For 27 years, New Missions has serves faithfully in Haiti. Right now, 400 Haitians are on staff full-time at New Missions reaching over 9,000 children and families on the Leogane, Plain, hit by the destructive hearthquake.
Right now, more than ever, we are calling upon your prayers and generosity. We need your financial support to help us purchase food, construction supplies, and medical supplies. Why? Because, New Missions is not leaving Haiti, we have been there since 1983, and our mission is dedicated to changing lives, and now, they need us more than ever! Go here to donate.

The New Missions team of 44 was safely evacuated from Haiti on Friday, arriving at a secure location in the Dominican Republic. Arrangements are being made to fly the team back to Orlando, with an anticipated arrival as early as tonight.
With great anticipation we're awaiting word if Dale is with this group. We're rejoicing at God's goodness and continue to pray for the others who still today are waiting for answers.

We’ve had communication from our team in Haiti this morning, and everyone is doing well.
An evaluation team is being flown in to Haiti today. This team is being sent to provide assistance and safety for the team during the evacuation. Currently, we are working on two evacuation plans. The first plan is through the government—and consists of using either a boat or helicopters for the evacuation. The second plan would be a private evacuation—using our resources from the Dominican Republic.
Despite this tragedy, the team is fulfilling the mission that God has called them to. We believe God has each and every one of them there for a purpose.
How can you help with relief efforts?
Donate to one of three earthquake relief funds on our home page here
Attend our Haiti Rebuild Concert Sunday night, January 17, 6:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Orlando, featuring comedian Tim Hawkins. An offering will be taken, and all of proceeds will be used for relief efforts in Haiti.
Please continue to remember our New Missions team and the entire country of Haiti in your prayers.

I've been praying all day asking God, "What can I do?" Then God showed me what I can do and that is help bring a little comfort to family and friends who have been contacting me all day wanting to know if he is safe. I know many of our family and friends are not on facebook but are desperate for any glimpse of information so with the help of facebook post and contact from "our brother" I will do my best to keep you updated. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. Like my sister said today; "Its often harder on the ones left behind wondering then it is on the one going through the experience or in our brothers case the adventure!"

Candles can be expensive so I keep an eye open at the thrift shop. Since I am burning them in the fire place it does not matter if they have already been burned a little or if they have an ugly picture on the front. In fact the small white one in front, has a nice photo of "Jesus" on the front! Something I would never purchase on its own but when I saw it at the thrift shop unlit for just $.49 cents, I just turned it around and it looks great in the fireplace! I found all the red ones in a bag for $1.99 and three of the white ones for just $.49 cents each.

Go here for a .75 cent off coupon (you should be able to print it twice) for Wish Bone Salad Dressing. I love this dressing on everything especially the Italian as a marinade for our chicken. Yummy! Our grocery store doubles up to $.75 so it will be $1.50 off! I'll hold mine until it goes on sale or maybe even a BOGO free sale and it will be a great deal on dressing! You can also go here for some delicious marinating recipes from Wish Bone.

Next, drizzle with a little olive oil, just enough to coat the pieces. I like to mix with my hands so I can feel that all the pieces are covered.
Since I was serving with taco soup I seasoned the shells with taco seasoning. Sprinkle with your favorite spices or herbs then toss again. I also tried it with cinnamon sugar and served with ice cream! Oh, my goodness!!!!!
Broil for three minutes (but keep your eye on them because every oven is different) Toss gently then broil for another 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

I put them on the mantel along with a few other decorations for a beautiful display. I could not wait each evening to light the candles and the little trees. The Merry Christmas sign was a deal at Sams, the week before Christmas it was marked down the just $4.61!
- 15-17 lb Brisket
- ! bunch Celery
- 2 Large Onions
- Garlic Salt (enough to cover both sides)
BBQ Sauce Ingredients
Mix together and warm in microwave for 2 minutes. Let sit until ready to baste meat.
- Briskets have a lot of fat, don't be afraid of that because the fat give it flavoring as it cooks and keep it from drying out.
- If you have a large pad of fat you can always peel it away after its finished cooking and before adding BBQ sauce.
