2/26/10 - Team 5, Day 6

From Alicia Michalz, CST
I write this with a very heavy heart, as our time has come to an end. Today is the last day to see our helpers for the week and the clinic is now closed. I can't even begin to tell you how most of our lives have changed. Dr. Bryan gave us our last debrief. It was warm and gracious and so spiritual. Tears were shed as we all realized we had come into a routine and are not ready to leave. Dr. Guy, who is Haitian and from the Bridge Team also expressed his thanks for helping his native country.

We have seen patients come and go but yet all of them have touched us one way or another. Again, I cannot say how precious and kind these people are. I believe that somehow they will never forget us either. Each time I give something, hug someone or smile I hear the same warm words, "God Bless you," I will pray for you. I would have never thought that I would have so many people praying for me. How lucky am I?

I believe there was a reason for me to be here. God lead me here and I have this strong feeling he will lead me here again. I have this urgency to continue this cause and make sure my precious boys that have spent the whole week with me are doing well and thriving.

I sign off for now so I can enjoy the company of my team and the stories they are sharing from today.
