In Haiti

A week ago a friend asked if I was busy, today I'm in Port-au-Prince with a group of people I've mostly never met before. I'm curious to see what happens next. If I were to judge a place by its sunsets this one would get high marks, if by traffic, not so much. Looking out over the orphanage we'll spend the next week at, I wondered what it could look like with a few more repairs, construction, and upgrades. A bit later I realized God was wondering what the place could look like if he had his way with the people. It's not the first time I've failed to see the big picture, you know, the one that matters.
