Leaving for Haiti tonight!

This is an entirely new thing for the Becks, going as a family on a major mission trip. I'm not sure what to expect. But I know this. If we want to see great things happen in and through us, it helps to put ourselves in situations where need is great. And in Haiti, need is truly great. It is beyond great. It's overwhelming. There is no country in the Western world more wracked with poverty and corruption. Yet Haitians are captivatingly hospitable and receptive. So, not knowing how this trip is going to affect us, here we go. Into the fray. Into the gripping paradox that is Haiti.

"He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone" (Ps 91:11-12).
