The woman pictured above is one of the toughest, hardest working, most intelligent ladies you'll ever meet.  

She is a lot like many women in Haiti. 

She is strength. She is beauty. 

She works hard, loves well, does her best to keep her chin up and keep feeding and educating her kids. Her day to day life looks very different from ours. We cannot easily imagine what it is like to walk in her shoes.

She and her husband have seen a lot of life.  They have walked through horrors and injustice and come out the other side still smiling and relying on their faith in Christ to carry them through the next thing.  We're blessed to know them and observe the gracious and courageous way they face adversity.  

These are people we can all learn from.  If you're ever in Haiti, look around and observe, you'll see strength in every direction you look. The Haitian people have much to teach us.
