"Ask not what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive...then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

We had a great time with family and friends in Minneapolis.  I have been somewhat surprised at  how much I miss everyone - more than I ever thought I would!  The instant we left the airport back in Port au Prince, though, we were reminded how important it is for us to be here right now.  Lives are starting to be rebuilt and many days feel like business as usual.  When you see it day after day it can start to feel like normal.  Leaving and coming back are all you need to view it with fresh eyes and remember that people really shouldn't live like this anywhere in the world.  

So, for now we'll continue our work here and look forward to visits with everyone when we can.  We've been very luck in life and feel incredibly fortunate that we can give back right now.  We really appreciate the support from everyone!
