Cali’s thoughts on Wednesday

As I sit here outside watching the boys play soccer I’m just reflecting on the day and this awesome week I have had.
This morning we went to the school and ran the VBS again. It is so fun starting to get to know these kids and starting to remember their names. The girls are all so cute. And the boys are all just studs, so cute. I have had an amazing time hanging out with and just loving on these kids this week.
After we finished VBS, we headed to Wahoo Bay! It is this awesome resort on the beach north of Port-au-Prince. It was absolutely beautiful! When we got there I headed straight to the ocean. It was gorgeous teal water. It was unbelievable! After awhile I went into the pool. I went over and grabbed Vinny and we swam together for awhile. It was amazing. I didn’t want to let him go. Again a moment I won’t forget. I told him I needed to get all my hugs in before we leave and he just goes okay! Haha he is just the cutest thing ever, and I couldn’t be more sad that we have to leave him here Friday. I have loved getting to know him, and getting to hug him whenever I want. Well, he doesn’t always like it but I don’t care πŸ™‚ I have some awesome pictures, but they won’t load so I will have to post them when we get home.
I have a few prayer requests as we prepare to leave early Friday morning. We have to say goodbye to the boys tomorrow night. I am very nervous and anxious about having to say goodbye and having to leave them here. It is going to be really hard for me and Willy to leave Vinny here. I am asking if you would please pray that we would feel peace tomorrow night, and know that we will get to see him again and hopefully soon. Thanks! Again- sorry for the typos, writing on the phone!


  1. Oh Cali, LOVE your posts…lifting you up and love your connection to your little bro already!! God is so good to develop that bond!

  2. Once again, loving everything you have written. I don’t think I can begin to imagine how you and Willy (and your mom) will ‘deal’ with the good-byes. I know that I would be a bawling mess. I will be praying non-stop for all of you to have God’s Peace and Contentment in TRUSTING HIM to bring everything together at the right time. Romans 8:28 has been my anchor for years. I change the wording sometimes just so that it pertains more to what my need is at the time. I love you Cali and cannot wait to hear all about your trip. πŸ™‚

  3. Praying for you all, Peace. Confidence. For God to make a fast shortcut way for Vinny to come home soon. Anything worth waiting for is worth the wait. That’s Vinny. Worth waiting for.
    Love to all.
