This will be quick. I’m totally beat after a 19 hour day that started in Haiti and ended in Minneapolis. From sun and 90 to dark and snow. Truly a blessed day.
It was my great honor to be part of a mission team that spent a week in Port-au-Prince. A week filled with miracles of healing, bonding, excitement, and spiritual warfare. I love each of those people more than my tired little brain can express right now.
Before I go to bed, I want to thank Russ and Dave, our leaders. Elisa, Gates, and Michael who made our trip special with their kindness and joy in our presence. Here’s our mission blog if you’d like to read what we wrote. I contributed a few days, but these folks can write, minister, and love with the best of them.
A special nod goes to our drivers and translators. God blessed us all with these men. They protected us from the utterly insane traffic (more on that later) and the dangers that accompany working in some of the poorest neighborhoods in the world. They were in competition with our beloved house staff for their kindness and outstanding food and service. Not a single member of Healing Haiti that we worked with was less than superb.
I love that place. I brought back a piece of it tonight, and left a big hunk of me behind, waiting for the next trip.
Pictures, stories, and more love to follow. But right now I stink and I have cuts and bruises to tend to before bed. Nothing major. Just some scrapes with the earth of a land I am growing to be a part of in this life.
God bless Haiti. God bless the United States of America. God bless you for reading my blog.
Now, time for a bar of Lava and some sleep.

I have a favor to ask of my readers: would you kindly share this blog with your friends, family, and colleagues? We hit a million views in 2014, and while the readership continues a nice growth trend, it could be a lot better. Just hit the Facebook like button, share it on your timeline, tweet the blog with a link, and tell that person at the next desk that there’s this lunatic who writes about all sorts of stuff that they might like.
I appreciate your help. When we hit 2,000,000 readers I will give away something cool to a drawing from the subscribers (that’s the box on the right toward the top) who have helped promote this mess. No used sheets, probably not honey, more likely gift cards. Be a part of it. I’ll update from time to time where we’re at in the count. Thanks.
