In my job I do get to meet many amazing people. People who give so much of themselves to help others right here in Canada.
Over the last few months we have been raising supplies and money to send a container to a fairly large work in Haiti. School desks medical supplies etc. We are currently attending The Meeting House church in Oakville and I literally overheard a conversation about this couple who was heading to Haiti. I engaged them, mentioning that we were trying to put together a shipment to Haiti to the Mission of Hope, and wouldn’t you know it, that is where they were going.
I ended up meeting this great young family who are going to leave jobs and home and give a year of their life (maybe more) to work and help out there. Their blog is just started, but you can follow their progress via this link. Very cool.
