Millie and I
Wednesday, December 8, 2010
I recently took a trip to the country of Haiti. This in my second time to visit this impoverished country. I went one time before the devastating earthquake, and this recent trip occurred after the quake. I had an amazing trip, and thoroughly enjoyed visiting my Hatian friends. The point of my trip was to help rebuild a school that had been destroyed by the earthquake, spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to lay the groundwork for a school to be started in the village of Guitton. Guitton has never had a school in its history, and the children in the village are vastly uneducated. We hoped to be able to raise money to operate a school out of an existing church building, employ 6 Haitian teachers and 1 principal, and to teach the students about Jesus. I worked with an organization called SMI Haiti who have have been doing work in Haiti for the past 15 years.
