“Behold I am doing a new thing: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” —Isaiah 43:19
During VBS 2016 this past week, this vision was abundant. You might not recognize its power right off the bat. Looking around VBS at Cavaillon, Haiti, at the Cancer Redemption Campus (CRP), you would probably say to yourself, “These look like healthy, smart children who are growing up with loving parents.” And they are.
But things were not always like this. Each of the 223 children at VBS has a story—one of pain, rejection and an incredible need for someone like you to take action on their behalf.
Children like Cassie* who roamed the streets of Port a Prince as a four-year-old orphan. She had no clothes and no food unless she could scrounge scraps from trash heaps. By a sheer miracle in her life, she was brought to a Home of Hope family.
This week, Cassie was running around in a beautiful frilly dress with her sisters—her belly full and her future bright.
God is indeed doing a new thing. And this week at VBS was another powerful reminder of God’s hand in Haiti, using your gifts to rewrite the stories of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
Thank you for making these powerful changes possible!
