On June 13th, my sister, my niece, and I flew to Haiti to visit the Village of Joy. I wanted to see the progress firsthand and to meet the families that we're helping.
We were only in Haiti for three days, but we return with a lifetime of memories. During our stay, I met with each of the twenty-three families that have received houses so far. Every family has a story, and I intend to share as many of them as possible over the weeks to come.
Please be patient. I was so busy talking to the families that I hardly took any pictures. As a result, I am currently collecting pictures taken by others. Once I have pictures, I'll begin posting family stories. In the meantime, I'm writing up my thoughts and overall impressions of what we saw.
Stay tuned. I can't wait to share more!
