In Haiti, there’s an orphanage being run by a man named Prospere. It’s an enormous task, taking care of 30 some kids. Why does he do it? Where does he find the motivation to keep on with such a difficult task? You see, Prospere was once an orphan too. He was one of the first orphans helped through this same orphanage. I suppose he could say, “See, I had a rough past. I can’t be expected to do much.” Instead, he’s the most logical person to do the work. He’s been there, he knows it, and he cares.
