Not a Happy Ending

By | 2018-01-09T16:52:16+00:00 January 9th, 2018|Compassion Corp, Holistic Care, Worldview|

As we sat in the shade, enjoying unhurried gulps of water, we felt the flutter of excitement in our hearts as we came to a closing of a passion-filled conversation. We sat on our tiled steps outside my screened bedroom windows, with eagerness from our renewed remembrance of His power, the things we ourselves have experienced, [...]

Kokobè

By | 2017-12-07T15:15:18+00:00 December 7th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Holistic Care|

The Woman I was hearing talk around the community about a woman I adore who I hadn’t seen in a few weeks that is now “kokobè”. This Kreyol word means handicapped. The woman that broke my heart in 2015, who even in her old age, decided to care for her orphaned granddaughter. With this young, spunky [...]

Are You Longing For Relationship?

By | 2017-11-22T14:48:23+00:00 November 22nd, 2017|Compassion Corp|

I love, love. I’m talking about the kind of love that awakes you out of the depths of your sleep, simple thoughts of moments shared with them warming your heart. A love that causes you to travel miles upon miles just to spend a short amount of time with them. Love that causes you to [...]

The Walk of Many Orevwa’s

By | 2017-11-09T18:28:26+00:00 November 9th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

59. Friendships, experiences, tears, joy, fear, baptisms, growth, and finally, time. This figure symbolizes much to me. Could you guess it? This is the number of people that I have lived with since starting this life with Breathe. Other than my faithful friend Stephanie, who has more years here in Haiti than I do, this [...]

Surrendering By Becoming A Baby

By | 2017-10-30T15:03:19+00:00 October 30th, 2017|Compassion Corp, Worldview|

Becoming Moving to a different country is weird. It is stretching. Scary. Exciting. Growing. And just about every other adjective you can think of could potentially fit into this category of "moving countries". Sometimes, it is simply just hilarious. Might I say, moving to our little country of Haiti is like becoming 13 again. At [...]

The Boy Who Stole My Selfishness

By | 2017-10-16T15:40:59+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Holistic Care, Worldview|

My head was thrashing. My body rebelling against itself. My brain ready to shatter trying to finish my school paper due that night. And then my name was being called. A need at the gate. What a funny life this is compared to home life in America. Imagine. Maybe you are in the middle of [...]

The Sound of Forgiveness

By | 2017-09-14T17:02:20+00:00 September 14th, 2017|Compassion Corp|

The Sound of Your Name The young man dressed in white spoke in peace, knowing why they had come. “You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is not here.” Did you [...]

One in Six Million…

By | 2017-09-11T13:22:23+00:00 September 11th, 2017|Compassion Corp|

I remember a couple years ago, walking to the highest peak of an unfamiliar mountain, making the steep hike up by a rocky, dirt road. I recall wishing I wore sturdier shoes, as the unevenness of the road was just begging to twist my ankles. We made our way to the top to visit a [...]

Walking Flavors

Kneeling, I clenched her one open hand with both of mine. Her body frail and tiny compared to mine. Hunched onto a tiny seat, hair falling on both sides of her shoulders, colorful earrings draping from her ears. Tattoos covering most of her uncovered, pale skin. I thought she was beautiful. I begged for her [...]
