Thanks from Kent, Enel and Edvard

 In Holistic Churches Program

May 25, 2011

I was so grateful for the chance to visit 20 cities across the U.S. and Canada on my recent book tour with “After Shock.” Thank you to everyone I spoke with at universities, churches, seminaries, and bookstores. Thank you to those who helped organize these events.

It’s an honor to tell stories of Haiti within this bigger story of faith and doubt, suffering and hope. We work for education in Haiti, but are also consciously seeking to be on the side of God’s justice and love in the world. Below is a 1-minute “thank you” video I made in Haiti with Enel and Edvard, who are in the book.

We also wanted to let you know that I (and John and other colleagues) can be available to speak to churches, universities, and other groups. We’re always grateful for invitations to speak about justice, faith, missions, and other topics as we start new — or strengthen existing — partnerships with Haiti Partners. If you’re interested, we look forward to talking. Please send an email to

Thank you for letting us be part of your story. With hope & gratitude,

Kent (and John)
