Prayers lifted up

Life has a way of passing you by when immersed in so much change. This past 6 months we have been meaning to blog about our life back in Canada, how much we miss Haiti, the trips we have taken back to Haiti since moving back to Canada but we have been busy enjoying life in the moment day by day.

Do you ever notice how independent you get from God when things are going good? Maybe you find yourself reading your bible less, praying a little less earnestly or sharing God's life changing power less often.. This week our daughter Teagan's friend Kenton tragically drowned while swimming at his cottage......Life has a way of putting things in perspective from time to time. There is nothing is like a young 15 year old full of life and opportunity losing his life so young. Having your child loose someone close to them is something we have not experienced before and it is tough to see them suffer.

Kenton was a young man who at first meeting filled the room with life. He was one of the young teens that was inspired by the stories Teagan brought back from Haiti and one of those that went on her mission trip to Mission of Hope with her in March. Even though Kenton's life was cut short, we praise God for His infinite wisdom and we praise God for giving Kenton the life changing experience he had in Haiti. We praise God for who Teagan is and how he gave her the strength to share her experiences that lead to such great things.

Read about their experiences including Kenton's thoughts and Teagan's last blog at Stop and Think

Hug your kids, enjoy all moments, lift up your prayers and trust in God always...
