My mom is in Haiti now working on the island of La Gonave doing clinical work. She went with a small missions team from our church - some medical, some handy[wo]men. They left last Thursday and should return late Saturday evening. I haven't heard anything and I'm assuming no news is good news. Right??
Since she's gone I went to visit Dad and Grandmom yesterday. I sat with Grandmom while she was eating dinner, and I checked her trash, mail, etc. Then I went home and found dishes, handwashed, drying on the counter, and clean laundry folded on the couch. Impressive. :) Then I laid on the big comfy couch and watched an hour and a half of Game Show Network with Dad.
I'm excited to see her and hear her stories when she returns, AND to see what she bought me. :) Maybe it's an elephant for my international elephant collection??
Update from Mary, who is with Mom in Haiti::"well, your mom is doing great and keeping really busy and making me laugh, too!! please be praying, though, because several of the rest of the team have been ill."
