Pictorial Report--Part 1

Rev. Patrick Gué, Pastor of Mauldin's First Haitian Evangelical Wesleyan Church.

We took a quick trip to visit the campus of SWC, on Sunday afternoon.

On Monday, on our way to Brooksville, we stopped in Savannah, Ga. to visit the city and see the Haitian monument erected there to honor the bataillon of soldiers from Haiti (then St. Domingue) who took part in the Battle of Savannah in 1779.

On Tuesday, in Brooksville, we went on a picnic with the Wrights and their family.

3 years and counting!

On June 7, Daniella celebrated her third birthday! As has been the case for the last three years, we were traveling, so we celebrated several times (at the Muchereras, and at my parents), and she got to blow candles and eat cakes more than once. We also plan to have another celebration here in Wilmore for her friends here. I am sure she does not mind that one tiny bit.

Blessed-ly Ever After

Five years ago to the day, in Haiti, on the first day of summer, Lara and I entered a new season in our lives when we said: "I do." It has been a wonderful five years during which we have grown to love each other more and more. We have faced our share of challenges, but we have experienced God's faithfulness to us every step of the way. We are living "Blessed-ly Ever After!" I use "blessed-ly" not only because "happily" might sound cliché, but also because what God has given us is more than happiness.
