"Hello Dr. Don,
I hope you are doing well. God has been so good to me by giving me the opportunity to meet you. Your team and especially you are different from many that I have worked with. My name is Elio Dortilus. I was born in October 1990. I am from Haut-Limbe, Limbe, Cap-Haitien, Haiti. I was born into a family of four_my father's name was Selio, my mom's is Rosalette and my sister's is Guilouse.
I enjoy our talks. Since the death of my father I try not to have as much young friends but mostly old because I have a lot to learn about God, love and life in general. So come you! Why did we meet the way we met? I don't know.
I should tell you that honestly you've been quite helpful to me. Coaching me helps me to think better. Your presence here is a blessing to us (Haitian) but for me it's a treatment.
We are tired of visitors giving us a fish (that last just for a few hours) what we (Haiti) needs is someone who is willing to teach us how to fish (lifetime help). I've been learning more about God through your teachings and your way of acting. Haiti needs people like you! Please, comeback to teach us.
I can make arrangements for you to come teach for weeks or a semester at the North Haiti Christian University (where I am a student) if you are willing to participate in creating a better Haiti.
Your time spent here is not lost. God sees your heart. Already, I have you in my mind, heart and prayers.
May God bless you"
