On January 10, 2010, a huge earthquake hit Haiti, devastating a portion of one of the world’s poorest nations. An American medical doctor there that day, on one of many trips he has made to Haiti, found himself one of the first medical professionals available to respond, and he moved to setting up a MASH-style medical clinic outside under tents and treating the injured until trauma medical teams could arrive.
It was just one of the adventures Dr. Jim Ingvoldstad has had in his years of service to Haiti. When Dr. Jim began serving on short medical missions in Haiti he learned not only that he has gained more than he gave, but that risking change and stepping out and being vulnerable allows for growth and joy.
When the opportunity to serve came, viewed it as a way of giving back to others and fulfilling the call God had on his life. What he saw only later was that the adventure had the joy and risk of a road trip to the unknown. After almost 20 years and more than 30 trips to the same community in Haiti, he saw the radical change this had made in his own life as, among other things, he learned from the Haitian people the joy of living in the present, and of giving without expectation of anything in return.
