WHAT are we working on???
Along with love, compassion is the face of altruism. It is a feeling from deep in the heart that you cannot bear others’ suffering without acting to relieve it. As compassion grows stronger, so does your willingness to commit yourself to the welfare of all beings, even if you have to do it alone. You will be unbiased in your service to all beings, no matter how they respond to you. Our next trip is October/November 2017!

BACK TO REALITY!~
WE are home from Haiti! I always hope that it will get easier to transition into life in the USA, but each time is just as difficult as the last. We are so thankful we were able to help in HAITI. Thank you for all of your love and support. Even long after we have left the country we are still thinking and praying for our friends in Haiti and continually ask ourselves how we can help more the next time we go!
This beautiful lady walked hours to come and see us. She was in pain throughout her body..mostly her joints. She could not figure out why she was in so much discomfort. She had been farming since the time she was 7 and she was now in her 60's. Her joints were swollen, her skin like leather. She had a couple massive calluses on her hands....about an inch thick. This is where she braced her hoe for farming......
Amazing people with amazing strength!!
It was sure nice to see a relatively healthy and hydrated baby girl!!! These eyes penetrated by soul~
I love this picture!! This little boy was so sick!! ? typhoid, malaria, HIV?
