Liz, thank you so much for your wonderful example. My husband is currently
serving in Afghanistan for the U.S Army. Sometimes it is hard not to succumb to
grief and fear the adversary instills in us. What a great example your story was
for me though on a day I truly needed it. Thank you for the loving service you
provide to our Savior by being with and loving the Haitians. I admire your
courage and faith. Thank you. The volunteers over there, as well as the natives,
have been in my prayers and I will continue that. Thank you for sharing your
love and talents with the world. We love you!
God bless you, Liz. You have truly risen above your grief to be a great
blessing and example to all of us. I pray that you will be able to have
children here on earth, but, if not, you are living the full measure of your
creation. I pray for your continued good health and protection as you serve.
Much love goes out to you from our family.
Liz, when my dad told me you were over there all I could do was smile and feel
proud! You are such an amazing person and I've ALWAYS looked up to you. I doubt
you ever realized how much of a role model you have always been for me. Thank
you for being a constant reminder of the way we should all live our lives!
Liz, Your love and light will be remembered long after you leave Haiti. Thank
you for listening to Heavenly Father and to follow you heart. You are a special
spirit, know that you are loved.
Liz, your love and light will be remembered by all those you come in contact
with. I know that Heavely Father loves you and you reflect this in your work.
Thank you for listening to your heart.Barbara Pincombe
Liz, I can only echo the same words everyone else has said about you and your
willingness to be a servant to those who need you and your spirit. The first
thing I thought of was that this was a long way from our town and summertime
butterflies. Your smile and blue eyes still shine in my heart!
Liz knowing you all my life I know what a special person you are. You have
overcome a lot of personal tragedy and are still giving to others. If
motherhood doesn't come your way I hope you know how much you made that one
little boy feel loved and I am sure countless others feel loved in a time that
they needed it the most and that is what counts. I am very pround to say I know
that amazing women and look up to that little girl chasing butterflies in the
outfield with the most amazing smile.. Love,Hollie
I know that the actions of Mrs.Howell come from a beautiful place of compassion,
empathy in suffering both physical and emotional wounds. Her heart has enlarged
to a size that encompasses the small island of Haiti. I believe that such acts
of love never go unnoticed, just as I know that there is not even one bruise
that is unseen or one yelp unheard.
Thank you, Liz, for your willingness to serve. It takes a special person such
as you to be able to care for those people in Haiti. My prayers are with you and
all those other special people serving those in need in Haiti.
Thank you Liz and all the medical team for all you are doing. I wish I could be
there to help. I'm sure the Swiss will do a great job. I would love
to hear the outcome of this little boy. I hope someone goes back and reports on
how he is doing.
I knew the moment I met Liz so many years ago that she was exceptional. You are
all right to be grateful for who she is and what she does. She is
everything that you see in these articles. And she has been this way all of her
life, not just when the cameras are rolling. My heart is with you, my
It is wonderful to see what you are going. It is humbling and a blessing to
know you and to see what you have accomplished all these years. Keep up the
work and setting the example that inspires us all. I know that there are those
here and elsewhere that are proud of you. Take care of yourself and those that
need it most. Matt and Mindy
Thank you, Liz, for what you're doing, and thanks Deseret News for publishing
what she wrote in her own words. More and more like this! I want to be a
better person for having read it.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful story. Countries will send aid but it
takes an individual to offer love, a caring heart and the human touch. Liz, may
you continue to be blessed throughout your life. You are a hero!!
that are there helping. Please keep the victims and helpers in your prayers and
give as much to the effort as you can.
Gracias por compartir esta experiencia, me hacen saber que Dios esta escuchando
mis oraciones, pues ruego por todos los que estn brindando ayuda para que sepan
como rescatarlos tanto fisica como espiritualmente. Oro por los mas vulnerables,
los nios, y pienso en todos aquellos que han quedado solos, en aquellas madres
que han perdido sus hijos, en los padres que no volveran. Ruego al Padre que
alivie sus sufrimientos y que los protejan. Gracias por el servicio que estan
brindando, no desmayen y sepan que hay mucha gente orando por todos ustedes,
todos los que no podemos ayudar directamente pero que al saber de estos ejemplos
de servicio sentimos aliviado nuestro corazon. Sigan compartiendo estas
historias, ayudemos a levantar este pueblo. Se que Dios tiene un proposito para
cada uno de nosotros, talves este sea el momento de que esta nacion empieze a
Liz,I had heard you were over there. I have thought of you often and
the service and skills you have been able to render to the people of Haiti. May
you be blessed as you continue to serve your fellow man and the Lord.
There is a difference in caring and mothering. A mother is concerned not only
for their child's physical well being but also for their emotional and spiritual
well being. You may have thought you were only doing a nurses job; but you were
not, you were mothering and I am sure that this little boys mother appreciates
you stepping in when she could not.
May God bless your efforts to help these people at a time of great need. I
praise you for your nursing studies that brought you to Haiti. Because of your
training, you are doing service in which I can not do. My thoughts and prayers
will be for you and with you in the many stressful months ahead.As your
brother in the Gospel I want to tell you that I am very proud of you.
Liz, thank you for sharing your experience and being such a wonderful example of
the Savior's love.
"But I'd like to think that maybe if I were a mother who passed away, that
someone would take care of my child, and I was grateful I could do that."What a story. Blessings to you Liz. May you keep going in
your care of these poor children with your true 'mother's heart.'
What a wonderful, spiritual example of love in action. God does send angels even
in this present day, and those angels are people like you. May God continue to
bless ALL those whose unselfish efforts are saving so many lives in this
tremendous natural disaster.
THANK YOU, LIZ! You are truly a mother in zion. That is a beautiful story. It
filled my heart to overflowing!
