One of my cluster-group colleagues and fellow Arrow Leadership alums is right in the thick of the relief response to the horrible crisis in Haiti.  MICHAEL MESSENGER is VP Public Affairs, World Vision Canada.  He tells a powerful story.  It will direct our prayers.  Also included is a story from another Arrow alum, a Salvation Army staffer with an “on the ground” story.  It’s compelling reading.
