Several months back I started to feel like God was moving me towards something much bigger than myself. I really didn't know exactly what that was until one week at Church I read a statistic from Compassion International about the number of kids that die from not having clean water. I can't completely explain what that did to me inside but reading that really messed with my head....something is just wrong with children not having clean water ya know. Clean water or anything related to bacic survival is not something my children have ever had to think about. I asked myself..."what am I going to do about IT?" When we got home from church I asked my kids what these 3rd world children "needed". ....later...in contrast I asked what our family "needed". Nobody wanted to talk about it any more with the stark realization that our "needs" are a bit embarrassing. I told that story to a good friend and he invited me to pray about going with him to Haiti in March 2018. I still am not 100% why Haiti or what exactly I'm supposed to do there but I do know I'm supposed to go, and I am supposed to do something. I plan to go and work and serve and investigate what we can do to help meet the needs in Haiti. I'll be traveling with a group called Learning to hope in Haiti. The reality is that I'm scared in many ways. Most of those worries are financial. We really can not afford to miss a week of work on top of paying for air fair, travel , and the numerous expenses involved in a trip like this. I know that several of you know my heart and my background in ministry. I would love your help in making this happen if you feel compelled. Shoot.. I'm just excited that you read this far! Thank you for considering helping me out in this tremendous way. I am an incredibly blessed person to have so many compassionate friends and I thank you in advance for joining me in this!
