Considering this is the time of year we planned to be in Haiti, I’ve been reflecting a lot recently on our last two visits…and since this would have been the first story you would’ve received upon our return, I’m sharing those reflections with you! (Based on the number of times this topic comes up, I think it’s really important too – I hope this helps you!)

Upon returning last year I was asked something of the sort, “How do you deal with the emotions of seeing poverty firsthand and then coming back to the comfortable life we have here in America?”

Essentially, this question is getting at the topic of guilt, and it’s actually something that comes up quite frequently in my discussions with others. On the surface, it seems reasonable and quite easy to feel guilty for living a life different than those of many others around the world. It’s something I’ve wrestled with myself for years, however, I’ve learned there’s freedom in going deeper with that feeling – going past guilt and on into a deeper understanding of poverty.
