Halos Medical Mission

Halos is a new Medical Mission that has started in Haiti with the mission and goal to:

  • Our mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to serve God by providing free medical care to the people of Haiti.
  • Our goal is to save Haitian children from disease and death and give them hope for the future.

I have a very personal connection to Halos do what I can to help it succeed. Halos will be officially dedicated on their next trip down. Our local paper just had a nice article on the work and history of Halos. If you are interested in helping out or heading down to help on the ground, please contact them directly or myself. There is powerful work happening and lives are being changed.

For what it's worth.

Be Smart Parents

Another extremely sad story about a small child (baby in this case) being mauled by a dog. This one happened to be a rottweiler but almost any dog or animal can have this effect. I am not in any way advocating for no pets, I am just stating that parents need to be smart and diligent about pets and small children.

We have a now five year old yellow lab and she is the calmest little one that I know. When our daughter (now two) was smaller and even now we are very aware of if she and the dog are alone. There have been a couple of times that our daughter is not doing anything to provoke the dog and all of the sudden the dog either starts barking (very rare) or just gets over excited about a situation and someone (an adult) needs to step in and separate the dog form the situation. As much as people try to domesticate animals like dogs, they are still animals and need supervision over those types of interactions.

Bottom line to parents, be smart and keep children and pets supervised at all times.

For what it's worth.
