A Slow Re-Entry from Haiti - This One Hurt

P1010941web_prayer.jpg

I've never really had to deal with this before. To be honest, I've had a difficult time bouncing back from Haiti. Usually when I come back from a deployment I just bounce back. This time I have been in a bit of a funk. I'm really not sure why. Perhaps it was the amount of gruesome physical trauma that I saw. In any case, sorry that I've not been writing more. I do feel like I'm getting back now and I plan to increase my writing and I'm still planning to do a web/telephone meeting in the very near future. I will put a notice up as soon as I nail down a date and time. I just returned yesterday from a Board meeting for Children of the Nations. It was so exciting to hear what is going on in the lives of our kids. We have kids in Sierra Leone, Malawi, Uganda, The Dominican Republic and now in Haiti. The stories are amazing! I will share some of these in the days to come.

Tomorrow I'm going to meet our Governor to receive an award for our work in Haiti. It really seems strange to get an award. All I wanted to do was help. The way I figure it, God reached out to love me and heal me; it is the least I can do for others.

PS. I went to TyeDye Everything when I was in Idaho and got some new bamboo TyeDye socks! They always feel new. Happy Feet=Happy Head.
