I was very privileged to have the opportunity to lead a small sunrise chapel on our one Sunday in Jacmel. About 20 soldiers, half the company, showed up at 6am on the beach. Colonel Hershey, Sergeant Ross, and Lieutenant Harer did readings, and I shared a brief message and led everyone in singing Amazing Grace. It was one of the most beautiful moments of the 2 weeks - just standing on the beach, surrounded by people who felt like family even though we'd only been together for a short time, singing "When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to sing God's praise than when we first begun."
