Prayer, Prayer, Prayer!

Hello friends!

I am so excited to be writing this post! I have quite a bit of more information on the orphanage that I would like to share with you and some prayer requests as well.

First off a prayer request: Cassie Nash who is our go-to girl (head staffer) at HCO is in Haiti as of Tuesday. She will be spending some time with Pastor Sampson (a Haitian contact for PPM and one of the kindest souls you will ever meet) as she learns the language and does operations there at HCO. Please be in prayer for her as she is doing a lot of behind the scenes work and spending quite a bit of time there with Pastor Sampson learning Haitian Creole.

I am excited to continue learning the language myself from It seems tough to speak and I will be looking in our area for a Haitian Creole speaking individual to possibly tutor me. I've heard through the rumour mill there might be a Haitian family right here in Batesville! How wonderful it would be to actually imerse myself in the culture a little before getting to Haiti!

The orphanage consists of around 40 boys ages 7-16. The boys are mostly street kids, orphaned by death of parents or just simply left at the orphanage. Be in prayer for these beautiful souls to be open to us in as many ways as possible as we begin making changes at the orphanage. Also, the older boys are beginning school this week and are in need of your prayers!

I am leaning on the Lord to bring in the financial and prayerful support that I will be needing. I know this is His will for me, so I don't doubt His faithfulness in these areas.

If you are willing to commit to being a prayer warrior for me during these next 7 months, please email me and let me know. I intend to keep this list of names with me on my trip as encouragement. Thank you so much!

Please continue keeping Eric and the other HCO staffers in your prayers, as well as the boys and other Haitians at the orphanage. Thank you all for your support!
