So much has changed in the ten years since I last visited Haiti. For starters, the airport is so much more organized. I didn’t have to fight off nearly as many people attempting to “help” me with my bags. And our luggage wasn’t immediately taken off the conveyor belt a...

For the past three months, I have had very limited mobility. I have a couple of pinched nerves in my back. It has been a long recovery full of physical therapy and pain meds, with the goal to be able to walk 2-3 miles per day. During PT I couldn't walk more than a mile...

Our last day in Haiti. Time pack and repack, trying to get balance the weight. A lovely breakfast of eggs, tomatoes, pineapple and juice, coffee with cream and brown cane sugar to follow, all over a slight debrief.

So many sights and sounds, faces etched...

Saturday has its traditions. For many years, we have used it for R&R before the day long journey home. So after a final chat with a group from San Antonio over a leisurely breakfast, we finished packing. Our the first attempt to make weight didn't make it. We were movi...

Yesterday we had a series of interesting meetings, starting with an invitation extended to the gentlemen at Reno Cafe to join our table. My kids have always been a bit embarrassed by my habit of starting up conversations with strangers, just about anywhere. Jason Good,...

What a wonderful day the Lord blessed us with today.

We started the morning with a peaceful rest. I slept hard. They had to wake me for breakfast. The morning's cold shower was not frigid. The breakfast was not hot (a trade off for sleep). But the conversation was delig...

Another day, another long and dusty road. But many blessings along the way. After a bit of disappointment -- we were not able to close the deal on the land this week -- we left Hinche this morning and did another bank transaction at Unibank for payroll. I invited every...

Wednesday began with the singing of the peacocks. I might have slept through the rooster. Then came the gobble gobble of the turkeys, followed by a not so raring version of happy birthday for Tricia at breakfast. It brought tears to her eyes, but we really don't know w...

Why did the chicken cross the road? To get run over. We almost ran over several chickens driving to and from the farm today.

Being in Haiti after 10 years is strange. A lot has changed but a lot of it feels the same. Like the humidity and the undrinkable water.

Our first...

It depends on how you look at things. Sunday and most of Monday was spent traveling, but we had great encounters along the way.

I spent the last leg of our journey to Haiti talking with a man and his daughter, who were returning home after a few days of fundraising in G...
