    Astounding photos Barry. Their eyes bore into my heart. Thank God for Nehemiah Vision Ministries.

    Keep these faces before us. Keep wrecking us.

    these children are absolutely beautiful. Their eyes are amazing – smiles and no-smiles…both so telling. You have done a wonderful job, Barry, of allowing us to peer into hearts of these babes. Caring little about anything but the basic needs, these kiddos can love like Jesus…and how amazing is that. THEIR vision is clearer than ours. They need the “stuff” of this world to keep their bodies alive but have a very alive spirit. We, here in the states (for the most part) have everything we need and more for our bodies yet struggle to tap into the Holy Spirit who lives within us. How much these little ones, these impoverished ones teach us. I love, love, love them.

    Thanks, Barry, for introducing us to yet another movement of God through Nehemiah Vision Ministries. Your amazing photos tell their story so well! May God bless Pastor Pierre and his team as they continue to bring life and faith to these children, and may many partner with them to this end.

    Barry: Your writing is incredible. As a professional photographer myself (and to have also been to Chambrun) I am amazed at your photography. It totally captures the innocence, love and hope in the hearts of the children of Haiti. I would love to see all your adventures in print one day… you know coffee book style. Thanks for all you do to share God around the world.

    Hey Barry – i loved the reference of Pastor Pierre and the children with Jesus – as “let the children come to me”. He lives, loves and models that so well. Thanks for capturing his and their story in this.
