    Going through the year in photos and stories reminded us of how faithful God is. To see it all in black and white and look back on the ways He sustained and provided is both beautiful and humbling.  2011 was one of the best years we've ever had in Haiti. We're so grateful for the ways God has allowed us to grow and for so much evidence of His love and mercy at work.

    Multiple stories and people touched our lives, challenged us, changed us this year.

    What story or person moved you in some way? We'd love to know.

    With gratitude to God for the year that was and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
