  • Great thoughts, Chris!

    I was recently in Haiti (Mar 1-10) and witnessed extraordinary acts of bravery and survival while there. For most Haitians, life is a struggle to survive each and every day. Not knowing when or where your next meal will come is something the people of Haiti deal with constantly. The mass graves on the outskirts of PaP, with their smell and black water running away from them....it punches a person in the gut and heart and makes you realize just how fortunate we are in the U.S.!

    I have had people challenge me about why I needed to go to Haiti when we have hurting people right here in Greene County. My first question to them was : Are YOU helping those people.....if the answer is yes, then we'll talk. If not, come back and see me when you gain some experience to which you are talking about! Some are called to help their "close neighbors" and some are called to help those in distant lands! We all are children of GOD and everyone is deserving of help and love.
