Our daughter Sarah is leading a missions trip to Haiti this week for her Spring Break. She’s been to Haiti twice now and Nicaragua once during her four years at college. Just yesterday, I picked up a Mary Knoll Magazine with a story about Haiti and the aftermath of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti several years back — killing nearly 300,000 people and leaving millions in even more desperate straits than they were already in. As just one example, a woman’s husband died in the quake. She was now alone — with eight children. Sarah is going to work with people like this. She’s going to try to make their lives a little bit better, while showing the light of Christ. What a phenomenal “First Kid” she’d make, huh. Actually, she’s pretty phenomenal right now, First Kid, or not. Note: Some Hatians came here after the earthquake, but recently there have been news stories their time will soon be up and they will have to go back to Haiti. These are people, many of them, who have gotten jobs, places to live, their kids have schools, friends… And we’re going to send them back into the poorest country in the western hemisphere? Are we spiritually nuts? For more on a foreign relations paradigm that would be a lot more spiritually sane than we have now, see our position paper on foreign affairs.
