I’ll never forget washing the feet of the nannies.
Pastor Brandon allowed us to participate in his Wednesday Bible study time with them. We filled bins with water and bath salts and washed the feet of these caregivers who have dedicated themselves to the children. At one point I noticed a large, open wound on the leg of one of the ladies. I had a hard time not having a noticeable reaction of shock or concern. It was then I had to simply let go of my fear and worry and trust that God would work in the hearts of those ladies by our simple act of pampering. We asked Brandon to convey the message of “Thank you” for their sacrifice in the care of these children and tell them what a blessing they were in His Kingdom. Kari Montgomery
Perspective Haiti is such a beautiful country!
It gives us such a chance to see the Power and Majesty of God! For a day and a half, we chopped rocks attempting to remove them for the construction of houses for children. We worked so hard, we could hardly move the next day. All of this to say, with one breath, God created all of this, and with much labor, we could barely put a dent into it. Working on the construction part, we weren't able to see the end result of our work. However, when we played with the children, we realized that we were helping to make a place for them to enjoy to the fullest, in love and safety. Brandon Summitt
