I want to encourage you to go read Tara’s post (just click on the link) that she put up on their blog. It’s really well written and says a lot about the things that missionaries in places like Haiti encounter with hosting guests. I know that Chris and I have felt the same way many times and it can be so hard to effectively communicate with visitors about why we feel the way we do. Often those things are wrapped up in years of experiences, some of them very painful. I think it’s good for people read things like this so they have some insight into the other side.
Onto other things…
I sometimes wonder why we don’t get that many comments on the blog, but then recently realized that in the whole time that I’ve been blogging not once have I ever put up a post about how that works! Silly, silly me. I know there are many of you out there that are regulars in the blog world, but I also know that there are many reading this that aren’t.
We love to have your comments because it helps us feel a bit more connected to you. If you want to say hi or let us know what you think about something just do the following:
1. At the bottom of every post by the post time there’s a “Comment” link in another color. Just click on that and it will take you to the comment page.
2. On the comment page you just have to click in the big box and start typing.
3. When you’re done typing your comment scroll down and select how you want to leave it. If you have a Google account or write a blog you’ll know about those options. If you don’t you can just click on “Anonymous” and leave your name in the body of the comment so we know who sent it.
4. Click on “Publish” and you’re done!
