My New Friend in Leogane, Haiti - May, 2018
I met a young girl today in Leogane, Haiti running around with bare feet. Her name is Rodna and she is seven years old. When I asked her "where are your shoes?" she said that she had none.
Her little feet where scared and bruised, and I wondered if she had ever worn shoes. Then I noticed that many of the children running and playing on this narrow gravel road did not have shoes. I thought to myself how can I provide shoes for all these children?
What about those on the next alley, and the next, what about the next town? How many children here do not have shoes to protect their little feet? I became overwhelmed, this problem is so big. I thought a moment, prayed a bit, and even shed a tear. Then I looked again at my new friend Rodna, and a still soft voice inside me said, "What about these little feet".
I think much of the work God is doing in Haiti works like that. He doesn't ask us to carry a burden that we cannot. I think he asks us to serve those he calls us to, those that he puts in our path. Can I provide shoes for all these barefoot children, no. But my new friend Rodna has a new pair of shoes.
Thank you, God!

UPDATE August 20th, 2108: Our final push to send our bus off to Haiti. We will be meeting in Maple Plain, MN (5130 industrial Street #100) on Saturday September 1st to put the finishing touches on OUR bus shipment. So many have been so generous with items to send, and so many have helped load the bus to this point. Now we are on the final push. We’ll be securing construction equipment on top and stuffing every inch inside with shoes and clothing plus a whole lot more. Your help is needed in two ways, there is still much to do to load the bus and We are needing $4500 to ship this bus from Minnesota to Miami Florida then on a ship, to Meriquane Haiti. Please consider helping us in one or both of these areas.
