The excitement builds as we get ready to pick up the team at the airport. My heart is full of gratitude to so many who have made this trip possible – I won’t list names because there are sooo many to list. Thanks to the medical team members for their selfless giving of time and talent, to those who wanted to go but did not make it this time – There is still more work to be done, and there will be more trips to look forward to – , to the co-workers back home who filled in and went the extra mile, to the buyers and packers of medical supplies and food, to the media who got the word out and are still keeping Haiti in the news, to those who thought of and prayed for all involved – Wow, that power of prayer is amazing! – , to the generous givers who shared so much – plane, world phone, financial contributions, medical supplies, etc., etc., – , to those who followed the blog even with so little info. coming in. I hope the team members will continue to share their experiences here. Stay tuned for more news on future trips!
A huge thank you goes out to the Haitian people for singing praises simply for having life even while losing families, homes, limbs, what little they had. What physical and emotional trauma they have to deal with. The newsmakers, rioters, and looters are in the minority. The majority of the people are gentle, kind, hard-working, respectful, and resourceful. The beauty of the mountains, water, and people is indescribable. Once you’ve been there, the people capture your heart! Welcome home! Paula
