My most important job
One of the most inspiring experiences at GO Project is watching people make this ministry their own. Ines Dahne-Steuber is such a person. She’s been to Haiti more than a half dozen times. She’s lived globally, respects cultural differences, and speaks five languages. She is a beautiful soul; uniquely gifted to be champion for children who need family. She has faithfully served them, bringing blessings to many. So we are not surprised to receive wonderful news and thoughts from her, but still, this most recent e-mail from Ines blew us away….
Dear GO Friends,
I had another awesome trip to Haiti …my most impactful time was my time at Paula’s (Paula Coles leads The GO Exchange’s apparel initiative in Haiti). I had a few hours with her staff before she arrived so I could visit with the workers and watch them..(the) downstairs (crew) was busy making stockings. We had some good laughs because the staff didn’t understand the use of those oversized (Christmas) stockings they were making. 🙂 They don’t fit (on the feet of Haitians) 🙂
Humor aside, as I watched the day go on, it hit me that without The GO Exchange, none of the people there would have a job, or possibly food or shelter. I have a job where I often have to make decisions about job creations and eliminations. It is not easy to do that in the US either, but there are severance packages and unemployment benefits and options for other jobs. Not so in a place where there is 70% unemployment. I promise to do my very best to sell GO Exchange products. In the big picture, it might be my most important job :).
Thank you for EVERYTHING YOU DO. I am humbled 🙂
No, Ines, thank you! And thank you to each member of the GO family who has made this ministry your own. You humble us! We love you and are so grateful for you. Press on!
