1 day to go

I just can't believe it! Times fly as they say!
Everything is pretty much ready! I had to go through my luggage over and over to make sure they stay at 50 lbs each. They are full of pencils, erasers, pens, pencil sharpeners and some toys.

This is not enough for the kids but I wish each Haitian can do as little as that and we can begin then to see a difference. I am not trying to brag about myself which I would not have the right to since I was helped by so many others but when we put ourselves together to give back to our communities, our countries we all can make a difference. I will go through the details on my latest posts.

I would like to thank all of you who have made everything possible up to this point I will single them out on a later post.

I am still in the process of coordinating with a crew in Haiti on how we are going to do the distribution, we are still not sure about transportation but I know the Lord will work something out!

Please pray for us since they are so many activities in the Atlantic Ocean as far as potential hurricanes (none of them are welcomed)

This project is about putting Faith in God knowing that he will provide and I will elaborate more as well at a later post. Wowwww.... so many things for me to follow up with it means the blog is getting more and more interesting!!!! Just keep on reading it and make your comments!

From banana boat to top chef


Ron Duprat’s story is one of survival, opportunity and success.

Duprat reached America after a 27-day journey at sea aboard a banana boat — his way of escaping Haiti.

“We didn’t even know where we were going,” Duprat told me recently while in Tampa, Fla., for the National Association of Black Journalists annual convention. “It was a journey I will never forget.”

Now Duprat, the executive chef at the Hollywood Beach Marriott hotel, is a contestant on “Top Chef Las Vegas,” which began airing Wednesday (August 26 2009) on Bravo.

“As a kid growing up in Haiti, I would have never thought I’d be at top chef,” he said. “It’s a dream come true. I want people to watch the show. People will see something the world has never seen before. They will see food they’ve never heard about. They will see methods no one knows even exist.”

Duprat learned to cook from his grandmother in Haiti. His ambitions go high.

“My goal is to start a campaign someday that makes sure no kids go to bed hungry,” he said.

6 days to go!

Though I have not been updating the blog in the past few weeks, I have however been working on making the trip a reality! I have received more supports than expected and I will tell you more about this on a later post.

I will be updating my blog a little more often now and I am hoping once in Haiti if I have internet access I will do a daily update (if possible) I will put the pictures on it once I am back in the US.

Please keep us in your prayers. A lot of hurricanes are forming and we are not sure how safe Haiti will be and you remember we just had 4 of them in a year and we are still recovering from that we do have a long way to go!

Thanks for loving Haiti and thanks for praying for the country!
Thanks for reading the blog and as always you are welcome to contact me and/or leave a comment and no you do not have to register to do so!

We are walking toward the goal!

Be blessed!
