Teachers Needed for Seven Terrific Kids
Next year our kids and the Livesay kids will be educated closer to where the Heartline Programs are located. We'll be hiring two teachers to educate our adorable, creative, funny (and sometimes rotten) group of children. For all the details, please head over to Tara's blog.
After we wrap up the school year at QCS, our family will be moving closer to Heartline. Have I mentioned that the six mile drive to Heartline on Tuesdays and Thursdays takes me over an hour, sometimes up to two? Traffic is a stressful beast in this country. Bumper to bumper traffic. Usually driving a standard. I come home with a numb left leg from workin' that clutch. I walk in the front door with a limp and a sweaty back. Aaron is so glad to have his sexy wife back home, let me tell ya.
We've enjoyed our time at QCS, but there's no way we want our kids to be away from us for the many hours attending QCS would require (once the drive time is factored in). We really like our kids (a lot) and want them to be a part of what we're doing and connected to the things God is busy doing around us in Haiti. From the very beginning we've been telling our kids that God called our family...as a family...to Haiti. He has a reason for each of us in our home being here. These kids did not simply tag along with their parents. God knew every single one of us would land in this country. He is just as busy shaping our boys as He is shaping their parents. He is writing their story as well as ours, and Haiti is a big part of how God will grow them into the people He is knitting. We encourage them to keep their eyes opened wide...to be looking for how God will use them here in this country to love and serve the Haitian people. With that said, we are asking for God to grow our faith as we trust in this new plan for educating them so that our kids can be deeply connected to the work God has for each of us to do in Haiti through Heartline.
Please...for the love...will you pass along this information to others who don't read our blogs? And will you pray with us that God would bring just the right teachers who will work well with the Heartline community and enjoy educating our precious kids?
