I had to laugh when I saw this joke, especially after plans made for the 2021 Haiti Leadership Conference slowly fell apart. We had plans set in November with the schedule for each day planned out and speakers assigned their topics. Then December 10 I was notified that the two pastors going with me would not be able to attend. Pastor Ted found out he could not attend because of his work and Pastor Harlan contracted COVID. On December 29 Pastor Joel notified me that he would not be able to attend because he tested positive for COVID. 

I must say that I struggled a little as people asked if I should go. As I prayed, I felt that we had put precautions in place at the conference to keep everyone safe. I also felt a peace about traveling and attending that I had not felt before. I was assigned more teaching with little time to prepare before the first meeting on January 4 but the messages seemed to come together quickly. God also supplied two Haitian pastors to join in the teaching. Pastor Telfort has been a part of the conference in the past and interpreted for me. Pastor Elie Michel also joined our team of three.
