Today we spent the day with Mission of Hope here in Haiti.They have a pretty incredible work going which was started 11 years ago. They have a big vision for today and for the future. The facilities they are building are well made and have a purpose. At they core of what they do is to provide the best education in the country of Haiti…and they are achieving that. Through a great set of teachers and a solid curriculum they have just achieved a 100% pass rate for their students. They are giving hope to not just the orphans on their campus but also to the children in the community.
While driving to and from the mission, we passed hundreds or thousands of tent homes which still house hundreds of thousands of people from the earthquake. Some of the tent villages were sponsored by Samaritans Purse and yet others were just tarps.
Yet one of the most striking things we saw today is the smiles of the children in the missions. They have love and they have hope. They are safe and get to eat. When we as strangers entered the area we were quickly welcomed and word spread quickly among the children that there were visitors.
What are you doing to make a difference in the life of others? There are millions of opportunities to make a difference…and they are waiting for you.
We don’t have consistent power or water so my posts will be short when I can get a connection.
