A few more photographs from my second day in Haiti
(Sunday 1/10/10)with the team of college students
from George Mason University with The Gathering -
the college ministry of McLean Bible Church.

These were all taken after our Vacation Bible School
program with the children of the neighborhood - we
shared the story of the Good Samaritan:

Luke 10:30-37
A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when
he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him
of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him
half dead.
A priest happened to be going down the
same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on
the other side.
So too, a Levite, when he came to
the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.

But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man
was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil
and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took
him to an inn and took care of him.
The next day he
took out two silver coins
and gave them to the
innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I
return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense
you may have.'

"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to
the man who fell into the hands of robbers?"

The expert in the law replied, "The one who had mercy
on him." Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."

A Fresh Start

My first posts will be with regard to my trip to
Haiti (1/9 through 1/18) and my experience of the
earthquake on January 12, 2010 there. I will share
photos and stories that I hope will bring you to a
point of desiring to act towards helping others and
setting time aside to pray for people who have
so little right now and are in need of so much.
