Haiti: The Hopeful Side
Last January, WORLD Magazine embedded Editor Mindy Belz in the GO Adventures Run d’Haiti experience. Her goal was to understand the dynamics of The Global Orphan Project on the ground in Haiti, but to also be a participant on a Vision Trip, instead of her common role as distant observer.
Mindy has spent the past two decades reporting from the trenches in the Middle East. In particular, her work in Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan has positioned her as an expert on Middle East dynamics, particularly one with a Christian world-view. But Haiti was new to her.
During the Run d’Haiti, Mindy experienced a side of Haiti too often left on the sidelines of reporting—the hopeful side. She enjoyed running through Haiti’s countryside, playing with the children in Leogane and Croix des Bouquets, as well as meeting our partners with the GO Exchange, Paula Coles and Shelley Clay of Papillon.
In the February 22nd issue of WORLD Magazine, Mindy shares her impressions of Haiti and the promising efforts of business-minded ministries, including the GO Exchange’s newest partner, Papillon, as well as the orphan care work of The Global Orphan Project.
