Tricia asks

Hi Isaac!

Thanks so much for taking some more questions.  I really appreciated your advice the last time!  Unfortunately, I didn't get to do any of the three things you suggested to me (Basin Bleu, hiking to Seguin, and Wahoo Bay).  But good news, I have done ALL of those when I lived in Haiti!  I did go to Ile a Vache, which is close to Les Cayes, and you really should try to go there sometime!  It was the most beautiful and breathtaking part of Haiti I have ever seen!

Anyways, back to my question.  You have a lot of siblings!  I've been having a big disagreement with my sister for about a year.  What advice can you give me? She speaks meanly and disrespectfully to me.  We are adults so my parents can't figure it out.  What advice could you give about getting along with a sibling who doesn't speak nicely or respectfully to you?

Thanks so much Isaac!


Hi T -
This one was hard for Isaac. He really wanted to get it right. :)  He tends to be VERY literal and he sometimes over thinks things. At one point he wondered if a judge could order mediation.  I told him I didn't think you and your sister were in the middle of a divorce so maybe not. We talked a lot before he wrote his answer and that might be evident in the examples he gave. He said "Well this just makes me very sad."  He really hopes this problem will get solved very soon. :)  With love from here, Tara


  1. Hi Isaac! I have a question for you! Some of our family's best friend just left TODAY to go be missionaries in Haiti (about 2 hours outside of PAP). My five year old and four year old sons are going to really miss their best friends, even though we are excited for this new chapter in their lives. My question is this: What can we do as friends of missionary children do to help ease their transition? What do you think would be good things to mail in a care package to Haiti? Keep up the good work, Isaac! I always love reading your responses.

  2. Wow - what a great answer, Isaac! I was wondering if this would be a hard question for you (and I didn't want to make you think too much). But I know that part of answering questions is answering the hard ones too.

    Thanks for the good advice. I think I will take you up on your idea to meet with a counsellor!


Hi! I'm Isaac. Ask me anything!
