Sabbatical Day 45 – Haiti Day 6
It’s our last day here which is a little bitter-sweet. I’ve endured: no electricity, no air conditioning, bad water, malaria infested mosquitoes, tarantulas, scorpions, and extreme heat. As I write this list I realize that I’m going back home to a place where none of those hardships exist, but the people of Haiti will continue to live with those things every moment of every day. They never get a break.
I won’t be able to change the nation of Haiti, but I can make a difference in the lives of a few children. I can go several times a year to Mission of Hope to show the love of Christ to these kids. I can sponsor children so they receive an education, food and clothing. I can make the people at my church aware of how they can get involved to impact the children in Haiti. One life at a time, we can make a difference and before long, a nation will be transformed.
