Media and Gratitude
The airport is an insane place right now. There does not seem to be any system of order. Troy and the other men that are full time here in Haiti have been doing work getting supplies and people off of little private planes and has been able to stand and observe the madness. None of the little organizations know how to get supplies from the big guys ... the whole system (or lack thereof) is frustrating.
I am glad the media has given Haiti some attention and hopefully that makes people CARE and want to GIVE and ACT - but the ones that never leave the airport and report from the tarmac are just in the way and taking up valuable space and adding to the chaos. Plus, I am hearing the story is no longer getting much attention - that it has dropped to the bottom of the news cast - which is sad, because the story has only just begun.
A personal thank you to each of you that have supported Troy and I for the last four years. Your love has gone the distance and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Another debt of gratitude for all the gifts that have come in - in recent days. The response has touched us and your love is felt by all of us ... thank you - thank you - thank you.
We are putting them to use on the ground and if you know of others that want to give please direct them to:
