Marvensley fought hard but is in the arms of Jesus now!

Marvensley fought really hard and tried to live.  Lisa was by his side for every hour he struggled.  Sometimes, our role is to be the loving arms that support the little ones and the soft touch that follow them into forever.  I struggled with this for many years. We prayed, we fought, we struggled with them, and still they weren't healed.  It took me a long time and many wise words from others who had struggled with these little ones long before I came to Haiti, to learn that sometimes God puts them with us, not to "save" them, but to love them into forever...

So Marvensley, we loved you into the arms of God.  If we could have done something to "save" you, we would have and we did try!  But this was one of those time when our role was just to love you into forever... 

Marvensley died on Sunday morning at 4:15 AM.

Some are suppose to be saved, some just go back to Jezus, without suffering nomore..
We just do not want to loose them, but knowing there went to heaven keeps us going on.
Respect Dixi!

So Sorry for the loss of this child. I admire how you have dedicated your life to these precious ones. Thankyou, for being Gods hands to this little one it was such a blessing that you were there with him in his final hours to care and love him. We will never understand on earth always why God allows children to die it is all part of his greater plan that we can not always understand or imagine someday in heaven he will allow full understanding. God loves you and is I am sure very happy with all that you are doing for his children here on earth.
