Troy just returned from four nights in the Houston, TX area. He was able to see both of our girls and their husbands and the amazing grand-baby. He also hired two Texas teachers for the January to June teaching position. The kids have teachers for the next semester! SO many of you shared that post, per our request. We want to thank you because most of the applicants were not folks we had any prior connection to - you helped us find our teachers.
I am hoping to get time to share with all Heartline friends the story of Glennon and Amy's trip to Haiti (there are some FUNNY things you must know) and also to detail which portion of the funds that were raised will be coming to the Heartline Maternity Center and exactly how we will be using those funds. That is on my to-do list and will be the next post here. Please keep supporting Heartline Ministries and help us love and honor Haiti with educational opportunities and maternal healthcare. You can support Beth McHoul as she runs a race November 14th with several others for Heartline by clicking here.
Also, today happens to be a big day in Haiti as the announcement regarding the presidential election are going to be made. Please pray with us.

If you saw the Documentary entitled CLOSURE, you already know how solid and honest and vulnerable these two have been in order to elevate the voices of adopted children and adults - as well as their birth parents. (This is our heart - to honor their stories in every way.)
This new project is going to be just as lovely and I believe it is necessary work. Please watch this and consider kicking your weekly coffee money toward their cause. GIVE HERE.

May God bless us with discomfort at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships—so that we may live deep within our hearts.May God bless us with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people—so that we may work for justice, freedom, and peace.May God bless us with tears to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war—so that we may reach out our hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.And may God bless us with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in the world—so that we can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor
