Hope International

My wife Michelle is in the midst of taking a course dealing with the micro-financing aspect of development work in developing countries. Michelle was born in the Amazon jungle of Peru, South America, and she ended up going back after college to work with Food For The Hungry in the same jungle village where she grew up.  She moved back to the states to marry me, but her heart still longs to be back on the field doing what she does best.  Currently, we're living in North Carolina, and actively wondering, waiting, and working toward a way that we can mesh music and art with cross-cultural development work.  The puzzle pieces are slowly getting put together. Recently my friend Nic Mclean took a trip to Haiti with Hope International and filmed the following short documentary about Hopes work there. Michelle and I are encouraged by it, and I hope you are too.
