The Journey Begins

Hell exists and its address is Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  It is not a place populated by sinners.  No, it is filled with a millions of beautiful souls, who's only crime was the bad luck of being born in a place of such abject poverty and filth.  A place where starvation abounds.  A place where people live in hovels.  A place where a newborn child has a good chance of contracting typhoid, or malaria, or polio.  A place that, until now, had no medical care available for its millions of impoverished people.  

Add to those conditions a devastating earthquake that destroyed what little the people did have.

This is the face of Haiti.

This is the image that touched our souls as we entered this place of disease, despair, and devastation.
