Linda, the director of House of Hope, asked us to forward news to you about how we have fared after the hurricane.

The kids are all doing well. They are in school and life seems pretty much back to normal. The only fallout for us from the big hurricane that went through has been receiving more children into our home. We’ve already received about half a dozen from the affected areas out west of us and we anticipate that going up even further in the next few weeks.

Jenny Reitz Compere went on a speaking trip to Canada. An exciting story that came out of this trip is that while speaking at our partnering church in Banff on Sunday morning, she shared the story of Lyse and our desire to find someone who could help us with her case. 

Banff is a tourist town and they often have visitors from all over the world in their church services.   In the service that morning was a family from another area of Canada  They had family visiting from Brazil and they brought them to see this beautiful area of Canada.   So, turns out the father of the family just happens to be a pediatric doctor in a children’s hospital here in Canada!  He offered to do what he could to help us with Lyse’s case.  He has all her information and is seeking some answers with the other doctors in their hospital.  We hope they are able to coordinate Lyse’s care and arrive at a solution for her serious health issues.
