From the kids right up to the adults I was struck by the golden hearts of each generation. On a walk we went we met a young man named James, he was 19 years old and in his last year of high school. There are a few things about James that stood out to me. First, his English was terrific and this allowed me to really learn more about him and hear a bit of his story.

Lake Ridge Community Church
Jeff, Aquaculture expert/Lake Ridge staff member has inspired a real sense of community with the farmers who are participating in the Aquaculture project. We are discovering every pond has a story. Most recently, a new young man who was passionate about aquaculture and wanted to start a pond, but did not have enough money to own land.
Well I’m not even sure how to begin a follow up post like this one. How about this, you never get to choose when your heart will be broken, again, again. Two years ago, on one of my trips to Haiti a little boy with diabetes captured my heart and then promptly broke it. I blogged about it at the time (read the story) and have thought often about that little guy.
Today the gasoline shortage came to an end and it was also the only day we travelled on foot and stayed in the Haute Limbe area, ironically. The university is making progress and the nursing pond is being filled up with water as I write this entry.
It’s hard to believe its already the middle of the week...time does not slow down here in Haiti either. Today was a very productive day. The fuel shortage is still on and since we have already mastered the “Tap Tap” it was time to try something new. We started off on a three wheel motor vehicle which I won’t go into detail about, but as we drove away, Dr Manno could not stop laughing. I’m pretty sure I heard him whisper under his breath, “they are crazy” under."
