Upon hearing the news that twenty-three of forty families are living in the Village of Joy, I contacted Food for the Poor to schedule a trip. I want to see it for myself and to gather the stories of the families whose lives have forever been changed. I want to share their stories with you--to let you see for yourself the impact you are having in the lives of the poorest of the poor.
I have been awaiting news regarding whether Food for the Poor could take me the week of February 29th. This week I heard back. Due rioting and violence over the country's presidential elections (Read More), Food for the Poor put all trips to Haiti on hold. Most likely this means I will have to wait until after the election in April, and it is deemed safe to travel again. I am disappointed about the delay, but I certainly understand its necessity. Perhaps, by the time I get to go, there will be more than twenty-three families whose stories I will need to tell. I pray that is the case!
