Child Hope International
June 26, 2012
It's such a humbling experience to spend a week in Haiti serving with Bill, Sue, their children and so many beautiful servants of God with Child Hope International. We have just returned from our sixth trip and are still reeling from what God has shown us this time. Every trip is different, but every trip is an experience we'll never forget. It's as though you come into the presence of God when you hold one of the little ones, and your forever changed because of it. My wife and I have known the Manasseros for about 17 years now, atleast since Vienna was in the womb. We have been so blessed to have walked with them through various stages leading up to their bold and courageous move to Haiti about 8 years ago. God has blessed the work of their hands and not because they had great ability but because they had great availability! I mean no disrespect to their abilities but "Elijah was a man just like us..." Jam 5:17 It's such a humbling and inspiring thing to witness what God can do through his willing, faithful, and available servants! Be changed, visit CHI in Haiti, you will not forget it!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
witnessing the graduation of the young woman we were supporting and seeing her make a living on her own now.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
teach Susette how to drive in Haiti. :)
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
Allow me to volunteer permanently.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
As always, it's like being in the presence of God for a short time. Not that He ever leaves us but almost like I got to walk on holy ground for a week.
