Martha and I spent the day talking with farmers and cow herders. These individuals in rural, southwest Haiti are hard working and enjoyable. What a pleasure to listen and hear of their challenges and successes. There is certainly power in a story. Martha and I desire to come alongside individuals and communities in Haiti to provide an avenue to express their story. We are telling these stories:
- To encourage you about how lives are being changed
- To remain transparent as an organization about how our resources are being used
- To show people with means ways to become involved in long term development
At this time, World Concern Haiti does not have the resources to quickly communicate its’ impact on people’s lives. This is why our role in the organization is key.
During our week in Haiti we have seen the value of communicating great stories and cannot wait to return and do it full time! Tomorrow we will leave Haiti (for now!) and fly back to Seattle. This trip has been very beneficial in preparing us for long term service. We are looking forward to talking with you soon and sharing more about what is going on here in Haiti. Thank you for your partnership!
