What going to Haiti is all about

This photo pretty much sums it up. It was taken when we were meeting with Lena and talking about getting a house built for her and her family. After we chatted for a while, we all prayed -- our teammates, Desir (the Haitian who will be the project manager), and Lena. The joining of hands says "we are in this together," the roughness of the table suggests earthiness and simplicity, and the posture of our hands expresses that before any shovels get picked up or hammers get swung, we stop to thank God for his generosity.
