What to Expect:   God is transforming lives (our lives and the children) through our trips to Haiti. While our goal is to love the Haitian children through events like Vacation Bible School, we are more often the recipients of the blessing.  Getting outside of our own environment often shows us a bigger view of the world and of God, which is why Istrouma is going to Haiti.
