If you are a Secret Post subscriber then you already know that I'm taking an important trip in April. I'm honored to be part of the blogger group traveling to Haiti with Help One Now.
In 2012, I followed along as some of my favorite people on the internet (Sarah Bessey, Jen Hatmaker, and Kristen Howerton among them) went to Haiti to fund and then build a school. The process was hard to read about and also inspiring at the same time. On our trip, we'll be visiting the work that is in progress through Help One Now in Drouin, Port Au Prince, and Ferrier Village.
They've asked me to attend as a storyteller. I'll be surrounded by other women, beautiful writers and creators all.
I'm scared. The first time I went to a third world country was a year and a half ago, to Sri Lanka with World Vision, a trip that changed so much. But, to whom much is given (and my gratefulness knows no bounds), much is required (something I'm only beginning to learn). I believe I was put on this earth to write, and not just to tell my own story.
I'll be in Haiti from April 12 - 16, the week before Easter. If you're the praying type, I'd appreciate your intercession for the whole team in these weeks before we go. If you're the following type, I hope you follow along. I'm not sure what to expect. But I'm walking in faith.
