I just returned from my 3rd trip to Haiti in the last 11 months.  The children of Haiti have touched my heart in a way I can't explain.

I was the group leader for a group of 20, mostly college aged young adults.  The two most important programs I used this trip were Google Translate and Logos.  I have never led a group before.  My first trip was as a member of a group of 12 people, only one of whom I knew.  My second trip was by myself and I was there to take pictures and update profiles of sponsored children and children looking for sponsors.  I do not like being in the spotlight, so God pulled me way out of my comfort zone for this trip.

As part of my responsibilities, I had to lead devotions each night.  This is where Logos saved me.  I have had Logos for a few years now but have never really understood all of the workings of what I could do with it (I still don't).  On this trip however, as I was developing devotions, I learned to conduct searches in a much more efficient manner. I learned to use multiple resources at the same time, comparing lines of thought from various authors.  Logos saved me.  I received many comments on the devotions and how I challenged the group.  None of that would have been possible without the Lords leading and Logos.

Mesi Segne, and mesi Logos.

The children of Haiti would certainly touch the heart of a compassionate person.  My oldest son has worked there and his wife (to be at that time) was there for a year including the earthquake time. They would echo your comments.  

I was surprised to find Logos ABSENT at the 2015 Missionconnexion conference in Portland. Or did I just miss them?
