|Shelley and Corrigan Clay of The Apparent Project|
In 2011, I visited The Apparent Project in Haiti. While there, I was tasked to help out AP's efforts by taking photos of their newer Haitian artisans. My job was to take each person's picture and interview them through a local Creole interpreter - learning about their individual lives and then recording it in a few short sentences. Can you imagine summarizing someone's life in a few short sentences? It was difficult, but it was important. For these sentences would later be put onto tags that would be attached to each artist's work, giving them credit for future sales.
Even while performing this duty, I knew that the Lord had put these specific people before me to pray for on a regular basis. You see, many (if not all) whom I met had lost loved ones in the recent earthquake that occurred in Port au Prince. Many were living in tents (or worse) with no plumbing and no fresh water.

Small blessings that are really BIG blessings!
Please take a moment to really review each photo and consider how you would handle living in such conditions. Then, remember that Jesus commands us to help those in such need. Let's always remember to love, pray for, and support every person God has put before us!
Love love love in JESUS' name!!!

|Just like any other day for these people.|
|This street actually had a real road to drive upon. Blessing!!!|
