Sometimes God Allows Special People to Cross Your Path...

(this story is told only after having permission from all parties.)

Last week in Haiti, God brought some really special people into our lives and one happens to sing like an angel and have a real heart for Christ and for the people of Haiti. Her name is Hillary and even though the best part of her is her love for others and her love for God she also happens to be an award winning singer with the country music group Lady Antebellum! Marc had arrived in Haiti on Thursday with a really small team with BGM. Hillary and her friend Graham were part of that team. Hillary and Graham have a close friend that gave them a basketball to take to Haiti. He told them to give it to the shyest boy in the group of kids. When they walked in a little boy was standing in the corner and they knew immediately that he was to have the ball....... Fast forward to later in theday when they were at the creche with Marc and asked him to introduce them to his son. Marc picked up Vensly and they couldn't believe that he was the one they had said would get the ball! What a God thing! They had no idea that Vensly was Marc's son!

Below is Vensly with another special friend Kelly that we met this week and he is holding the ball that Hillary gave to him! Very special and I can't wait for him to get home and be able to play with it all the time!!!

I love this picture even though it's a little blurry! I love how when you do that to him he just screams and laughs! So precious! He is so blessed to have so many people love him already! I know that we will forever be friends.... As you can see he LOVES his new basketball!!! Thank you so much Hillary for your thoughtfulness and love for us and our son! I can't wait to tell him about it one day...and about you!
