All I can say Michelle is WOW, you folks are a God send to our wonderful little Island that's been screaming for a chance to progress economically!! By the sound of your last name I first thought you and Paul were Haitian expatriates like Dumarsais Simeus- a Haitian Industrialist from Texas. I've been researching the bio-diesel properties of Jatropha Curcas and its powerful and plentiful economic impact in a place like Haiti for the last 3 years but have never heard of your Organization until now. I'm so passionate about the promotion of "Medsiyen" as we call it in Creole, that I can confidently say that I am ready to jump into a completely different Career. God bless you for what you do and there can only be continued success in the path that the Country is currently heading after the recent "Investor friendly" elections.

Dear JR,

Thank you for your comment, and your e-mail. I'm so sorry I haven't replied sooner. We have been very, very busy. Of the little Creole I have picked up I do know Medsiyen. I believe my favorite word is "Bagay" because I can use my hands and act out "the thing". It's an incredibly helpful word.

I love Haiti, and I love the opportunity to help people create their own change. I am inspired constantly by our partners there, and by positive comments like yours. Thank you again.
