After much praying and waiting, God has finally answered our prayers for three of our boys, James, Jocelyn and Alex, to get their visas and go to America! It is only by the grace of God that they were all three able to obtain their visas at the same time and be able to move to Pennsylvania together on Friday, December 4th!
Tom and Patricia Murphy, the ones who have made this all happen, have been working on getting the boys into a good English school in New York city for over a year. After overcoming many obstacles that were continuously put before the Murphy's, Christ was able to bring all of the glory to Himself and bring it to fruition! It is incredibly hard for Haitian's to obtain visas, so the chances of three boys getting their visas all at the same time is pretty much non-existent, but by God's hand alone He made it happen! He orchestrated it so they were all three called up at the same time at the Embassy, which is unheard of. All of the people in the Embassy just stared at them in awe as they walked up to the counter. A few minutes later, the lady issued visas to all three of the boys! We rejoice with them as we see God rewarding them for seeking Him first and foremost.
All glory be given to God for this miraculous work! As soon as they came back from the Embassy last Wednesday, December 2nd, it was nothing but a time of rejoicing! Two days later they flew off to America. It was kind of ironic having all of us Americans say goodbye to three of our Haitian boys as they boarded the plane to New York City. They are now living in Pennsylvania with the Murphy's, and will be commuting to Rockfeller center in New York City every day to enhance their learning of the English language. Thank you Tom and Patricia for all of the work you have put into making this happen, and thank you for loving our children so much! We are all excited to see how God is going to further mold them into the men of God He wants them to be, and we are excited to see how God will use them to further His Kingdom.
