Want to help?

Thanks to wonderful technology I have learned that over 100 people visit my blog daily. First of all thank you!! It was rather surprising to me and quite humbling actually. In case you read my blog posts about the orphanage and it's amazing children, the school and the new clinic and wonder how you can be a part. Check out the Three Angels website and sponsor a child for school. It's only $27 a month and can truly change the life of a child!

Think of that.....$27 That is about what it costs my family to go to McDonalds one time. It is the cost of a new shirt, a pair jeans on sale, a new book or a video game(or half of one). We've heard it so many times but really for less than a dollar a day. Wow!

Giving Glory to God!

I would love to post some praises from our recent fast. Many posted or e-mailed me that they too were being led to fast. I would love to know if you did and have a praise report to give. No names will be posted but let's give honor where honor is due and praise God for His goodness!! So if you fasted and want to share what God did during your fast, whether it is a closer relationship with Him or a mountain was moved, I would love to know and post it on a future blog post.

Please e-mail me at to share your story.

Romans 4:20-21 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

A call to fast.....

Recently, I have felt the call to fast concerning our adoption. As usual, I drug my feet. I mean honestly, who really likes to fast, especially if you are like me and food is a main source of entertainment. Anyway, more and more lately I began to feel it coming, if you know what I mean. Like God was working me up to it. Then tonight as I couldn't sleep, I kept "hearing".... A call to fast..... So I decided to get out of bed and started reading my Bible and searching different scriptures on fasting. This may seem strange but I strongly felt lead to post... a call to fast. I know there are many that read my blog that are in the process of a Haitian adoption and let's face it....the process needs help, our children need help, and we need help. So read on and let the Lord lead you in what He might want you to do.

Ezra 8:21 Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions.

I proclaim a fast, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions. Over and over I hear the scripture, If My people called by My name would humble themselves and pray..... Fasting is a sign or an act of humility. We are humbling ourselves before God, offering a sacrifice, devoting our time to be spent with him, seeking His face, instead of stuffing ours.

We are not trying to convince God of anything. It's not a hunger strike. It's just being obedient to the Word and humbling ourselves before our God. I would venture to say that many of us felt "called to adopt". We believe the Lord prompted us or lead us to this journey. If so, then we are called by His name. He has called us to this purpose and it is up to us now to walk in that purpose, to follow His plan, to seek His face and know His will. Fasting is a consecration, a time we set apart for Him, to spend with only Him, to hear His voice, to make our requests, to offer our petitions, to praise, to worship, and to obey. In Matthew the Bible tells us that Jesus fasted, and He teaches us about fasting. Did you know, He said, "when you fast," not if you fast? He expected that we were going to.

Philippians 4:6 says, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;" He wants us to come to Him. He doesn't want us to be in worry or stressed out, but to be at peace knowing we are in Him and in His will. This verse goes on to say "and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." This is His will. He wants us to come to Him with praise and thanksgiving, prayer and supplication and then His peace will guard our hearts and minds.

Joel 1:14 Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord.

I pray you will seek the Lord in this. He may not ask anything of you, but for some He may ask for 1 meal, 1 day or 1 week. If so then I encourage you to be obedient to His voice and as in Ezra we will say, "So we fasted and entreated our God for this, and He answered our prayers."

Celebrate good times, come on!!

Lourdes Mia, Wilbert & Suterlande Cundiff

Ok, so it's not valid but there is a document that says Lourdes Mia, Wilbert and Suterlande Cundiff. We made it through the Civil Judge and are now in Parquet!! Once Parquet approves it they will be legally ours according to Haitian law. I pray God continues to work in the hearts of the people working and adoptions will begin to be processed quickly. God is faithful!!

I Thessalonians 5:24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Thank you Lord for calling us to this and being faithful to bring it to completion. We celebrate because of your faithfulness!!

School Days!

School started yesterday so The Cundiff Academy is up and running. Camden started Kindergarten, Jordyn fifth grade and Alexis is our third grader. I am really enjoying this year. "Isn't it crazy" you may ask, "with three in three different grades?" Yes, the answer would be, yes it is, but I LOVE it!! They are all doing so well! The only thing Camden didn't like was recess being outside the first day. Normally he wants to go outside, but apparently he already had plans for recess that didn't involve the great outdoors. I figure if that is the worst thing that happens this year then we are in great shape!!

It is such a blessing to me to homeschool. We start the day with Bible time, which involves the pledge of allegiance, national anthem, praise and worship, bible lesson, memory verses and prayer. I love singing with the kids and watching them start their day with time focussed on the Lord. What an awesome way to start the day!! From there we jump into Phonics, Arithmetic, History, Science and the list goes on and on. I hope to incorporate Creole again, but we may wait a couple weeks for that.

Here are a few pics from our humble school room.......
