  • One Thing

       Every night in Haiti on the balcony of the Coreluv guesthouse our staff will lead each visiting team in a nightly devotion. It is a time intended for everyone to be able to unplug from the activities of the day to reflect upon Jesus. We almost always pose this question, "Where did you see Jesus today?"

What I didn’t expect, however, was that God would show me a fundamental part of his character.   Read More...
