We all have a destiny. God has a plan for the places we will go and things that we will see. This week, 10 women had the opportunity to further God's destiny for Haiti. These women woke up as early as 2:00 a.m. and took a break from their daily lives in order to 'Heal Haiti'. This was a small sacrifice in order to fulfill God's destiny.
The media often depicts only the negative aspects of third world countries. They regretfully forget the heart of the countries inhabitants. Upon arrival, the team was shocked to see the beauty of Haiti that is hidden from cameras. We were warmly welcomed by everyone insight. Crowds to children ran to greet us while parents waved. While the fast pace and traffic was alarming, it did not cloud our minds from the true beauty of this country as a whole.
These statements are not to say that Haiti is perfect. There is not a nation in the world that is. However, despite the animals and trash that lined the road, no one could deny God's handprint on Haiti. The group was more than ready and willing to allow God to use us to change lives this week.
