Throughout our years in Haiti, we have experienced great joys, times of devastating hardship, and everything in between. But there has been one aspect that has surprised us the most and one thing we could never have predicted.
It is the spiritual transformation that we have witnessed amongst the LiveBeyond employees. It is one of the greatest blessings to experience! Many of the LiveBeyond employees have been with us since the beginning of our work in Thomazeau, Haiti. Throughout the years, we have seen the employees transform into becoming the living definition of loving your neighbor.
Multiple staff members have brought children into their homes who otherwise would have gone without shelter. Others make extra stops on their way to work to ensure children with special needs have a ride to school.
Some of our nurses work after hours checking on mothers in the maternal health program if they have missed a week or two of their clinic visits. The list could go on of the selfless acts each of the employees make to ensure their community is cared for.
They are truly living out the word of the Lord to love your neighbor as yourself, and they have become obedient to the Lord’s call to serve one another.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” – Matthew 22:37-39
It is a great blessing to watch the spiritual transformation within the community of Thomazeau, Haiti. The Lord is doing great things, and we are grateful to be a part of it.
