“This trip has made me realize that all we really need is God. He will provide us with anything we need. The Haitians live remembering this, and I want to remember it too.”
“I loved going through the neighbourhood near the worksite where we were working. We prayed for numerous people and it opened my eyes to what their daily lives were like.”
