ON MISSION IN HAITI - JTJ TRIP 2010
Got a personal tour of a tent village and discovered some harrowing realities there
It is the most heart-wrenching thing. To see people in need--more correctly in dire need—and not be able to do anything for them, at least right then and there when you come face-to-face with that need.
Today, with a side kick from Haiti Outreach Ministries, Nathan Lee, and a translator, we visited the tent villages of Tapis Vert and Cappva in the city of Citie Soleil, seeking to go even deeper in discovering the reality of the tent villages. At these sites, we toured the camp in full, even went inside one of the tents, and spoke directly to some of the leaders to access needs as they continue to try to restart their lives.
Exploring the hardest hit spots of the earthquake
In this blog entry, Adam Cole explores the epicenter of the earthquake, Port-au-Prince. He observes the destruction up close, weeping over the rubble and squalor of a once beautiful place, but finding hope in the glee of the children there.
Helping the housing endeavor with Haiti Outreach Ministries
On mission in Haiti, Adam Cole gives a description of the day of life in Haiti and some of the work that he is contributing in conjunction with Haiti Outreach Ministries. Part of the work, as he describes in this blog, is to put the roofing on homes that will go to people affected by the earthquake.
