Our church just returned from visiting Haiti. Unfortnuately, it was not in the cards for me to join them this year. This year God had decided that my husband and I would become parents much sooner than we initially planned. It has taken a lot of prayer and reflection to understand His change in timing as I so wanted to get back to Haiti, back to my little girl, before we started a family of our own. I have prayed and prayed that God will continue to reveal His plans to me and that He will get me back to my little girl in Haiti as soon as He can.
Luckily for me, though, a special friend in my life was on this recent trip to Grand Goave with her mother and oldest daughter. I sent money and pictures for Rood Phania and asked Carrie if they would meet with her in my place. After getting home, Carrie sent me the pictures they had taken with Rood and her darling mother. I'll admit, it was difficult to ask someone to go in my place to send my love to my little girl but I had no doubt that of anyone who would send my love properly and in its entirity, it was Carrie.
Unfortunately, Carrie brought home some news I was praying not to hear. As of the last I knew, Rood and her family were staying with family friends and although that in itself wasn't ideal, it was atleast a roof over their heads. Today, Rood and her family sleep on the streets. They are homeless. My little girl is homeless and my heart aches.
Please share our story with your friends. Please help me to raise the money to build my little girl a house. I know that if I can raise this money, I can find a way to get back there to build it myself. Every dollar counts. Rood needs it now more than ever.
