Written by Emelia Ferrero. Media by Kelsey Neier. Project One Haiti, an organization operating out of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, demonstrates this kind of faith. James 1:27 tells us pure and undefiled religion before God is to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and this is exactly what POH is about.
This past weekend was Urban Plunge, a 24-hour mission trip to St. Louis. The students who attended had the privilege of riding down to St. Louis on Friday night and staying in the Hampton Inn by Forest Park. We made the decision to arrive on Friday night because we had to be at the organization extremely early Saturday morning. At the hotel that night, we watched the movie To Save a Life and had a discussion afterwards about the implications of the movie—taking responsibility for one’s actions within the scope of God’s converting grace. If you have not seen the movie, it is a fictional movie about one boy’s journey to Christ after his childhood best friend commits suicide.
