It seems like there is always something that happens to make it hard to be away for a short-term mission trip. Our team this year was spared any loss - other than one member of our crew had a brother living in Minn. and was understandably upset when we got news of the bridge collapsing. She quickly found out that he was fine and was put at ease.
Right now we have a team in Haiti and one of the men who went on that trip got news that his mother passed away. He is currently trying to get home from Haiti to be with his family. His wife is also in Haiti - she is the team leader. I can only imagine how hard it is to be away from home and get news like that. Please pray for this couple and especially for Scott.
