Finding Hope in a Disaster-Stricken Land

Rick Allen of our Portland, Oregon office and his wife Liz travelled on a mission trip to the tropical land of Haiti. A devastated country, consumed with a flattened infrastructure, corrupt government, and Haitian people that continue to push forward for the sake of their nation.

"The second I stepped off the plane, it looked like a war zone,” said Rick. In 2010 the country was hit by a hurricane that killed over 400,000 people and “no one is even talking about it.” Even though their worlds are crumbling around them, smiles light up the streets from every direction.
