KJ’s favorites were a toy cell phone from her brother and a baby doll & teddy bear from grandparents. Trey was predictably pumped about LEGOs and books. Heidi got some new athletic wear for our hikes and frisbee playing. William got more coffee & coffee accessories.
I thought this guy was a great example of typical dancing in a smock at Mamprusi cultural events.
KJ’s grown a lot since last December so we needed to update our family’s prayer card with a new photo.
You can download a hi-res version printable 4×6 version of the card via this link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11065998/2015-Haun-Family-Photo/haun-family-prayer-card-2017.jpg

Every year we do a little timelapse video of our Christmas decoration. In the past they were simply recorded on my laptop’s webcam. This year the process got a high tech upgrade and is now a 360 degree, 4K video. Have fun spinning around in circles to keep up with the action!

I took my friend Mattis to the Scarp and we hiked over to a new point. It allowed for a nice walk along the edge of the cliffs.
We are honored to be one of the IMB’s featured missionary families for this year’s International Week of Prayer. You can see all the families’ features from around the world on the IMB website. Here is a short article from imb.org about our ministry:
The Haun Family Story
It was near midnight when IMB missionary Dr. Heidi Haun had finished up an abdominal surgery and returned home. Her baby, Karen Jane, and son, Trey, 10, had long been in bed under the watchful eye of her husband, William.
The Hauns serve in Nalerigu, Ghana, and her patient was a woman who sells cabbages under a mango tree on market days in town. Heidi had planned to perform surgery earlier in the day, but the operation was delayed by an emergency cesarean section. Still, after surgery that night, Heidi said the woman reached out to grasp her hand and thank her.
“I think that’s the neatest thing about having patients that live here in town…it leads to opportunities for relationship and gospel sharing,” Heidi explained. “I look forward to the opportunity to share Christ with her—more than just a patient-doctor relationship.”
- PRAY for wisdom and strength for the national medical staff and administration of the Baptist Medical Centre as they serve an overwhelming number of patients every day.
- PRAY Heidi and William will manage time wisely to avoid exhaustion and burnout as they work their time-consuming jobs in surgery and media.
