This was only my second trip to a country I’ve learned so much about growing up in a Haitian household. I always dreamed about visiting Haiti, but I never imagined going to Haiti on a missions trip to help rebuild.
I had the honor of working with various organizations to build an orphanage for the loving children at the Lamb Center orphanage in Leogane, Haiti. We heard a story of a young boy who yearned for a family and a safe place to live. He said a prayer asking God to send him people who care for him and a safe place to live so he won’t ever get crushed in another earthquake. It brought tears to my eyes to see his prayers being answered. I will never forget the hope he had and confidence that what he prayed for would come to pass.
