I always thought people who blogged must have extremely fascinating lives. And I never thought of myself as someone who had very much to say...if you know me, you know I am not a big talker. So then I started to think about what I have to offer to the blog world...I don't have any amazing/profound advise, nor do I know any arts and craft secrets to share. And I don't have a kid to blog about all the funny things they say and do. But then I realized...I do probably have the best job in the world! I get to work with some of the most amazing and beautiful children. The children here in Haiti have a very captivating spirit, you can’t help but fall in love. (And even while I am typing this...I have 3 very energetic and charismatic boys in my apartment...Stevenson, Christopher, & Iverson. They are entertaining my husband, Ruben, and Pearl...our 80lb labordoodle.)
Ruben and I recently moved back to Haiti to continue to work at Mission of Hope. And one of my "jobs" (if you can even call it a job) is to help with the children’s ministry here at the Church of Hope. My other responsibility is to help coordinate the marketing efforts. (Thank you mom and dad for that marketing degree!) There is always so much happening around here that we want everyone who is investing in Mission of Hope to know about it.
So with that, I realized…I, too, live a fascinating life. I live a blessed life and I want to share it with you. With this blog I plan to share my experience as a newly married girl from Oklahoma living in Haiti…a land of starfish.
Peace, love and labordoodles.
