We have since then also installed a new a/c unit (without a/c for 4 months, ouch), and moved every piece of furniture in both living rooms. We still have to redo whole bath room tile (fell off during siding project), paint whole outside of house, fix up two sheetrock patch jobs inside, and then repaint living room, repaint patch in bedroom, and replace all light fixtures around outside of house, and I am sure that I am forgetting something. Makes me tired just writing it.
Cant wait to get everything done but it will be a long time before it is all completed. So thankful for the guys that helped us. I will see God's love for us every time I look at our house and see what those men sacrificed to help us. They took time away from their families to help us do something we would not have been able to do ourselves. I pray that God blesses them in return for blessing us.

I want to tell you about something that changed my life! Now I know that sounds very dramatic, but I am very excited about Accountable Kids which I started implementing in my home. We have been doing it for several weeks and the change in my children and home have been completely amazing.

Here is an update from someone that I met trying to get down to Haiti to help in the relief efforts.
Note from the Field in PAP - Agape gets the job done!!
Hello everyone at Agape,
You guys at the best!
I don't know where to start to thank you for all you do, and to tell you what a huge impact your work is having on the people in Haiti. Jill and I ended up working at St. Damian's Hospital in Port Au Prince with the help of David Heady and the other wonderful people at the mission. Not only did you get us to Haiti you gave us this wonderful connection with wonderful people who transported us to the hospital in the morning, picked us up at night, brought us back to their compound, fed us, gave us a place to shower and sleep, and kept us safe. There were quite a few other people staying there from around the country including Orthopedic docs, Nurses and UN workers.
David and his group of people are getting things done with your help. They have people going out to more remote areas to help those who are not able to get to hospitals. They also set up a small clinic near their property, and word is getting out to people near by that it is available. It is small organizations like yours that seem to be very affective. The UN and US military and other countries military are present and I know they are helping, but their large vehicles like tanks and troop transport trucks are clogging up the few passable roads. Little pick ups like Davids can get through, plus they know the area and are much more efficient.
Plus David doesn't have to go through ten or twenty other people to make a decision thus slowing the process of getting people and supplies where they need to be.
I will write more and keep in contact.
In the mean time know you are helping so many. I saw supplies you sent. A - boxes were stacked in a hallway and again I felt like it was Christmas and started opening boxes looking for things were desperately needed.
We have huge respect and admiration for all of you.
I will send more photos of Jill and others. These is just had in a group to send to a company trying to get donations of disposable linens.
