We're Staying Longer -- Part II - September 25

In addition to the entry I posted earlier today, here is the latest.

We are checking possible flights to places other than through Miami. Mike is checking on New York, Houston, etc. The weather news suggests that we MIGHT not get out until Monday, but we are doing all we can to come home as soon as possible!

We definitely have the hotel rooms for the night, so that is not going to be a problem.

I just talked to a very young Canadian reporter. He was in Grenada on assignment and was sent here to Haiti to cover the mudslides in the Northern parts of the country. He was very distraught. "I've never seen anything like it," he kept saying, as he talked about walking in waist-deep water and seeing corpses float by.

Whatever discomfort or inconvenience we are experiencing is nothing. The weather here is great, and as I said in the earlier entry, we are safe.

As a reminder to the Good Shepherd folks -- don't forget that tonight is the kick off for the Forty Days of Purpose! Unless you are stuck in a foreign country, you probably have no excuse to miss tonight's program :)

See you soon!

Thanks for all these reports!! We never hear about the work in Haiti and I've always wondered what goes on there. Maybe I'll go next year!
