Christian Light Foundation

Here’s an excerpt from a newsletter written by Kathy Brooks, a colleague of our ministry partner, Emory Wilson, founder of the Christian Light Foundation in Gonaives, Haiti, where Cross is helping build homes:

The work of Emory and the folks of Christian Light Foundation is more about building houses or reducing poverty. It’s about relationships. Loving one another.

This past weekend we had a gathering of people in the mountains of Haiti…The gathering helped us to step back and look at this thing that God is doing in our midst. It has come into focus
and it is all about
RELATIONSHIPS.

A few months ago Emory came to a strong conclusion….we must love one another well…or we need to go home.

We can only give away what we ourselves possess. If we have not got authentic LOVE, we will not produce anything of value here. We’ll just be a nuisance of sound and stuff…noisy gongs, clanging symbols. God help us!

We now are back in Gonaives. Full steam ahead…. And we pass every activity through the lens of reconciling relationships. This is more about the woman hanging out the laundry, than the laundry getting dry. It has to be.

Oh God, that we would love well today! Less “gong” and more kindness.


Amen, Kathy!
