Happy Birthday, Rebecca

While the cats away, the mice will play.  That's usually true...unless you are in Haiti.  Chris has been away all week and we've been busy with Kidz Clubs and doing a "Spring Cleaning" of sorts around the base.  We've cleaned and reorganized everything because this summer we have back-to-back and even overlapping teams.  This means no days off in between.  Yikes!

After a long week, we spent our Sunday with church at CAD.  Everyone on our team participated while I did "crowd control" for the adult "helpers". Basically, that means I am the buffer between the kids and workers during church so that the kids are free and do not have to be fearful of disciplinary stuff.  They can relax and be kids!

After church Cassandra and I made lunch, then Cassi and I made brownies for our friend Rebecca's birthday.

Rebecca is married to our Haitian friend, Rismith.  Her sister Edna and cousin Susan have been here for almost 8 weeks and are leaving this Tuesday.

They have built this home.  The first floor will be a vocational school and the second is their private residence.
The view overlooking the lake is breathtaking.  We joined them and some of their other friends on the porch for iced tea and popcorn.

The girls are so sweet and I am sad they are leaving so soon.  I'm excited that we will be able to support Rebecca while her family is away.

The other day the three girls came over and brought us notes and a handcrafted quote.  It reads:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure...
We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, talented, gorgeous and fabulous?"  
Actually, who are you not to be?
As we let our lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same!
