its late and i’m tired

I don’t have the energy to write anything of much substance today.  I am leaving for Port au Prince in the morning at 2:45am.  I am going with a caravan of other missionaries.  We are going in to try and help bring some of the refugees into Cayes who can’t afford to get here.  There will be our big F250, a bus, a couple other large pick-ups and perhaps a tap-tap.  But today was a busy, busy day and I am exhausted.  I’ll update you more tomorrow.

Pray for us and for our safety.  I don’t say that because I am worried.  From what we hear from some journalists who were there since the 14th, Port is safe and in the areas that weren’t destroyed life is slowly moving back in. There is gas in Port, banks have reopened, buses are coming and going.  People are far from ‘moving on’ but life has to go on.  People have to try and make a living and carve out an existence for themselves.   I’m looking forward to the day.

-Signing out.
