An Eye-Opening Experience

By Daniel Treharne, UK

I spent three months working in Haiti with MFMOMS. Living in the capital city of Port-au-Prince was comfortable, the weather was exceptional, good food, a safe place to stay, and plenty of friends to guide me around the city. The mission at the Bon Repos 3.18 acre site is to build 35 houses, a school/church, and bore 3 wells. The vision is that this community will share the gospel with those that live on the barren mountains nearby.

I worked with teams from America, hand-inhand with local workers. Every day began with a time of devotion – a song, a shared word, and time of prayer aided by our translators. Then the work started. The skilled Haitians were responsible for the concrete and block work, forming the foundations, and plastering the walls. The carpentry, trusses, ceilings and doors, and finishing the roof with metal sheets was done by teams.

Being in a third world country was an eye opening experience. I saw extreme poverty, terrible living conditions, and heard horror stories of their daily lives. Some of the effects of the earthquake are still visible, five years following the disaster.

But the greatest surprise for me was the joy of the people I met. Some had lost everything, struggling through life, but persevering without complaint. Also, their dependency on God was inspirational. We can pay our way through life, their first and perhaps only option, is to pray their way through life.
