One would think that going back to a place of destruction would be farthest from my mind, but think otherwise. I'm headed back March 20th with a team of about 20, okay 21, maybe 22...the number keeps changing...but a big team none the less. Half medical, a few lay support and the rest pastoral/counseling. We're going to Port au Prince to work in the camps, then towards the end of the week, part of the team heads up to Cap Haitian for continued work there. When we return, we leave for India 6 weeks later.

So what do we expect? Cholera, dysentery, infected wounds, malnutrition, and post traumatic psychological issues. We'll be doing medical clinics in the camps, where people are living under sheets and tarps with no toilet facilities and the rainy season starting. The pastoral/grief counseling team will be doing just that: pastoring and counseling. But for right now, I need your help...there are a lot of loose ends still to be tied and things to come into place. So, if you have a second or 2, close your eyes and say a little prayer for us. And if you are so inclined, feel free to keep going for as long as you like. Because after all, there but for the grace of God, go And as always,

In all things give thanks,
