Reading List

I have added a new page to the blog, found among the tabs at the top. The "Reading List." tab will feature books I have on my to-read list and reviews of books I have completed related to economic development, social justice, and Haitian history and culture.

If you are interested, I hope this list will inspire you to read a bit more as well. Also, if you know of any books that you think should be on the list but are not, please let me know and I will look into them!

Change of Place

Two big pieces of news came to me this afternoon. First, I have reached my goal for fundraising! This is far sooner than I expected, and I am so grateful and blessed to have all of this support. Thank you to all who have made contributions! (More on this at the end of the post).

Second, I have received the blessing of Bishop Duracin, the Bishop of Haiti, for placement in Cange, Haiti, a town located in the Central Plateau inland to the northeast of Port-au-Prince. This means my placement is official!

"But wait, I thought you were going to Brazil," you say. That was the plan until Dr. Harry Morse and David Vaughn, both parishioners at Holy Trinity Episcopal Clemson, proposed a placement in Haiti.
