And so today is Tuesday. Yesterday was amazing day for me. Although in a constant state of wonder and awe that lasted throughout the day, my moods and mind vacillated between states of extreme joy and extreme sadness. I laughed and smiled a lot- but then -at one point I retreated to the apartment and wept.
The children are so appreciative of any attention I/we show. Be it a "conversation" , a play activity or just holding them in my arms is so rewarding --more for me then them, I think. . We have one set of one year old twins, Emanuelle and Emanuella, who toddle around the crowd throughout the day, who sometimes fall, sometimes cry and usually get picked up and comforted at least once by everyone during the course of the day. God's face is evident in the faces of all these beautiful children.
I believed for so long that this trip to Haiti was God's directive for me. There is no doubt in my mind, after being here for three days, that I heard His voice loudly and clearly asking me to come to Haiti...I am so so grateful I "did not fear" and came...... I will never be the same person after this trip, even if I were to go home today. Judy Mattson
