What Next?

I have been leaving teasers and hints for some time now about how frustrated I have felt regarding my ill-preparedness in leveraging the human resource that I have been blessed with to good effectiveness. I have been working hard in the background of all this earthquake and blog stuff at stepping up my game in this regard and am ready to reveal just what it is I'm up to.

I leave for Haiti this afternoon, gone for just a week this time, home next Sunday. I plan on returning to the field hospital where I can help out a few days. (I just received an email from a doctor friend of mine who said that they had been treating nearly 600 patients a day there!). But mostly I'll be working on my next phase... Can you say "teaser?" I knew you could. Seriously though, it is not my intention to make a big melodrama out of the big reveal. I won't string it out and will, over the next several communiques, tell you all about it.

During my time in Haiti this week I will be writing and would love to post a blog daily. But internet access will be very iffy this time around, so if you don't see a post any certain day, keep coming back. I AM WRITING, and will get them up first time I get a chance.

Continue to pray for Haiti. Word is that 300,000 people have now perished as a result of the earthquake. This number continues to rise.

More tomorrow, from precious Haiti.

I will be praying for you this week, Steve, as you are in Haiti. Sure would like to be going with you! My mind is constantly filled with the visuals of the people we saw and worked with there in Petit Goave. If you see Pastor Lionel Louis, the pastor who led the Brigade, please tell him I've told his story over and over and continue to pray for him and his family. He is very close to my heart!

Blessings in your travels, Doc!

Praying for you and those you are and even those you are not able to serve there.

Looking forward to learn about Starfish as it develops. I'm interested in getting involved and helping too.

You inspire me to become more like Jesus.

O Lord, my strength, make my life a daily witness, declaring in word, deed, and attitude that Jesus is alive. Lord, my own abilities will never be sufficient to accomplish this. So,I humbly pray, empower me by Your Holy Spirit, in Jesus' name, Amen.
