Well, things on here will no longer make sense to you unless your keep up with my other blog. So do that! For those of you who have been lame so far, it's shelbyloveshaiti.blogspot.com
That means that this blog will be for insider content -oooooh! That is, things that are not really appropriate for me to say on my public blog. Things here are not quite what I expected. I guess I don't really like the organization -WWV- very much. I don't really like the way they do things. They're rather unorganized. There is a medical intern here, named Charles. He hasn't even started medical school, but they thought he was a doctor! Isn't that the kind of thing you should ask someone BEFORE they fly to Haiti?? Also, there hasn't been as much spiritual formation as I would have hoped. In fact, the ONLY thing that we've done is prayed before meals. I'm so used to Asbury, where I pray with others 10-12 times a day, have chapel 3 times a week, have meetings to talk about spiritual growth, small groups, etc! Here it's just me alone - praying alone, reading the bible alone, etc. The others didn't even want to go to church on Sunday, so I went alone. Church was really great though! There were a lot of Haitians who spoke really good English and a lot of missionaries/blancs. I don't think that Charles is even a Christian. He tells everyone that he just wanted to come to Haiti because he was bored. It's just supposed to be a Christian organization, so I don't really understand. NWHCM, who I went with for Spring Break, had morning and evening devo's, and I really liked that. The work we do here is in vain if it's not God-centered. I don't know. It's just a lot of stuff that goes on like that, and the communication is still kind of bad. I don't really know what's going on most of the time, but that's not a very big deal. I've been a little shy and awkward around the rest of the staff, but it's getting better. Me shy?!?! I know, right? What's up with that? I don't know. I still love it here, but things are just not what I was anticipating. Speaking of things not being organized, we didn't really do a lot with the time that was just here. Most days we only went out from like 10-3. And 3 hours of that time would be driving! I just kind of think it's a waste not to do more things with teams, and for us not to do more things, for that matter. There has been a lot of hanging out. I've read a ton, which is nice, but not what I want. I want to making the most of my time - just like I always try to do every day of my life.
Ahh, this blog is getting really rambly.
If I do decide to move here, I don't think I'd want to work with WWV.
Except maybe if they put me in charge of stuff so I get fix some things.
But probably not.
At least there is no chance of me falling in love with the other intern! lol
Love you guys!
