It was supposed to be 6 days, but the Jamesons were blocked from departing when post-election violence caused American Airlines to shut down its flights. Still, Steve says, “if we had paid for this as a vacation, we would call it a fabulous adventure trip. We climbed mountains, forded rivers, rode in taxis across rickety bridges and ate different foods. But this trip was not an adventure vacation. We went to work, expecting adventure and opposition and the victory of God. We found it!”
As you read, you will sense the grace of God being poured into the lives and times of rural ans.
The Jamesons dedicated this fascinating memoir to the of Jabwen Road, the area west of Chantal. Like other parts of Haiti, Chantal has been dramatically and forever changed by the hurricanes, earthquakes and cholera epidemic of recent years.
To mourn with the People of Haiti, especially with Friends along Jabwen Road, Steve wrote “For Haiti, For Jabwen”. The words of the poem come from Haiti.  
For Haiti, For Jabwen
I see, I cry,
I see, I cry,
But I find hope. 
My hope, my hope, is Jesus. 
I find my hope in Jesus 
As the man who came to faith one night at the Chantal revival said after his profession of faith,  “Mwen kontan nan Jezi!” In Jesus, I am satisfied. May it be so for you. 
May the of this book encourage you about Haiti and its People. May you find joy, life and who could be your . And may the peace of Christ be with you!
