9781515279044: The Haitian Chronicles: Poetic Reflections on 15 years of visiting the land

In 15 years of travel and work in Haiti, The Rev. Tom Parsons, a retired Presbyterian minister and his wife, JoEllen have met and become friends with many Haitians. They started a primary school in the mountains of southwestern Haiti which has now provided free education and hot meals to more than 200 Haitians from the Labastille community, about an hour and a half by motorcycle and foot from the city of Jèrèmie. The poems in this book reflect on Tom's 15 years of traveling to, and working in Haiti. They are about the people and places he and JoEllen encountered during those 15 years of ministry in this economically poor, but spiritually rich nation. Both touching and reflective, some of the poems also consider the humorous situations often encountered in missionary ministry. The Haitian Chronicles is the second book of poems published by Tom. His first book, Soul Country was a result of a three month sabbatical trip around the U.S. on the back of an old BMW motorcycle he called Sonbeem.

About the Author:

A second career minister, Tom Parsons spent his entire ministry serving a single congregation in a small community in the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York. The congregation, while not large, had a big heart, and together, they engaged in much local, national and international mission work. Tom is married with two grown children and five grandchildren. Besides his main loves of family and ministry, throughout his life he has also enjoyed writing poetry, woodworking, motorcycling, singing and playing the guitar and tennis. He appreciates his home in the Adirondacks, and likes camping, canoeing and kayaking the many lakes and rivers of upstate New York.
