Kettia #3

The first time I talked about her I told you she was treated soo poorly at the son of god orphanage. I told you, “I don’t think that she will make it alive to September.” Then I told you that she weighed 11 pounds and that life for her did not look too bright. I also mentioned that she went missing and that a LOT of people thought that she had died. It was a quite reasonable thing to think, I mean how long can a 7 year old live at 11 pounds!?  I never fully believed that Kettia was dead, but with the situation and so many people saying she was dead, it crossed my mind a few times. I kept re-quoting myself, “I cant wait till the day when she, who used to be 11 pounds, is reading and learning from my 11 pound physics book!”  Now I tell you that Kettia is ALIVE!!! I cant tell you how awesome it is to hear that and to say it! My little baby is alive and well! She is running and playing and safe!! In October she couldn’t stand on her own. Now she is running!! Im so excited! My hopes for her future have gotten so much better! Praise the Lord! He is so awesome! I have, in my mind, adopted all of these children as my own. Especially the ones I connected with on higher levels. If you don’t understand how amazing this is let me tell you how I feel. My child, who was spoken of that she was dead, is ALIVE!!! My life is a never ending blessing from God! Things like this are just great examples of that! Seriously, this is like better than anything that has, and maybe even, will happen to me!
What a wonderful day! I was fired from my job, which was a blessing in so many ways, as well as a problem. It was too hard for school and physically it was abusive. Now, however, I wont be making any more money for my trips to Haiti so I hope that all works out. God has a plan, always has, and im just a leaf on the water, waiting for his wave of instruction to carry me on. I have never been sure of anything, aside from the fact that God is God, in my life that Haiti is where he wants me to be. I know I talked about Turkiye and how I thought that God wanted me to be there, but truthfully it was a selfish desire, that had nothing to do with God. Haiti is all about God for me! It helps me be the person God wants me to be and I want to be. It helps the people Im around. Im blessed to have God’s love! I hope this news is awesome to you! Thanks for your support!
I love you all so much!
Please continue to pray for the missing children! Also please pray for us as we try to go to Haiti this Christmas. If you have any questions about our plans for our trip please let me know! We need as much support and prayer as we can get! My email is coolkim333@yahoo.com
You guys are awesome!

The Story Summary

On the way back from the trip the leaders called my brother, Trevor, and asked him to go to Haiti A.S.A.P. (That was on Tuesday October 25th) Trevor soon found out that he would need to bring all the food that he was going to need for the next 2 ½ months and several supplies for the girls at the orphanage. They need to be nurtured back to health so protein shakes and other medications like that was what Trevor bought. The kids at Megan’s school cannot go to school without shoes. Haiti has a, strange but, strict dress code policy. So we got like half a million shoes for them J and then we found out that the girls at the orphanage could not go to church because they did not have any dresses or skirts. We got a lot of those too J We packed 4 crates of 50 pounds worth of all of that stuff, but had to scatter it between all of the boxes for weight reasons. Then Trevor had 1 bag of clothes, which were in space bags. He also had 2 carry on bags. On Tuesday, a week after the leaders asked him to go to Haiti, we drove Trevor and his 300 pounds worth of luggage to the airport. There were some last minute details that we needed to be done, and they put us an hour behind. Finally we arrived at the airport! Mom went to park the car and we went to go get the bags checked. After they had all been weighed the lady told us that it would cost $500!!! We called our missions Pastor, who was paying for the luggage because it had all of the girl’s supplies in it, and told him how much it would cost… He told us that we were going to have to cut out 2 crates! So, now running even more than an hour behind, started pulling stuff out and replacing the stuff that Trevor really wanted but didn’t really need. Finally we got him all squared away and sent off! He flew from Denver to Dallas and waited there for 3 hours. Then he flew to Fort Lauderdale where he spent the night. Then he left first thing Wednesday to Haiti. He arrived safely and has been having a wonderful time! He is staying at Megan’s house in Gressier. Megan is not there right now but Trevor is having lots of fun playing with his old pall Michaelle and his new friend, Michaelles sister, Jessica. He went to the girl’s orphanage on Thursday for about 5 minutes. He told me Thursday night that he saw Kedlene,

one of my girls, and that she remembered me. He said that she told him to tell me hi J He told me that she looked very healthy! That was pretty amazing news!!! He went to the beach, and from the looks of the pictures had a lot of fun! He got to go back to the girl’s orphanage and spend some time with them. He took this picture with Kedlene   

 J  (She is the girl on the left.) And he has been having fun celebrating his birthday and spending time with Michaelle and Jessica. He is writing his own blog, http://haitiguy.blogspot.com/2011/11/morning-breath.html?spref=fb feel free to check it out J Today, November 7th, is Trevor’s 21st birthday. We might be sad that he is gone, (although I’m not. Because I know how much fun he is having there and how many people he is helping!) We are glad he is there and having a good time! I hope to update you soon! We have some exciting news coming to you! We can’t wait to hear from you! Thank you so much for your prayer and support! You truly are a blessing from God! God has already placed Haiti on, Trevor, my mom, and my heart. Just wait until Marin goes! J As always, have a blessed day!
Madison !

God is so good!
