Most importantly, I fell in love. I fell in love with a country and her people. I fell in love with the way they worship. I fell in love with her children. I also learned a lot about my heart and how it loves. That learning has continued in my homeland, but it has left me for a longing to return. I left a piece of that heart on a rooftop porch and I am longing to return to claim it!
When my husband finishes law school, we plan to make this trip a regular in our budget. But The Lord said "go now! Don't wait!" My teacher salary is pulled as tight as it will stretch while we raise three children and put my wonderful husband through school, but I know The Lord will provide what I need to complete what He has called me to do. He has already spent three years preparing my heart to participate in a nurturing program at the orphanage, which is what I will spend the majority of this trip doing! I will be looking for creative ways to raise extra money, but if you're like me, sometimes I would rather skip what's being sold and give the full amount to the cause!
I appreciate your help. Every penny given to reach my goal of 1800 will cover all of my expenses for the ten day trip (Airfare, travel lodging, meals) as well as fees for GoFundMe! Anything above that will go toward the projects done on the ground in Haiti! You can find more information about Friends of Fort Liberte at haitifriends.com
