Tomorrow night I leave on the “red-eye” to JFK airport. I will arrive in Port-Au-Prince at 10 am on Saturday. Because of limited amount of electricity at MPP, I am not sure if I will be able to send any notes next week—although I will be writing them in my journal. When I return I will update the blog, plus pictures and video.
Our leaders sent us a series of emails this morning. “First, some exciting news! We will be visiting another UUSC partner, APROSIFA, on Sunday May 11 before we leave Port-au-Prince! We’ll have the opportunity to tour their facility, including their medical clinic and art studio for youth, where we’ll have the chance to purchase paintings and sculptures (some about $100, some for under). Then we’ll have brunch at their restaurant, a project called Chefs for Kids, before heading to MPP!”
She also mentioned a series of videos the UUSC recently produced on tire garden construction.
On another topic I wanted to mention that I have continued my daily spiritual practice. Jeannie Shero, my 1st U minister has given me some daily reflections. The list includes some familiar names- Mary Sarton, Howard Thurman, Thomas Merton to name a few.
Thanks to all for your support.
