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.

A Real Little Angel in Heaven

See this moving video of "Alicia", who became a real Little Angel the week before last. I truly believe that she knew where she was going, and that nothing would hold her back. Thank you Rhyan, for creating this production in memory of a beautiful and beloved baby.



Those of you who know me know I have a huge heart for children infected with and affected by the AIDS virus. My sympathies are with those who grieve for Alicia; I lost some precious babies to AIDS, when I worked in South Africa.

I am sure that 50 years from now, our churches will be judged on what they are doing, here and now, in response to the global HIV pandemic. Our children and grand-children will ask us to explain why, if we knew what was happening, we did nothing. My own experiences with AIDS infected children and adults have taught me that this cruel virus strikes indiscriminately. Please consider what God is leading you to do. Won't you at least pray?

Please thank Rhyan for allowing us to share a little of this precious child.

My thoughts are with all who are grieving for her.

Rest in peace little one.
