Review for Hope Restored, Franklin, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I went on my first trip with Restore Haiti in March and the impact has been life changing. When we first got there, traveling through Port-Au-Prince I was shocked at the conditions of the city - I've never seen anything like it. Traveling through the mountains to Jacmel - I kept thinking, "There are good things in Haiti, Lord show me the good things here." I have to admit I struggled with the disparity of Haiti- things were either very beautiful or very horrible. Sitting in the small cinder block church on simple wooden benches with a community of believers worshiping our Lord, I saw the beautiful things in Haiti. Meeting my sponsor kids for the first time, hugging the preschoolers everyday at playtime, greeting the kids in the feeding program with a smile and eye contact everyday~ I saw the good things in Haiti. Having kids come up and just want to touch me or hold my hand~ there are so many good things in Haiti and Restore Haiti is making it possible for anyone to be a part of all the good things the Lord is doing there~we had 6 children under the age of 12 on our team and the impact on them will last throughout their lives...and mine.
