For the Love of Children

Playing with Haiti Children


This was my 4th Mission Trip to Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. My daughter, Sarah, went with me this time. It was an eye opening experience for her and her friend that came, too.

In Haiti, our team worked in the orphanage.  I really enjoyed working with the kids. Their smiles are a joy!

The children loved playing pass the ball, blowing bubbles, and playing in the sand with the new sand toys (buckets and little shovels) we brought for them to play with.

Here I am holding two of the smallest children. It was hard to get these two sweeties to crack a smile, but when they did, the result was nothing short of beautiful. Just holding them was a joy, too!

These children swarm towards you when you enter the gate and don’t want to let you go. They enjoy just sitting in your lap getting hugs or are willing to play games.

If you love being with children, you might consider a trip to Haiti or another country to play with the children.
