“One of the things that surprised me most about my trip to Haiti was that God sent me to realize that I loved these people and that His perfect love really does cast out fear. I went to Haiti with a few fears. Fear of violence, fear of what I would see, fear of not being different when I came home. The fear was chipped away in the back of a pickup truck. Then those fears were completely displaced by God’s perfect love being shown by an elderly Haitian woman in a banana field. I may not be able to change Haiti, but witnessing this woman’s compassion changed me. I want to be more like her. On this trip at least, Haiti gave me more than I gave Haiti.

“I reversed the camera to show them their first family portrait – featuring one well-rehearsed grin and a smaller blue blur. I then listened and watched as she gestured to the screen and seemed to explain that this was a picture of him. Their home in Williamson is far from standing water to provide reflections and mirrors are an impractical luxury. It is possible that he had never before seen himself and didn’t recognize the boy in the picture.
Scott Defoe, Mission Team Member
“I had been praying for God to show me how to help others. Should I send money to support a student in Haiti or work with mission projects? Should I send financial aid or collect clothes, formula, or school supplies? I. I. I. I. I. That’s when God smacked me in the head, knocked me in the water and showed me that it’s not about me.
Kimberly Curry, Mission Team Member
“Jimmy and Johnson had two other friends near by – both named Jimmy. I spent about two hours talking with Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy (called “the Jimmy’s” by me) and Johnson while we walked through the community. They are sharp young men who love God and have regular meals – thanks to World Wide Village.
But for every child like “the Jimmy’s” or Johnson, there are countless others without homes, without food – despite having 6 children to feed, pregnant without healthcare and most important: without God.
