I have arrived in West Palm Beach for the evening
and then we leave out at 5:30 in the morning on a
private transport for Port o Prince. It is so nice
to get a little information from our team leader
this noon that you will see attached below. I
accepted this assignment with Blind Faith when my
friend Carlos Lavernia sent me an email about 5 PM
Tuesday basically saying he had a plane leaving on
Friday morning out of Miami and he wanted me on it.
I sent him a quick email
back saying yes and that is all I knew until today
regarding who I would be going with and where we
were headed. The adventure begins. We have a variety
of people from all over coming together on our team,
none of whom I know but several of whom are from
Haiti. It seems a bit surreal as I go from this
beautiful place of West Palm Beach to a place of
devastation in Haiti. We will be working out of two
collapsed hospitals but in a relatively safe area of
town compared to others. I will try to keep you
posted as best I can but otherwise I will update you
when I return next Saturday.
Thank you all for you kind words, thoughts and
prayers and a Special Thanks to my friend Tuck for
all the food supplements and help he provided.
No need to respond to my emails since I will have
limited time. I know you are all behind us.
Love to all and God Bless.
