Apologies for Being AWOL

I’ve been in Haiti for two weeks, and the Internet, when present at all (certainly not every day) never really had a signal strong enough to post to the blog–I tried but the “in progress” symbol would spin and spin and then cut out as the signal died, often for the rest of the day or more.

I’ll have more to say about all this soon, but wanted to share a photo. This has been my family for the past 2 weeks–the 28 boys who live at the Trinity House orphanage in Jacmel, Haiti, we five volunteers, and the few adults who support, teach, and live with the boys. Amazing people, each and every one of them, and an honor to know.

  2. Andrew, I can’t wait to hear about this! It sounds like an incredible experience that I am sure you will write beautifully about.

    Thanks for sharing all of the valuable information you take part in and research.

    You and others like you are inspirations to us all to get off our butts and do something for others. To stop being selfish and self-centered. I recognize a need for a purpose and your [to be told] story gives me another kick in the pants.

    Thanks

    A buddy e-mailed this link the other day and I will be desperately hoping for your next page. Carry on on the fine work.
