Thankful to the friends who saw the need and helped us believe it was possible to do something. Thankful to the friends who financially gave to make this day possible. Thankful to those who continue to pray for Haiti Awake as we seek God's will regarding our future with these children.
And if we take the risk of personally touching and being touched by a suffering person, the miracle of sight can break into our own darkness.
When the clarity of compassion illuminates our vision, we can visualize healing that goes far deeper than physical cure. Through eyes of faith we recognize that this could be an opportunity for tragedy to be transformed into celebration so that the power of God may be seen at work in him and in her.
And even more amazing , when we stoop to personally touch one of these “undesirables” with hands-on care, we are touching the very heart of God :
---Thoughts from Bob Lupton.
Some days my heart is just so full of Haiti. Today is one of those days.
Prior to the August trip, I didn't know every single child at the orphanage by name. I knew their faces, and I had a list with all of their names and birthdays. But I couldn't match each individual child to his or her name.
But now I can.
And some days that's just so hard.
The other 4 children are Federick's own. And they're loved by us, too.
