Of all the nonfiction books I’ve read, this one might be the one that has touched me the most deeply. Over unbelievable and insurmountable odds, one young woman waged a war against darkness for a handful of Haitian children—and won.
Megan Boudreaux paid a brief visit to Haiti in 2010, just after the earthquake that devastated that country. While there, she hiked up to a beautiful old tamarind tree sitting by itself on top of Bellevue Mountain.
She went home, and the dreams started. She would dream about that tree night after night and wake up with her heart pounding in excitement. She went in to talk to her boss about these crazy dreams and how much she’d been impressed by the children and people.
In the middle of her ramblings, her boss spoke up. “If you think God is calling you to Haiti, you absolutely need to go. If it doesn’t work out there will always be a place for you here.”
So she went. No plan in mind, no one with her, no funding, no sponsors—just a dream and a destination, Gressier, Haiti. So many amazing and miraculous things unfold from that little step of obedience—you’ve got to read the book to believe it.
