"Mommy ... why do you have to go to Haiti?," my 7-year-old tearfully asked the evening before I left. My 11-year-old daughter tenderly placed her rosary into the palm of my hand. "Here mom ... please take my rosary with you on your trip to Haiti," she said. Their comments and gestures really tugged at my heart-strings as I continued to pack my bags for my return trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Afterall, my husband and children mean so much to me and it is hard to leave them. However, as I arrived in Haiti, I knew I was right where God wanted me to be, and I am prepared to do what God wants me to do this week to serve those in extreme poverty. I can't wait to see what this week will bring. Small sacrifices with a huge reward.
