Have you ever stopped to think of all the things we take for granted?  Our ability to walk, talk, see, hear...all gifts/blessings from God. We take it for granted that if our shoes wear out or we just want another pair that we can go to the mall and get another pair, that the light will come on when we flip the switch, medical treatment any time of day or night, etc...
Travelling to Haiti makes me realize that I take a lot of things for granted. I've decided to list some of those things.

A variety of food choices and as many meals each day as we care to eat. 

The village of Gramothe is a very blessed village in comparison to most other places in Haiti. God is doing a remarkable work there through Mt.Top Ministries! In the US we have SO much and take so much for granted! God has truly blessed us.

No one will ever know how blessed we are until you go on a mission trip to Haiti. They are loving people that appreciate what we do to help them have a better life. Willem & Beth are doing so much to help them learn a better way of life thur education & God. Thanks to MTM

    I am married to Bob and between us we have 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren. In addition to my family, one of my passions is photography. I love capturing someone's personality in my photos. I also enjoy scenic shots that capture God's beautiful creation and people doing everyday things that reflect their unique lifestyle. Another of my passions is being a part of Mt.Top Ministries. I know it is a God-given calling because it became such a large part of me, of who I am. I love serving people, being God's hands and feet. If I can make life a little nicer, a little brighter for someone and make them feel valued and loved then I have fulfilled my purpose! I LOVE being with the children. They are so precious to me. God has done remarkable things through Beth & Willem and I am very blessed to be allowed to be even a small part of it!
