A photo series …

Orphan girls at One Vision orphanage in Haiti.


Two good buddies in a Haitian village.


Orphan boys at One Vision orphanage, praying.


And finally, this one. Note the T-shirt on this boy at the orphanage.

    Oh, my.

    I can’t do better than that right there.

  2. S. Etole

    Yes. Oh, my. Prayers, Jennifer, for all of you.

  3. Christine

    Beautiful posts, Jennifer. All of them. Thank you for sharing so beautifully how He is with them, and how He aches for us to be with them, too, loving and helping. Thank you.

    They are precious in His Sight…and in ours. Thank you for seeing for us, Jennifer.

    Jennifer, your posts are so inspiring. I’m sitting here with a smile on my lips, tears in my eyes and an ache in my heart.

    Dear Lord, help me to be part of the answer and not part of the problem. Please take this longing in my heart and make something Kingdom beautiful with it.

    My favorite is the praying boys.

    I bet you feel yourself changing with each snap of the camera.

    Beautiful, beautiful portraits of God’s people.

    More tears. Thanks, Jennifer, for letting me look over your shoulder upon these beautiful children.

    Like you. You’re one of His beautiful children.

    “Red, yellow, black, white
    They’re all precious in His sight.”

    Beautiful images, beautiful thoughts.

    My Dad is the Big Kahuna too! 🙂

    Gorgeous Jennifer – the photos, the scriptures that expose truth, and your heart. And I have to say that I have been astounded at your ability to post while you are in Haiti. I would say that is a miracle right there.

  12. Shari Miller

    Visiting today for the first time. You truly captured who they were. It’s as if you can look into their eyes and see their soul. Beautiful!

  13. Carol J. Garvin

    Such beautiful children! Beautiful people, all part of our family and loved by the Father of us all. The scripture verses are the perfect accompaniment, reminding us of a need… theirs and ours. Thank you for this, and for sharing via Still Saturday.

  14. Deidra

    You. Better and better and really incredible. God is using you, my friend. Big time!

  15. Megan Willome

    This week you have given us the gift of a perfect photo essay. Some people get carried away and post more pictures than my heart can take in, but you have done just enough (for me, anyway).

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  16. Deborahjoy

    love your pictures and your words. I feel humbled. I want to reach in and touch those faces and say: ‘you are loved’. Oh, my.

  17. Cindee Snider Re

    Oh…there could be nothing more beautiful, more breathtaking, more real than what you’ve shared…nothing that could draw me closer to God in prayer for those sweet, little souls.

  18. Joanne Norton

    YES!! He is Father to the fatherless, and a Father of the ones who have an un-fathery father. [When I was in Uganda, I had to deal with some of these same issues… touched my heart internally forever and eternity.]Blessings.

  19. Missy

    What beautiful, wonderful pictures.
    sometimes a picture really IS worth a thousand words.
