This was Anna's question as we packed up her doll houses and several other belongings of hers and Jacob's to be sold at the Tar Heel Kids Consignment Sale last month. Of course we talk about and pray for Haiti and our plans to move there daily, but this is still a difficult concept for an eight and ten year old to understand. Anna and Jacob have both done surprisingly well as we've explained we're giving up some of our things in order to serve and share Christ with the people of Haiti. We also found a home for one of our cats. The day a young family came to pick up Peaches was the hardest yet. We had lots of tears.The kids held it together until they pulled out of the driveway but this was tough! My heart hurt for little Anna as she gave up something ( or someone ) she loved. Pray God will work in both their hearts and truly  teach them to sacrifice for others. Pray this for Tom and I too. It's going to be hard to be so far away from all our other family here in the States. We've had fun making a doll house and fort from cardboard boxes and believe me, there will be Barbies, Pollies, and Star Wars Legos in our suitcases when we get on that plane.
