Welcome to our family's Haiti happenings!

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell
in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee
the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and
he shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37:3-5

 Daddy was driving home from Gonaives (1 ½ hrs. north of us) and was only about ½ hr from our home. He could see the camion (big truck) coming down the road towards him, but usually they will stop when there’s a traffic problem. The two cars in front of  Daddy went into the left lane because of a big dirt pile in the right lane. He debated about following them, and usually would have, but he felt the Holy Spirit telling him to pull over behind the dirt pile and wait… So he did (a miracle!).  Within  a few seconds the camion came barreling down in his lane, taking no regard for the two vehicles heading toward him, also in his lane. He hit the tap-tap (small truck/taxi) head-on!! People went flying out of the tap-tap and onto the street. Then the camion hit a brand new Ford pick-up smashing it up pretty bad and sending it into our Suburban!  Daddy tried to move off the road, but there was a big ravine on the right, the dirt pile in front and cars behind; he couldn’t move any further away. Praise the Lord our ’85 Suburban is sturdy or the impact could have been deadly to Daddy and the vehicle!!  God is so merciful, and we are so grateful!
