Jenny is safe and thrilled to see us

9 Nov

One of the places we've been helping in Haiti is an orphanage in Leogane, a town that experienced flooding during the hurricane last week. God was merciful to the orphanage and there were no problems. Matthew and I helped them unpack from their hurricane prep and get food supplies back in order. I had a very clear directive from my wife and youngest daughter, "Please go see Jenny and make sure she's OK." Jenny is a young orphan who captured the hearts of Cathi and Anna this summer. As I walked up to Jenny this morning her eyes opened wide and her smile brightened the sky. This was the first time she'd met Matthew and she snuggled right into his arms. In the midst of such difficult circumstances, the hug a child receives makes everything else immaterial.
