Haiti Bound

For Caroline

Most people spend their lives running away from trouble,
others getting into it.
Only a few choose to run towards other people's trouble,
fewer still seek it out for His sake.

Those few are the rescuers -
 the remnant who go when no one else will.
Whose faithfulness testifies to God's mercy and love -
written in the story of their lives.

Sometimes it's hard to see them - they are so few -
obscured by everyone running the other way.
But I can.
For they are beautiful.
