Haiti, How I Miss You!

It is so hard to believe I have already been back from Haiti for several weeks. It truly was a life changing trip. Sometimes when trips like that have such an impact it is hard to come home and know what to do. But what I have come to realize is that even though the trip changed much about my perspective and my view on the excess in my here does still need to go on.

I can make changes and I can pray for and love the people of Haiti but I also need to keep things going here. Sitting around longing to go back really accomplishes nothing. I can make it a goal but still need to do the things I need to do.

Does that make sense? Just thought I would put it out there in case someone else has come off a life changing experience and now doesn't know what to do next. Just do the next thing. Whatever that is. Right where God has you at this moment.

One thing that I have found amazing this year is how God has used my "Radical Revival" time and my study of the book of James and my trip to truly give me a heart of compassion and burning desire to do something about all the poverty that surrounds me. Whether that is here or in Haiti.

 I will leave you with one of my favorite pics from the trip!

 Have a blessed day!
