  • Best Restaurants in Gressier
    I think I mentioned, in a previous blog, that our family took vacation the week before I left for Haiti this year (June 24-30).  One of our wonderful supporters, Adelva Johnston, allowed us to stay in her condo at Palm Coast for the week and we had a blast.  As you are probably well aware, […]

  • Last Night in Haiti
    As I am sitting here in the Fort Lauderdale airport heading back to Jacksonville after a short trip to Haiti, I wanted to give you an update on my night last night.  It is important to understand that, almost every time that I am returning to the states from Haiti, something happens.  On one of […]

  • Latest Report Cards
    Just so you know, all of our kids who live with us passed and they passed easily!  Unfortunately, 2 of the kids who do not live with us did not pass, but 28 out of 30 is pretty good, and I was very proud of our kids.  Son Son was 2nd in his class, Fefe got […]

  • Where are the Light Bulbs?
    In a previous post, we told you about the wonderful gift that we received from Deerwood Rotary Club in Jacksonville that allowed our kids to have solar panels, batteries, a generator, and an inverter installed so that the kids would have consistent power at their house.  It is such a blessing for All Things New […]

  • Putting Together Elijah’s Crib
    I don’t know if everyone knows or not, but I just arrived in Haiti yesterday for a very short last trip before all 4 of us (Jess, Sophie, Elijah, and I) can go down together.  Accompanying me on this trip is Danielle Keeler, a nursing student and part of Campus Outreach at Jacksonville University.  She […]

  • The LaGrange Team (Elijah’s First Trip to LaGrange)
    I want to begin by apologizing for how long it has been since the last blog.  Our family spent the last week in LaGrange visiting friends and family and we had a great time seeing a lot of people.  If you are one of our supporters in LaGrange, you will be glad to know that […]

  • Logical or Emotional
    It seems, over the past few years, that anecdotal evidence and emotional thinking has taken a larger and larger role in our culture. As I am typing I understand that my opening statement, in a blog about anecdotal evidence, offers little more than my own opinion and observations on the topic with no proof provided, but […]

  • Graduating in America vs Haiti
    I was at a Senior Recognition Service at church yesterday where we were honoring recent high school graduates.  I was the Associate Pastor at RiverTown Church (where I attended the service) right before we moved to Haiti so a few of the graduates that were being honored were in my youth ministry.  It was really […]

  • 10 Airport Observations
    I have a 4 hour layover here in Ft Lauderdale so it seemed like a good time to write a blog post about some of the observations I have made today in Haiti, on the plane, and after landing.  Some of these may or may not have too much to do with All Things New, […]

  • My Last Day in Haiti
    Today is my last day in Haiti this trip as I return to JAX at around 6:00 tomorrow evening.  There is a very specific phenomenon that happens on the last day of each of our trips to ATN…Everybody asks for something!  It is like everyone from our employees to our kids to random strangers (not […]

    So I know that it is Friday night and a lot of people may miss this blog, but I am sitting here while the kids are watching a movie in the living room so I am going to write a little about my day today.  I would watch with them, but if you have ever […]

  • Electricity for the Kids
    I had 2 primary purposes for coming down to Haiti this time aside from just needing to make our presence felt.  First, with the end of school coming, it was very important that I come down and make sure that all of our kids are progressing well, will be able to pass, and do not […]

  • True Belief
    When I arrived in Haiti this past Monday, I had not reloaded my Internet yet and I was planning on doing it Tuesday morning. During that time when I was “disconnected” from the world (I know that is a dramatic statement, but you get what I mean) another horrific terrorist attack occurred. I am sure […]

    First of all, the kids are doing great. I arrived in Port Au Prince a little before 2 and then got to our house around 4:15 yesterday just in time to eat a little dinner and then pick up the kids to go play at Hope Rising. It was so good to see them and […]

  • Going to Haiti…Again!
    A couple of days ago I booked a flight to head back down to Haiti for a week starting on Monday May 22. It is funny, I will be flying up to JFK and getting to Haiti at 1:50 that afternoon for more than $100 cheaper than I could have gone through Fort Lauderdale and […]

  • More Flooding in Haiti
    If you live in the Southeastern United States, and specifically South Georgia or North Florida, then you have probably seen a lot about the huge 140,000-acre fire that has been tearing through the area. Conditions are dry and local agencies are on high alert for the possibility of other forest fires in the area. One […]

    Tuesday morning of this past week I had a meeting with Phil Atter, Bob Kleuppel, and Jim Selzer.
