My goals is that they will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love.
Twenty-one months ago a group of women from Solid Rock set out together for Haiti.
While there we did life together in the grimmest of circumstances. And we found both friendship and joy in the midst of all that devastation.
Our hearts were knit together in ways I'd never experienced before with women-- ever. And those ties remain all these months later. In fact, we've been calling each other "The Sista's" ever since, our need for this kind of sisterhood connection transcending ages, stages of life, interests, anxieties.
This week a few of us met for a picnic. I thought I'd stay and hour and get back to work. I stayed 2 1/2 hours, cramming in last minute talk right up to the parking lot and last round of hugs. Once again I found courage with these women. They believe in me, want the best in and for me. We champion each other's dreams and as you'll read in this story, even clean each other's bathrooms…
From my heart,
