It was a thrill and a blessing to have our friend and hero Danita Estrella-Watts and her husband John on the farm last week. They stopped by for a brief visit along with Sheree Bowie (U.S. Director of Danita’s Children) and her husband Mike. We laughed later, remembering that is was only a few years ago that Cherie discovered Danita’s Children while searching the internet for a needy and worthwhile way to help Haitian children.
What Danita has accomplished in Haiti in her dozen years there is astonishing. Haiti is a place where it is notoriously difficult to accomplish anything. Yet this year what began as a woman in a rented house with a few orphans and little else, is now an orphanage, school, church, clinic and soon-to-be first rate pediatric medical facility.
I mentioned our missionary friends in Haiti recently, but didn’t think to link some of their blogs. Not all the missionaries blog, but here are a few links from a few who do. Their stories are good reminders of what life outside our borders can be like.
