Take a student to a Coldplay concert – big lights – heavy production – lots of energy – they are in awe.
Take a student to the poorest place in the western hemisphere – no electricity – lots of heat and discomfort – thick with poverty –
they are transformed.
Help Heal Haiti and NWHCM give you the Restore Retreat – an in-Haiti retreat to awaken, equip and empower a generation to change their world.
You see… take a student away from their phone – away from facebook - away from youtube – from air conditioning and paved roads – away from “life-as-we-know-it” American culture… and step into the real world of Northwest Haiti… something incredible happens. It’ something that you cannot create – something that can’t be manipulated… their eyes are opened – they begin to listen to clear voice of the Living God who has created them for more than existence and passing trends… He’s created them to live – to be alive – to step into their potential…
The experience of Haiti joined with teaching, worship and reflection brings forth a response beyond what a formal trip or camp experience can provide. It equips and empowers a movement of awakened Christ-followers to live the gospel throughout their everyday lives. This is an opportunity for two worlds to collide and bring to the surface a beautiful new perspective. A perspective that recognizes a suffering world and begins to see it through the eyes of Jesus. Most importantly, this is the opportunity to become the change this world so desperately needs, the very change Jesus calls us to be.
