The outpouring of help and interest in my trips to Haiti is amazing to me. I want to thank everyone who is involved on whatever level in the previous and upcoming trip. My parents especially need to be thanked. The May 9th trip is at their urging, coming from their distress that we know people who are living outside in the heat and rain. My father Morty, was animate that we do some thing to help. On Saturday my father went to Lyme Hardware and talked with them, from this conversation Lyme Hardware has agreed to sell us 100 tarps at their cost, a little over $ 4.00 each! Also a big thank you needs to go to my mother Kathy, and her siblings who all came together to cover the airfare and travel portion of this trip. I love you all!
What we are doing is helping people at the ground level, in a very human way and caring way. My trips and missions into Bercy, Haiti will continue from year to come and I will make sure that everyone involved is able to see the affects that their “hands up” not hand outs, have done for the people of Bercy. It really proves what I have been saying, one person can’t help a country (in fact is seems that a large NGO can’t) but one person can help a village. One person who spreads the word of need to many others and brings all those people together to help with a hand up. We have seen the need and we are doing something.
Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. James 4:17
