Service

12 comments
Last week a group of local men and women from my neighborhood and surrounding area including my best friend Laura's husband Ken and her son Sam, left for Haiti to volunteer their services to the Haitian people.

They call themselves the Utah Hospital Task Force and have a blog that helps us know how things are going with the relief efforts from this team of health care workers, construction professionals and others from Utah. I'm still in awe that the team will be there for 21 days without showers let alone think of what the conditions are like for those actually living in this country.

The articles and links on the blog are worth reading and thinking about. Service like this will never be forgotten.

Nanette, Thank you for bringing this blog to our attention. I, like you, am in awe of the people who are going to Haiti to assist in helping those in need. These are true heroes and should be supported in every way that we can. Especially by keeping them and those they assist in our prayers daily.

This whole situation in Haiti is just mind-boggling. There is so much that needs to be done and it will take a long time to do it. Thankfully, there are people who are willing and able to go there and begin this huge task.

The Utah Hospital Task Force team that was just in Haiti helped my nephew and others bring out 50 children who were almost through the adoption process. My niece and nephew's little boy was one of those 50 children. We hail the Utah Hospital Task force team as HEROS, First Class!

Thanks for sharing this, Nanette. I made a donation at church that will go to Haiti. It's a small thing but combined with others it becomes a bigger thing. What a great task this group has taken on. I would like to do more myself but am not sure what that might be. I have a thought about something and am thinking I might share it with our pastor and see what she thinks. The suffering in Haiti reminds me that I should never complain about anything again.
