I realize that I have yet to post pictures from my recent trips to Haiti and Guatemala for International Orphan Support. My apologies. I was privileged to visit 5 orphanages, 3 in Haiti and 2 in Guatemala from April 16-23. Below are a few of the children I met and memories I made. The children are from Destiny Village in Haiti and El Amor de Patricia and Casa Shalom in Guatemala. I hope you enjoy seeing their faces and will consider making a donation to help provide for their needs. The best way to do so is to support our Run for Love 5K which takes place this Saturday, May 12. Here is the link with the details.
I returned to Haiti for a brief visit for my work with International Orphan Support (iorphan.cc). I spent the first day and night at Destiny Village, an amazing home for children in Pierre Payan. The setting is right on the west coast, 2 hours north of Port au Prince. It feels like a little bit of Paradice here, considering the conditions the children came from and the shape their country is in. I found the kids to be loving and welcoming of me.They are just beautiful.
My visit is brief, early tomorrow I leave for the Duffailly orphanage with my good friends Jim and Gina Hudson. Many thanks to the Destiny Village family – I hope to see you again sometime soon!
