My first ministry trip to The island of Haiti turned into a love affair. The island and it’s culture are spellbinding. The people of Haiti are the poorest in the western hemisphere yet possess a dimension of resolve unlike any other people I have ever ministered among.
Each morning the race to survive begins. Some make it, but sadly many don’t. Most children have a very short life expectancy and everyday mothers search to find a morsel of food to put into their baby’s mouths. Poverty disease sickness and crime are everywhere. Yet in the midst of this tragic environment there remains a wonderful song of hope in the mouths of the peasant people. Yes hope! There are many churches in Haiti amidst all the voodoo worship, and many believers are very strong in their faith in GOD. They overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and love not their life even unto death. This is how they overcome poverty, corruption, sickness and disease! By JESUS and JESUS alone. Of all the nations I have been privileged to minister in the LORD has sent me into Haiti more than any other! The need in Haiti is great! But our GOD is greater than the need. Haiti will bow the knee to JESUS!
