Megan quit her good job in Louisiana, left family and friends, took a small amount of money, picked up her bags and started out again but God had the Blueprints.
Megan was in God's guided hands and his help brought together a team to help her. She and the team took care of about 500 children, built a school, provided a sport complex for the school, built a kitchen that can feed 200 people three meals a day, built a medical center, and developed plans for a church in the future.
Also with God's help, Megan helped the Restavak - an estimated 300,000 children 5 or 6 and older that were child slaves. Megan married and adopted children. I have left so much out of this review you have to read the book.
In this remarkable story, I laughed and cried so many times, my heart was bursting for all the children. I would put the book down to go to bed and pick it up again for another chapter; I did not want it to end. I helped look for lost children, my emotions went up and down and tied in knots. A wonderful journey and a well written book. A Christian book but not preaching to anyone. I recommend this book to everyone, a book you will remember for a long time.
(For some of you who want to know. It is not heavy on the "religious" dialogue. However it is all about a Christian lady and her influence.)
The problem with some reviews are they tend to make the book sound boring. This book is far, far from boring. It is alive and active!
God gave this young woman a dream about a tree for years and then took her there.
The local pastor in Haiti had been praying for years under that tree every week for help.
She built a school there in just one year.
God supernaturally allowed her to communicate in creole.
God protected her from demons and voodoo priests.
She exposed a corrupt orphanage that was pulling money for naïve Americans and mistreating the children.
She continues to confront the system of child slavery known as restavek.
This book is just fabulous and inspiring and will assure you that God still does miraculous things in 2018.
A true story about a woman with enough faith that has literally moved a mountain. She is changing lives for God's glory. Megan has extreme perseverance and a full heart that doesn't know the words "give up."
If you are blessed enough to read...trust me.
Megan Boudreaux - you are an amazing woman of God. I cried, and I cried, and I cried. Thank you for sharing your story with the world. Respire Haiti is an amazing thing of beauty, compassion, and the heart of Jesus.
I can't even put into words how much I want to come and work beside you on top of that mountain!
The book really delves into personal stories of her experience with restaveks, which are child slaves sold to families to clean and are severely neglected. This path shows her eventual foundation of a school named Respire Haiti, which is geared toward educating and putting worth into dignity-stripped children. This story touched my heart, and is a very emotionally-gripping read. It is well worth it, and will not disappoint. This lonesome yet wholesome personal experience is written eloquently and has emotional ups and downs as it is a roller coaster of a story.
