Email from Herby

Herby is a translator who works for the Baptist Orphanage in Haiti. When mission trips go to Bercy, Herby is hired to stay with the group throughout their visit. He is a delightful young Haitian man who many of us have become quite attached to.

Herby has a facebook site, but no computer. When a mission group comes to Bercy, there is always someone with a laptop. This allows Herby to connect with the outside world. We received an email from him today and Jenifer was by his side sending us a message. It was very sweet to hear from our beautiful daughter. She sent her love and wanted to know when we were coming to Haiti.

It was a great blessing for us to actually hear from her. It is so rare that we are able to communicate with her as there are no phones and no address to send mail. The internet can be a wonderful tool if used properly.

No news regarding the adoption process. I have been in touch with another family that are adopting from the orphanage and their paperwork is in the last stage. Looks like their child could be coming to America soon. We will certainly rejoice with them.
