Brother Dryden found it hard to turn away those who would ask and consequently gave away quite a bit of his Haitian money. Most of the street peddlers were peddling secondhand stuff or fruit and vegetables that they personally grew and harvested. It was amazing to see. We headed home Tuesday. I had a clear understanding of the sacrifices missionaries make to answer the call God has placed on their lives. I have a greater appreciation for missionaries than I ever have had before.
