Jesus expects us to take care of one another. He looks after the least of these and I believe we should too.
At Clean Water for Haiti, we find joy in partnering with our donors. We collaborate together to serve the communities in our region by providing clean water and could do nothing without your generosity and financial support.
We’ve been called the hands and feet in Haiti. Living here with a heart for service and a love for the Haitians. No matter our story or background, we must take care of one another, just as Jesus asks of us.
We all understand that the least of these are indeed the poor. Most Haitians live in poverty, lacking adequate shelter, food and clean water. They are missing the basic necessities of life, which defines them as poor. Poor, yet not in spirit or faithfulness and from this comes their joy.
There are many reasons why Haiti is a difficult country, challenging circumstances, lack of resources and so many hard things to face each day. Amidst these difficulties, the Haitians still find joy in life. I find their faith stronger than mine. Though they may be classified as poor, they are rich in faith. When I witness or experience their faith is when I become the least of these. There is so much to learn from them. And so, they now they take care of me by sharing their hearts. Jesus expects us to take care of one another.
We are here to help the poor, yet we are here together. The Haitians and the foreigners both serving together from a place of love and grace. And this brings joy for all of us.
We wish you a beautiful holiday season and hope you find your joy in the most surprising places!
