In Septemeber 2008, I traveled 6000 miles to Haiti's Kenscoff mountains. My mission: to care for some of the orphaned and abandoned, the sick, malnourished and premature infants of this beautiful but beleagured Caribbean nation.

It's all relative...

On Tuesday, I learnt that I would not be able to receive mail while I am in Haiti.

The national postal service there is completely unreliable, so God's Littlest Angels uses a private (missionary) organisation to manage their mail. However, I have been told that they will not provide a service to me because I am catholic.

I could argue the point that the organisation's position is unbiblical, but I doubt that this would affect the outcome.

The thought of not being able to receive snail mail or care packages while I am gone made me feel pretty low, not to mention indignant! What, no Christmas presents!!

Then, I learnt something that made me realise how small this sacrifice really is...

I would be honored to bring you a care package, if I'm fortunate enough to be there while you are in Haiti. I know others would feel the same way. Don't be shy about letting us know of your favorite treats.
