Karen Carey - Haiti 2007
||This mission trip to Haiti was
an adventure in so many ways. I had never before been on a mission
trip, and my biggest fear didn't have to do with getting sick
or persecution for my faith, but rather getting out of my comfort
zone, knowing I'd have to get up in front of people and share
But what helped me overcome
that was how much I came to love the people of Haiti, which
wasn't hard. The people there aren't afraid to show that they
love you. I ended up wanting to share with them, despite my
fears and my feelings of inadequacy as a "public speaker".

||As much as people say we're blessed
to be living in America, I think that the people in Haiti are
blessed even more. Their joy in their faith, their uncontained
enthusiasm for worshipping God, and the way they love unconditionally
told me that we Americans, with all our material possessions
are the ones missing out.
|The Haitian peoples' simple lifestyle keeps
them from being distracted, and as a result, they have a relationship
with God that I know I don't have. It's a challenge to me to
push aside all those distractions of material things and just
press into deepening my relationship with God.
With all that said, I know that I left a part of myself there in Haiti.
I'm thankful for Restoration Ministries and the work they're doing,
and I can't wait to go back again.
