I always get this feeling leaving these islands – excited and sad and hoping not too much changes while I'm away. I suspect that I will be changed this time.

Last night as I was trying to sleep I kept remembering a time in 2004, when I was lucky enough to visit a group of prisoners – high ranking soldiers of the Fijian army awaiting trial for five years or more, for their under duress involvement in the coup.

One of the leaders said to me, "I may be in prison, but the prison is not in me."

For some reason, his words and their plight, as well as their faithfulness and long-suffering gracefulness seem to be speaking into this trip to Haiti.

And with that, I'm on my way. This journey to Haiti is a little longer for me!

Keep listening and considering how you can be involved in this project!
