Though it hasn’t received as much media attention recently, the work in Haiti continues–much of the infrastructure remains battered and broken, and the nation of Haiti still has a long way to go before it reaches stability.
We were given the amazing opportunity of partnering with Churches Helping Churches, an organization which provides support and development aid to churches and pastors who are often the de facto leaders in the heart of affected communities, as a complement to the initial waves of humanitarian aid that pour into a country in the wake of a disaster. CHC worked with local church leaders to organize a memorial service in the heart of Port Au Prince, just across from the collapsed Presidential Palace.
We were invited as part of a media team to cover the service. With an estimated 40,000+ people in attendance, what we were able to witness was nothing short of amazing.
It was a time of remembering and mourning–but even more potent was the overwhelming sense of joy, celebration, and hope.
