Let’s see if technology is going to be my friend or foe this trip!!!! So far, so good. As some of you are aware, it was an epic fail last time. This will be a learn as you go experience, since I’m using WordPress for the first time on a new phone. Just hang with me, good bad or ugly, and I’ll get some posts on the blog!

We are safe and sound at the Hands and feet project, Grand Goave, Haiti. I’ll give you more details later, after I make sure this is going to work!

This is my 5th trip to Haiti since the earthquake of January 2010. That event, disaster, tragedy or calamity, what ever you want to call it, changed this country in so many ways. But despite the destruction and loss of life, Haitians persevere. Each time I come, I see progress.

That by the way is one of the most asked questions. Is it any better? I always start my answer with, ‘By American standards……’. We are so use to quick answers, immediate response and visible progress, that if we aren’t careful, we miss the progress. But pay attention, look closely, and you’ll see, little by little, Haiti is moving forward.

It’s the same when we ask God to help us. We want a quick fix, immediate results. We don’t want to have to wait. We want what we want, when we want it. But, as in Haiti, that’s not how it works with God. God uses time to open our eyes, soften or edges, and teach us a few things. So be patient, have faith, learn from the Haitian people, and the answers and blessings will come!
