out perfectly, mom was able to stay with grandma in the hospital - and grandpa and I were actually able to take the trip.

It was definitely an unforgettable experience. I took about 600 photos... Mountains, villages, insane traffic moments, but the children stand out the most for me. Still being away from home, and with limited access to all my photos at the moment - I've only been able to load a few pictures of the kids we worked with every morning. Mostly Spanish speaking, but a few Haitian immigrants too. It was such a blessing to spend time with these sweet kids.

I promise to have more when I can... Meanwhile, please keep our family in prayer. The news for my grandma has not all been good, but we are trusting in the Lord - we have really felt His presence in the midst of this.

Hi Kate,

The children are so beautiful! I'm so glad that you were able to go and minister to them in spite of the difficulties back home. We are keeping your grandmother in prayer.

Grace and peace in Jesus Christ,

Mrs. Mendenhall

Hi, Kate!

I'm praying for your family, and especially for your grandmother. I'm glad you returned from your trip safely.
