We would like to thank you for considering a trip with us to Haiti. The time you spend in Haiti will stay with you for a long time, if not the rest of your life. You will be moved by the lovely and spirited people of Haiti as you travel around; what you see will make you want to cry, to laugh, to pray…. and when you leave, you will want to return. We, at HTPB, are blessed tremendously by our work, and we are also blessed to share this time with you. A trip to Haiti is a life-changing experience; from the hearts of those who have traveled with us in the past, we can say ‘YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME’

 “I saw what I saw and I can’t forget it* I heard what I heard and I can’t go back* I know what I know and I can’t deny it* Something on the road cut me to the soul* your pain has changed me, your dream inspires* Your face a memory, your hope a fire* Your courage asks me what I am afraid of,
and what I know of love*
Sara Groves
