Please Join In Prayer

Would you please join us in praying for our dear friend, Danny Pye? Danny is an American Missionary serving in Jacmel, Haiti. Danny was unjustly arrested and put in prison 126 days ago and he remains there today. Danny and his wife Leann, along with their daughter, run a children's home for 22 Haitian youth. He is a regarded as a father by so many children and is about to add to that number. Leann is due with their second child in a few short weeks. Danny is being held on erroneous charges and has not received a trial or sentence. In fact, less than 25% of all Haitian inmates have recieved a trial. Having to be apart from his family for so long is unjust, potentially having to miss the birth of his son is so devastating, and surviving in inhumane, cramped conditions is unbearable.

Please pray with us for the speady release of Danny from prison.

The Big Things

We moved into our neighborhood when Luke was not quite 4 years old. Troy and Luke have been best friends ever since. Their friendship is full of laughter, business schemes, and adventures. They've been known to pool their money for start-up funds for their yo-yo entertainment company or to buy a friend chicken snack from the local corner store.

Luke's empathy and Troy's generosity have made them quite the duo. He's become part of our family and leaving him will be one of the hardest things I can imagine.
