Phone Call to Jesula

Agathe, the wonderful lady that oversees the orphanage, has a cell phone that we are able to call. She is Haitian, but speaks pretty good English. We have been calling about twice a week, usually on Wednesday and Saturday. Getting through can be hit or miss and sometimes Jesula is not nearby or available to talk. In those cases Agathe will just tell us about Jesula's week. The conversations with Jesula are wonderful, but short, perhaps 5 minutes. The language barrier really limits the conversations. Fortunately, Agathe will listen in and help interpret if she is not too busy with the other girls.

Last night, as always, Jesula was really excited to talk to us. She says, "I love you Popi", and "I love you mommy". Last night she added, "I miss you", and "when will you be here?". Just typing this makes me cry. Yes, I am a softy. Anyway, we will be there for a few days in a couple of weeks. We can't get there soon enough!!


And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16
