Children of the Promise has been in the process of growing and better supporting our staff on the ground in Haiti. Last month, were able to add two new families (the VanderPols and VandeLunes). Serving on the ground can be stressful, especially when we go through times of transition and low staffing. We are committed to creating a healthy environment for our staff to work and live, a task that is not easy in any mission context. Last week, Nick and Nikki decided to take a sabbatical from their work at COTP. We fully support them in taking this break. They have worked tirelessly for the last 2 years and have been an integral part of our ministry. They now have the chance to take a much needed breather. At this point, we are not sure how long this break will last. Our goal for now is to continue to support and love them, and help them find a time of rest in our Heavenly Father.
