I arrived home from my 4th trip to haiti 6 weeks ago. On this trip I saw the destruction from the earthquake and drove through areas that are now fighting cholera. Each time I go, I realize how much more helping other people positively affects me and how much less “stuff” I really need. It has brought that much more of a new perspective and new thankfulness to my heart.
- My wife Laura — she supports me 100%, sacrifices her time, and takes the risk of having me in Haiti. Without her support and encouragement it would be near impossible for me to go.
- Bob Keesee — Bob started Raincatchers, the organization I go to Haiti with. Without his heart for the people of Haiti and starting this organization, I would not have this new perspective. I would not understand that water is life.
