My Cute Little Cousins—Now on the Ground in Haiti and Uganda

I used to hug and tickle my cousins Kent and Jeannie when I was a Bible school student in Edmonton and lived with their parents for that year. They were as adorable as two kids can be.

I’m not kidding: Check ’em out (and ignore the impossibly young man holding them):

Well, cute little Jeannie is now Dr. Jeannie Annan, child psychologist whose expertise is in the traumatic effects of war on men, women and children in northern Uganda and southern Sudan. She has conducted her research sometimes in a flak jacket between armed guards.

Cute little Kent is now well over six feet tall, a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, and a co-director of Haiti Partners. The fine Canadian journalist George Strombolopoulos interviews Kent about what Haiti is like and what it needs here.

Kent’s tender and provocative new book, Following Jesus through the Eye of the Needle, about being a middle-class kid trying to walk with Jesus in Haiti is here.

(Yes, I’m very proud of my cousins.)

    John,

    I can see why you would be proud of your cousin. Thanks for attaching the interview. I’m glad people like Kent can get some airtime to counter-balance what Strombo called “T.V. Christians”.

    By the way nice pants in the pic, I say you sport them at Regent on Monday! 😉

    Your cousin seems like a sincere, honest guy – I loved what he had to say about why he was in Haiti. But not as much as I love those plaid pants. Care to show us any more family photos?

    I believe I have that exact pair of paints (and wear them regularly). They did come from a second hand store…

    Three fine students at Regent College and, in the face of Haiti and Uganda, not to mention two very cute children, all they can see is plaid pants.

    Well, folks, that’s how we teach ’em at Regent Institute of Fashion and Design. There’s no crisis so big that you can ignore looking good. Right on, gang!

    I finished Kent’s book yesterday. Powerful. Incredible.
