haiti, here they come! {and, brazil, we are coming! *link to how to follow while we're gone}

i haven't touched my *real* camera in too long. these are all phone pics. but at least i have pictures! rebekah and pat left for their trip to haiti yesterday. we dropped them off at the airport early yesterday afternoon.
even though pat is with her, i am worrying about her so much (it would probably be different if she didn't have a CAST!)
they flew to miami last night. stayed overnight. and left this morning for haiti. no contact for a week...totally weird and kinda hard.

their team (a few got cut off. i wasn't the photographer ;-))

when we got back home, we were all out of sorts. none of us knew quite what to do. and we missed them already. we played a game...all together. i packed for joshua and i...and for the other 4 to head to grandma's.
leaving this one kills me. it just does. he would never act sad or be dramatic (like his sister!) but he kept asking really sweet and thoughtful questions. after bedtime...i whisked him away for a few minutes over frozen yogurt. i just needed to connect with him one on one. i'm going to be honest, it was more for me than it was for him, but i think he enjoyed it, too. :-) he said he was sad we were all leaving. and he said he would find me a pretty shell at the beach (where he is going with my parents.) his sweetness both wrecks me and fills me up. one day, he will come WITH me on one of these amazing adventures!

joshua and i head to the airport at 8 pm tonight. our plane leaves at 10 pm for brazil...a nearly 24 hour trip to get where we are going :/

i won't be posting here while we are gone. but i might be posting here or here. we aren't sure of the details until we get there. thank you for your prayers and support!!! we are excited to see how God moves and uses us as we go.
