Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is an amazing true story of hope, faith, and the children of Haiti. One young woman is drawn to Gressier Haiti by prayers sent to God pulling her to Haiti and the work that she will be doing there. The longer she spends in Haiti and the more she see of the land and its people, the deeper God draws her in to being part of the solution for a better tomorrow in the children of Haiti.
It was hard for me to stop reading through the pages each evening, I felt propelled and inspired to continue on in the story. Even after I finished reading Miracle on Voodoo Mountain, I wanted to hear more of the story and more about the lives of the people there. While reading the story it made me so inspired to find out how I could help, what it was that I could do for these children. My heart longed to hold and bring comfort to the children in the story.
Throughout Miracle on Voodoo Mountain are references pointing to God and actual experiences of the Holy Spirit moving within and among the people. Verses of scripture are also included in the pages of the book. This is an amazing story that should be read by all people in all countries around the world. A story of submitting to God’s direction with all your heart, mind, and soul.
I highly recommend Miracle on Voodoo Mountain to all readers!
