MY EXPERIENCE IN HAITI…
Coming here just after finishing med-school has been a wonderful and very deep experience for me. I have never considered in my life coming to Haiti, but I am sure now that it has been a beautiful present from God. I am a Colombian medical doctor, 23 years old, who believed in Jesus and was involved in catholic groups at university, but I think I have never felt Jesus as near as I have found him being here.
