My dad is an amazing guy. I'm not just saying that because I'm his daughter. I'm saying it because it's the truth. He has a servants heart and continuously gives of himself. Ask anyone who knows him. They will agree.
Daddy recently had an opportunity cross his desk to take a "job" in Haiti operating heavy equipment and demolishing uninhabitable buildings. They then separate the metal and concrete to "make" roads to towns who have been isolated from civilization due to the horrible earthquakes. He jumped on the opportunity. God showed him a need and Daddy jumped. I love it. I love the entire story of why and how he has chosen to leave us for 3 months to work for pennies in a plague and war infested country.
There is a possibility that he would be leaving for a total of 15 months. If Salvation Purse likes Daddy and the work he does, they will more than likely offer him an additional 12 month contract, which Daddy would probably accept. I'm going to miss him, but I'm proud of him and respect his decision to give back to others, so I support and praise his efforts.
I love you Daddy and I pray that your trip is safe and rewarding. I pray that you will leave your footprints on roads less travelled. I pray that you will impress others with your humor, generosity and love while you visit this sad depressing country. I pray that you will find simplicity and love in the eyes of the nation and they will welcome you with open arms. Have a fantastic trip!
