|Haiti and the mustard seed|
|Thursday, 30 August 2012 10:21|
It's been my privilege to write a number of stories about the Haiti Hospital Appeal in the last few years.
So much has been achieved it is easy to overlook that the charity began at the Baptist World Congress of 2005, when Carwyn Hill and Johnnie Horner, then 21, were challenged to take issues of poverty and injustice seriously.
Since then HHA has opened a health centre opened in 2007, an ambulance service, a children's disability respite centre and much more. It has had a dramatic effect on the healthcare situation in north Haiti.
Now, as the Paralympics is to start, its work and that of its partners such as BMS World Mission is about to have a significant impact in the journey of eradicating the social stigma that accompanies disability in countries like Haiti.
It's a story that began with a couple of students, a Haitian pastor, a post it note and a mustard seed of faith. Carwyn freely speaks of the role God has played in HHA and The Dream.
Is there something you feel God is nudging you towards? It is worth remembering that for people of faith, anything is possible.
