I will be returning to Haiti in 9 days and I have decided that I will be sharing my blog posts from when my husband and I went to Haiti in 2013 with Compassion International.
Today’s post is from our second day in Haiti 2013
It’s title is Hope is Here
Yesterday I woke up in my nice warm bed in the United states, today I woke up in Haiti. I came to this place not really knowing what God had planned for me in this Country but did I think I he was sending me here to to be of some sort of help.
I also had an idea in my head as to what I thought life here would be like. When I arrived here yesterday I saw things were as I thought they would be but I could never have prepared myself for how it would really look and how it would make me feel. I saw so many people living what appeared to me to be a harder life than I could have ever imagined could be possible. I could not get the the looks on the faces of people we passed out of my mind, the look that seemed to say “please help me”. I so desperately wanted to help but there were hundreds of people lining the streets and I could not help them. I went to bed last night with my heart feeling as if it had been ripped out of my chest wondering how can this be happening and do these people have hope?
Today was a different sort of day. Finish the story by clicking here,
