Women Are the Same All Over the World
I just returned from a mission trip to Haiti. The country is full of rubble and grief, and I hope the world doesn't forget this devastated country and its beautiful people. I spent lots of time with various Haitian women and participated in a women's program with our sister church in Picot, Haiti. Despite the obvious differences of color, economic status, living conditions and language, we weren't very different. Women are the same all over the world - we want to make a difference in our communities, if married we want to love our husbands and be loved by them, we want to care for our families, we want our children to have better lives than we have, we want to know God. Pray for our sisters in Haiti, especially those who have lost family, friends and homes in the earthquake.
