Haiti changes people. by jamieivey | Jun 26, 2009 | My Story | 6 comments The first time I went to Haiti in November of 2006 my life was forever changed. 6 Comments Lena on June 26, 2009 at 11:38 am Haiti changed me, my life, my heart, my family forever (we are also adopting 2 children from Haiti, now). Or, perhaps more accurately, God changed me-I cooperated, by being obedient to going on my first mission trip, almost 1 year ago. I had many of the same fears/worries/crazy thoughts that you did. This trip was waaaay out of my comfort zone. I’m so grateful to God for working on my heart! It’s such and adventure-and I love it! God is great and doing amazing things. I pray that I am open to hearing Him and obeying Him. Can hardly wait to see what He’s got next!! Jessica on June 26, 2009 at 12:37 pm “I did not change Haiti, but instead Haiti changed me.” –so very true. Haiti has changed me and challenged me in crazy ways and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! 39 days til I go back! TARA on June 28, 2009 at 10:25 am We are at the tail end of our long journey of adoptions from Haiti. We have 3 beautiful and amazing birthchildren who have traveled with us to Haiti and cannot wait for the day their 2 brothers come home for good. Jean Claude and Woodson are amazing 13 year old boys who we met when they were 10! God used them to change our families lives in amazing ways. We have all traveled to Haiti several times and are working on a water project along with helping to sponsor a medical clinic in the mountains of Haiti. I pray that people will continue to do work in Haiti and help bring many of those beautiful children to loving homes. Laura Morris on June 28, 2009 at 5:31 pm Yep…our trip to Haiti changed me forever…you can’t help but fall in love with this place… Lunecee on June 30, 2009 at 1:31 pm Ladies, I am so happy that the Lord is using you all in such a powerful way. Everyone, including Haitians themselves living out of the country perceive Haiti as being a country run my criminal activities, when in fact, Haiti is one of the most peaceful places in the Caribbean when you look at civilians to police ratio. Anyways, I thank you all for your mission in Haiti and may my Lord and savior continue to bless you all. Roberta on June 30, 2009 at 10:19 pm I was told to check out your blog. 🙂 It’s great to see what you are doing in Haiti and how much it has changed you! I’m excited to experience Haiti in the near future. God put a crazy idea into my mind when I was thinking of a way to help the Rescue Center in Cazale. I ignored it for awhile, but finally decided that I needed to listen. After talking with some friends, Artists For Hope was “born”. A few of us will be helping at the Rescue Center in November and I can’t even wait to be changed by Haiti! I’ve been to Africa, Guatemala, and Russia~ but never Haiti. I’ve already been changed just by reading Licia’s blog…so I can only imagine what it will be like actually being there. Your kids are beautiful and I hope they are home SOON!
