On this day before Thanksgiving, I am reminded of our many trips to Haiti and the lessons that I learned. On our trips, the majority of our time was spent in a very small village in the mountains. There was no electricity, running water or indoor plumbing. It was a way of life completely foreign to my wife and I.
Initially, it was difficult, but then you realized how appreciative the people were of what little they did have. Who were we to complain or be inconvenienced about what we didn't have? I learned so many things during our trips, but the thing that sticks out the most is to always count your blessings and be appreciative of what you do have. Myself? I am guilty of often not doing that, but we can never take for granted our blessings.
The pictures in the video are not intended to give you a complete overview of what Haiti is like. There are many beautiful areas in the country.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. Thessalonians 5:18
