Homecoming footage + TV Again Tonight

Posted in Uncategorized on January 29, 2010 by J-HY

Brittney Johnson with NBC (KTVE 10/KARD 14) was over at the house again today shooting a follow-up to the story they have been running on us.  I will be shocked if they get more than 20 seconds of usable footage because of the 4 girls reeking havoc during the interview.  I will post the link once they put it online.

Here is the link to the homecoming at the airport the other night:

This is a picture from when we first got to Naomi at the Immigration and DHS holding area:

This is what Amelia is doing most of the time:

Coming Home

Posted in Uncategorized on January 26, 2010 by J-HY

We are at the Orlando airport getting ready to start heaing home. Our flight from DFW to MLU is flight 3508 getting in at 8:15pm.

We would love to see you there. Amelia will be there as well! No hugs for our overwhelmed Naomi but we would love your presence to celebrate their homecoming. Naomi is not ready for your hugs yet, but we will definitely take them.

Here we are

It has been impossible to try and update our blog with everything moving so fast….follow my twitter updates as that has proven to be the easiest way to keep everyone up to speed.  Well actually, so much GOD stuff has happened, it is really impossible for me to remain up to speed.

We are at a hotel in Orlando sleeping.  We are ALL so tired.  Just sit and think for a moment what Naomi’s life might have been like for the past two weeks….heck, even the last 48 hours for her could stress a grown man into going postal.

Anyway, she basically zoned out in her car seat before we were even out of the airport.  She fell asleep in a matter of minutes.

I got about an hour nap….still feel like I have been hit by a train but my stress level has dropped 1,000,000,000% .

The family that lived in Haiti and ran Naomi’s orphanage is here in Orlando, so we are going to take her over to visit them for a few minutes tonight.

We haven’t eaten yet today, so that will hopefully appear on the agenda at some point.

I am praying that I can remember at least half of the events that have taken place over the past 2 weeks….God showed up and did some AMAZING things that nobody can claim.  I told Sarah, if we don’t come out the other side of this with faith that can move mountains, we have missed it.  I’m telling you, our God is sovereign.

Now my soul can rest

Plane to Haiti – Update

Posted in Uncategorized on January 23, 2010 by J-HY

I think I am confirmed for Tuesday morning. Thanks everyone…so amazing how God’s people have responded.

Have heard they are shutting the embassy down tomorrow so getting in Tuesday morning is probably my best move.

Will give more details on the mission soon. Getting on plane to bring Amalia home very soon.

Need a ride to Haiti

Posted in Uncategorized on January 23, 2010 by J-HY

Our orphanage has requested my assistance in Haiti to help get the rest of our kids out.

I need a seat on an already scheduled relief plane. I can travel anywhere in the US to get on that plane.

I have an official request from Heartline Ministries vouching for their need of my services in Haiti immediately.

Email or call with any leads.
