Send Judah to Haiti!

We are so excited to share our lives with the people of Haiti again. This time with Judah. I can't wait to see their faces and give them crazy giant hugs. I heard that when they found out we were having a baby the women were jumping up and down with excitement, I can't wait for them to hold her and feel the love of God. It was, of course, these women who wished a baby on us and told us we were not allowed to come back to Haiti without one. Well they got their wish!

This is my least favorite part of preparing for a missions trip though. I dread FUNDRAISING. Yes, I have to ask for money to send my family and I to Haiti. Why is it so hard for me to do this? I guess I don't know why you want to support us and I don't really want to try to convince you to. I feel bad that most everyone is in a financial bind these days, yet here we are asking you to send us on a trip. I guess then, I have to remind myself that although I enjoy so much being in Haiti and bringing lots of love down there... there are things that I don't enjoy. Like pumping my own water for a shower, like spiders that come up from the ground if it gets wet, like sleeping in tents, dripping with sweat, and listening to voodoo rallies throughout the night. This is when I remember that you aren't sending us on a vacation, rather, you are sending us to poorest country in the western hemisphere, a country that God has given us the love and strength for, a country that not many people would be paid to visit, but a country that needs us. You are sending us on a mission that needs to happen, but not by just anyone... only by the people that God has graced with enough strength to complete it. Phew. I guess that makes me feel a little better =)

So here I am. There is no way we can go on this trip without your help. Actually, if we were smart we should probably use all the money we get to pay our loan bills or something- but we feel that this is where we are supposed to be this August, bringing the love and power of Jesus to the people of Haiti.
More specifically Mike will be overseeing and participating in re-painting the school, we will be putting a roof on the orphanage (ya-hoooo!!) and loving on and praying for the people of the village (this is Judah's job).
Pray about it. Think about it. If you want to support us please do. Either way, pray for us! We want God to change these people's lives forever. We also want to be safe and smart with Judah. We feel confident that she will fit in just fine down there and there will be no problems at all, but some prayers of protection over are our family are always welcomed.

Financial details: $1500pp total. so for us, $3000. We will need this money by August 14th. The dates of the trip are August 15th-23rd. A $600pp deposit is needed to secure our plane tickets. This is needed for the first week in May.

So, $1200 for May 1st. $1800 more by August 14th.
Online payments can be made via this site OR checks can be made out to HCHF with HOYLE in the memo line, and sent to us. Contact me for address.

Thank you so much for supporting our family as we step into some of the plans God has for us!
Courtney (Mike and Judah too!)
