For some of the members of the North Broadway UMC team, traveling to Haiti earlier this month was a brand new experience, while for others it was a homecoming. Each of them, though, returned with a new perspective.
“It was a really moving experience,” commented 17-year-old Cameron Atha. “We have never seen that kind of poverty before, and it was special for us to see so we could put our lives into perspective,” she said on behalf of her and her sister Chelsea’s feelings upon returning.
The group took some excellent photos, and we want to share with you Haiti through their eyes. Thank you to Cameron, Chelsea, Hallie, Mariann, Michele, Mercedes, Angela, Daniel, Marcus, and Grayson for spending a week in Haiti, for sharing your compassion with the children, and for opening your hearts and minds to all that the Haitian community has to offer.
