We started our day by going to church at a place close to our complex. At church, we could tell the Haitians serve the same God that we do, and I could feel the Holy Spirit was present. Their church had a lot of great singers! The small children sang some songs too; I loved seeing God working through them. Although we could not understand their language, we knew that God was there. What a great way to start our day.
In the afternoon, we took a ride by the river and through the mountains; what a beautiful sight to see! It is so beautiful here! In the evening, we went to the orphanage to visit all the children. Bill and Jennifer run the orphanage and are amazing people who care for each and every one of those kids with all their heart. They are truly following God’s calling. Some of the stories they shared with us were so heart breaking. It was evident to our entire group that they are doing what God has called them to do.
This trip has been so eye opening and soul searching on what God wants us to do with our lives. Even if sponsoring a child for a dollar a day sounds so small, but is so big for these people!
