God has called our team to work alongside, encourage, uplift and love on our brothers and sisters on the island of Hispaniola in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Brown Horse Projects has been traveling there with various teams and many willing participants for more than a decade. Over this time, our eyes have been opened to poverty unlike anything we've seen in other travels and mission trips, to spiritual confusion and un-Godly practices, to disease, dirt, destruction and devastation. But when God reveals things in the world that require our attention, He also provides a way. His way for our team in Haiti and the DR was led by an opening of our hearts, so that what we see in country is so much more beautiful that what meets the eye. In Haitian people we see warriors, princesses, princes, humble servants and kind-hearted men and women, farmers, teachers, engineers, students, we see people who've been mistreated, discarded, underestimated and are working to survive and make their tiny piece of this big world a better place for their children and their children's children. We see our friends. we see their families and we return to share love. ❤️
