We shot this video after a hard, long day. We expected to venture to the other side of Haiti to visit another Help One Now project, but one of the van’s brakes failed (fun!). So we headed back to the orphanage we’d visited earlier. On the way, our blogging team decided this wasn’t an accident, that perhaps God was asking us to dream big for this orphanage.
The school helps the community, not just the children in the orphanage. And it’s open air. Wind and rain invade the school when there’s inclement weather. We decided we’d like to build those kids a school. So here I am, pigtailed and tired, sharing our vision. Please watch with an open heart.
