Reasons to love Haiti with Jesus’ love

Children are often abandon by their parents. This child lies on the floor of an after school program. He was brought here by his mother. We don’t know where she is. He is deaf, blind, and cannot walk.

Little ones have very little educational resources. Education is desperately needed in Haiti. This child is part of a school program put together by a Haitian couple. The program receives no support but they teach the children about the love of Jesus.

Girls are often at risk of falling into the hands of predators. This 16 year old girl was sexually abused by the husband of her caretaker. She fled to Jacmel to hide from him. Now she has no place to live.

There are many reasons to love the people of Haiti with the love of Jesus.   many reasons why not to forget or turn our faces away. These are real people. Real lives. And Jesus loves them all. He sent you and I to share His love with them. It is how we demonstrate faith.—Maria

“If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food,  and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?” –James 2:15
