The Beginnings - A Little History

Bonjour! or Bonswa!, (Depending on the time of day)

This is the first of many entries. I intend to use this blog as a site to journal, plan, think aloud, share and just babble. After having visited Haiti in 2007 on a short term mission, I am infatuated with it. It is a land of contradiction. So much beauty amidst so much poverty and suffering. My naive American nature cannot grasp that this country is a mere 600 miles off the coast of Florida yet it's like stepping back in time. I'll share some statistics in future posts, however I would imagine that most who take the time to read this blog are similar to me in that they've already immersed themselves in all things Haiti. More to come shortly. Thanks for reading.
