An image can tell more than a thousand words.
Life's companions are HOPE and FAITH in God. God is amazing everyday. He takes our prayers and gives us grace. We are so thankful for everything He has never stopped to provide in our lives, no matter what the circumstances.
We are in Haiti, at "Les Cayes," a place where the people have never stopped to be strong, to have faith, to struggle with life's obstacles, even after what Hurricane Matthew did to our beautiful countryside. According to the people who are living here, this place in Les Cayes is named "Gelee" where we are visiting and helping people who are in need. Gelee is a nice place where tourists would ever like to visit because of its natural, humid and fresh air nearby the beach.
Yes! You see "beach"? that's what I mean, a place to swim, to have fun and also to admire the marvelous sunset.
It's also a place where parents use their knowledge in fishing to earn their daily bread, to educate their children and maybe save some money for tomorrow. We also have farmers, vendors... different people who are using the natural resources to survive and try to gain a life.
Now they are facing a very bad situation where they can't even sleep without to have to think and fear about rain because most houses were touched and broken by the hurricane. Some people have lost almost everything, pets, house, garden... but God preserves their life.
They are still optimistic and do believe that there will always be a way that God will use to take care of his children and God does so.
This is Part 1 of a 5 part series we will share this week. More tomorrow...
