Prior to going to Haiti in February, I had been reading The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henry Nouwen. The last chapter talks of the Father rejoicing – God rejoices and we are called to enter into that joy. I purposed to look for joy in the small things during my time in Terre Blanche.
It was not difficult to make a list: Sunday worship; Pastor Delamy praying for me; Jeanty’s enthusiastic Creole lesson; 3-month-old twins…
There was joy to be found.
