Hi all,

I realized last weekend that the news article (which has apparently had quite a readership!   It's fun to have my patients come in and tell me that they saw the article, for example), which came out on Friday after Thanksgiving, was published 5 years to the day from when Jen and I sent off an email to Vanessa at Angel Missions Haiti saying that we would host Anderson for heart surgery.

We had no idea what that 'simple' decision would mean for our family, for our church, for my work, for the joyful introductions of so many people to Pestel, and the good work that would be furthered on behalf of Pestel.

I received a couple of photos from the September trip with Vitamin Angels.  Thought I'd pass them along to you.
