Haiti

As many of the followers of my blog know, I work for AdaptaSoft, Inc. a provider of payroll software to the payroll service bureau industry. I usually don't bring it up, as I try to keep my posts as useful and relevant to everyone as possible, which I hope is appreciated.

Today I am making mention of it because the leader of our company (President/CEO/Owner) Tim Troxel was on the ground in Haiti on an annual mission trip sponsored by his church the day the earthquake struck. After discussing it at length with other folk at AdaptaSoft, I decided that posting Tim's emails from Haiti to his friends, family, and co-workers would give a unique perspective to those who find their way to my blog.

Tim and the mission team are located in Les Cayes, which is on the western peninsula. Although it seems that little damage was sustained there, all supply lines have been dwindling and are now essentially cut off.

I don't know how his story will play out. Their return flight was scheduled for today (1/15), but has been delayed for an undetermined amount of time. The priority is clearly on inbound humanitarian relieve - as well it should be.

I am pre-dating this and the other posts so that the chronology of the story remains true, and will update it when additional messages come in from Tim. I know he would appreciate your prayers.
