It has been the most breathless time in my life…getting ready for Team Two to arrive on the ground the last week of February.
I don’t know how it would be possible without the overwhelming help from so many of you and so many others, all over the world. I wish I could thank each of you personally, but hold every single act of kindness…
Every kiss from every child on a donated blanket (this is a real story). Every single email sent on our behalf, the soup dropped off at my house…
EVERY BIT OF LOVE…
In the center of my heart.
I am on the phone daily to Haiti and am carrying stories in me that will never be able to leave my body.
Those of us…ALL OF US…you included…who do this work…are changed forever.
I keep saying, and it is true…
I have run out of ways to say thank you. It is now just a hum in my heart that I hope you can feel and hear.
I am attaching the first Haiti field report, just out last night on the 1 month anniversary of the earthquake. There were processions all day long, with singing. As I was talking to Robin last night, a procession of 200 people filed by with candles, on the way to the school next door, which collapsed and killed 290 students. She just held the phone away from her ear so we could listen together. Then we just cried.
Bless every one of you who have helped. Please send this email to everyone.
The Olympics will keep people from remembering the Haitian people. Please help us keep the work remembered.
I love you all,
