Ryan and I felt God was leading us back to the states, but there was no one to replace us. So for awhile we were very confused as to what God was trying to do/ teach us. Ryan was trying to work towards giving some of his responsibilities over to the hatiens. We were feeling very unsure about leaving here without replacements! We had tickets to move back, but yet it still felt strange leaving. We had been praying for replacements for quite some time!
We are very overjoyed to announce that the Lord has supplied and we have replacements!! :) Andy & Bev Faller will be joining CWM on May 7th! They have lived down in Haiti for a year working with another mission. Their year commitment is up and they feel like God is directing them here. We are very happy for the way God has supplied! It feels like nothing short of a miracle with how everything fell into place!
To us it feels like God wanted us to be ok with moving to the states, getting tickets and working in that direction, before He would show us His plan. Trusting God when you dont know what His plan is, is not easy. It feels like we need to "help" God or He had forgotten about us. He hasn't!!! His timing is always perfect!!
Pray for Andy's as they move up here and learn the responsibilities here. Also pray for us as we pack up and move back.
God is good, even when we cant see His plan!!!
God bless your day,
Ryan and Kendra Skrivseth

April 11th-19th Geneva came to visit us!! We had a wonderful time.
She helped me defrost my freezer. She sewed me a dress. She got up at 6am on Saturday morning to do the laundry, because the sun woke her up. (someone needs to learn to sleep in :) we went to market and the beach one day. Some how I only got one picture of her being here.
Our time here in Haiti is fast coming to a end. For those of you that haven't heard, we have tickets to fly back to the states June 1st. How can 2 years go so fast? We have enjoyed our time here and it will be hard to leave our friends, but we are excited about entering a new adventure. Pray for us as we finish our time here and settle into our lives in South Carolina.
Yall have a blessed evening!
