Have I mentioned we are extremely blessed to live on campus with a boat load of precious people?
I'm sure I have.
I have not mentioned that Aaron and I are almost the oldest people living on our sweet little commune.
There's one couple older than us who lives on campus. I'm not sure how I feel about being runner up in the "oldest" category.
Meet Ben and Katie Kilpatrick (pictured above). Ben and Katie played a big part in our family up and moving to Haiti. For that reason, there are days I'm thankful for them, and there are days when I kind of want to shove them on the ground.
I wanted to introduce this couple to you because we love them, and because they have posted some pics of our boys on their blog.
Pics of the little boys and a pic of Aaron leading worship.
There are also pictures of the seniors in my kitchen learning to make homemade pizza. What a fun group!
Please tell me we all have those days when we pretend we're someone else.
When I have those moments where I escape from reality I imagine I'm either someone who can shake it like Beyonce, a doctor who delivers babies in the tent cities, someone who is tough enough to be on a roller derby league, or I'm someone who is fluent in a different language and uses that skill to constantly save the day.
Kind of sad...but it's true.
Well...see those seniors in that picture up there?
In one moment they will be speaking perfect, smart girl English. In the next moment they bust into French. Give them a few more minutes and they will be talking in Creole. When they do that crap around me I grab their little faces, look them in the eyes and say..."You are the coolest. person. ever."
The seniors are pretty special. Aaron gets to spend time with them every day. He adores them.
Check out their mad pizza making skills here.
Oh...and why not check out this incredible video about Ben and Katie? They were recently featured on Brian Mosley's Blog, President of Blue Fish TV.
I hope their story inspires you to risk, to trust God, and to let Him write a beautiful story with your life!
