This is Bob Glaser's final blog.  We have been updating our web site and I'm just now getting to this final installment.

Thursday Nov.20

Today is the last day of work on this trip to Haiti.  We tried to complete as much as possible and make sure there are no loose ends hanging when we leave. Unfortunately we were unable to complete the Monfort Orphanage and school water treatment project.  We did however make a lot of progress and the project will be completed on the next trip by Tek4Kids in December.  However I will not be there to see the final results.  I do feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to be a part of this worthy project. The children there are so adorable.  It makes me want to take them home with me.

I am looking forward to coming home tomorrow but a little sad because this was an experience I will never forget.  The team I have had a chance to spend the last two weeks with are awesome people and I have the highest respect for the dedication and work they are doing. I also leave a little of my heart here in Haiti.  The people here that I have had the opportunity to meet and get to know are wonderful.  The people living in Jeremie need and are so appreciative of our support.  I do plan to return on another trip in the future. I am returning within a week from Thanksgiving and this experience has made me realize how much I have to be thankful for.  I hope I never take the comforts and blessings I have at home for granted.  This experience has made me wonder why I have been granted the wonderful life I have and the people in Haiti have the life they have. I will never feel bad when I have a hardship or challenge in the future. I will just respond to it and continue to count my blessings.
