In a surprising way, living in a tent village has taught me what it means to be human.

    Once again you transport me to another place, break my heart, and give me hope all at once through your images and words. Thank you, Barry. (The picture of the feet and shoes is my favorite. Wow.)

    This came to mind as I looked at these powerful images. It is my prayer today for Haiti.

    Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    Thank you for sharing these photos. Although the situation is devestating, how amazing that we can see many God’s blessings here in your pictures in a shape of hope, generosity, brotherhood, smiles, etc. Your pictures well captured the hope people carry through in this country in this situation. I will do some small things that I can do for Haiti. Thank you for these inspiring pictures!

    Several Indy women gathered for the last month to sew skirts, dresses and shorts for Haitian children. One of the sew-ers wanted to make 100. I just dropped off 160 clothing items to be packed for an upcoming trip! And all they could ask me was, “Can we keep on doing this?”!!!
    They would love to see some pictures of the work of their hands, so I hope that some photos can filter back to IN.
    Thanks for being a catalyst via Nehemiah Vision Ministries for this project.
