I am sitting in the dark by candlelight writing this post. We have not had electricity for sometime. Carmel often reminds me that this is the way of life in Haiti. No electricity means not only no light but no water. I am reminded once again how blessed I am not to have to worry will I have water to take a shower or brush my teeth and this is a daily struggle that the Haitian people face. Once again, they have shown me that this is just life and life continues without light…
Smokin' for Mission: Students Plan BBQ Competition to support Episcopal Relief & Development
On February 2, the community at Seminary of the Southwest will gather for an afternoon of fun-filled BBQ competition at the seminary campus. The teams have been preparing for weeks, honing their BBQ skills around the grill and are now ready to show each other who the real grill masters of the seminary really are!
The best part of the event: all of the profits from the event are going directly to support the mission of Episcopal Relief & Development!

We have not had Internet for several days and this has been particularly hard on me. I need to be able to communicate with my family. Kellaura has been so encouraging and I am so thankful to have her here with me. I hope that we have access soon.

Today we had the privilege of attending a Eucharist in honor of the 3rd Anniversary of the earthquake. It is good to see progress after three years, but there is so much to be done. What remains of the Cathedral, Holy Trinity still stands and the ruble has not been removed. A very nice temporary structure has been built, but I miss the beautiful art work that gave such life to Holy Trinity.

Jimmie has been the driver for Carmel and Pere Val since at least 2007 when I first came to Haiti. He is gracious, sweet, and is always looking out for me. When I went to the mountains of Crochu and had to hike up, he helped me the entire way.
What are the kids' sports leagues like? Catch any good baseball games?
Rod, thank you for your question. I have actually been concerned about the lack of extra curricular activities that the children here in Haiti have. There are no sporting events to attend, no sports to play, very few concerts to attend, no movies, and the list goes on and on.
