OUR NEW HOME!
Praising God we have a home in Haiti. We are grateful for our home that was the previous Field Directors home for the past 9 years and we are thankful to be able to now make memories in it with our family. There are 3 bedrooms just like our current home so the older two will stick together in their bunk beds like they are now and Zeke will get the smaller room all for himself. My prayer I had been praying for our home was that wherever we were, it would have a yard for our boys to play in and this one does, which we are so grateful for.

AMAZON TO THE RESCUE!

We have had many of you ask how you can help or what items we need etc so we were encouraged by other missionaries to make a wish list on Amazon of things we still need to get and bring with us, as many of these items would be very expensive to ship in once there. If you’d like to donate any of these items towards our move, we would greatly appreciate it. We will need to have any item donations given to us by the 13th as that is when Jim takes the moving truck down to Florida to put it on the shipping container.

HOW YOU CAN PRAY FOR US:

1. For the sale of our home to go through well with no issues.
2. For strength & wisdom for us as we pack everything up securely to ship over to Haiti.
3. For the rest of the monthly support that we need.
4. For us to finish well on this side, with spending time, making memories with family & friends.
5. Transition for the boys and us as we move and as the boys start school there. For Jim & April as they dive into language studies and acclimate to life in Haiti.
6. We would love prayer that God would help the boys find a good friend or more, to do life with in Haiti.
7. For speaking opportunities to share this summer, at churches/small groups.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANS TO US TO HAVE YOUR SUPPORT & PRAYERS!
Love,
The Starkeys
