"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13)
Walking by faith and not by sight, Bobby and Sherry Burnette serve as full-time missionaries in Haiti, ministering to the poorest of the poor, spreading the Word of God, and showing Christ's love by example. They feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and heal the sick.
It has always been a joy, but it hasn't always been easy. They wake up early each day-usually 4:00 a.m.-to spend time together in prayer and reading God's Word. Many of the thoughts in this book, Faith, Hope, and Love Devotional: A 90-Day Walk with God, came out of what God taught them during this precious time. Others came later in the day, when God brought back to their hearts and minds the insights He had revealed in the early morning hours.
Faith, hope, and love are the three spiritual elements we need in our lives every day. While the lessons Bobby and Sherry present were learned on the mission field, they are true for everyone, everywhere. This is the nature of God's truth. It works in Haiti, and it will work for you, wherever you are in the world.
In this devotional, the Burnettes share their struggles and their triumphs, all the while rejoicing that the Lord is always faithful to His promise to help them as they help others in this land of mountains and beauty, poverty and voodoo. Join them in ninety days of prayer and Scripture readings as they share touching and humorous stories from their lives and the gospel.

From their beginnings as visiting missionaries to Haiti, Bobby and Sherry have worked to spread the Word of God and show the love of Jesus by example through feeding programs, mobile medical clinics, and the building of Christian schools and churches. They moved to Haiti in 1991 and have never looked back, living year-round at the Love A Child Orphanage in Fond Parisien, Haiti.
Love A Childs outreach programs include: a 21,500-square-foot orphanage, now home to seventy-eight children; primary schools that educate and feed more than seven thousand children each day; mobile medical clinics; a regional medical clinic; and a feeding distribution program that serves more than 20 million meals every year. After the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Love A Child built several hundred houses for earthquake victims and developed eight sustainability projects, including Gwo Maché Mirak, a large marketplace providing jobs for the poor; Poul Mirak, a project to train Haitians how to raise and sell chickens; a tilapia fish farm; and an agricultural training center that teaches the farming of crops and trees. Bobby and Sherry believe that feeding the poor is essential, but that the ultimate goal is for Haitians to become self-sustaining.
Under the Burnettes leadership, Love A Child has grown to become one of the largest Christian nonprofits in Haiti. Thanks to LACs excellence in financial accountability, the organization consistently receives the highest industry ratings available through the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), Charity Navigator, and the Independent Charities of America. In 2015, they documented the story of their ministry in their first book, Love Is Something You Do, with Whitaker House.
Bobby and Sherry want people to know what faith and love can do to change a nation. It is their deepest desire that their lives inspire others to reach out in response to the cry of the poor in some way, large or smallrescuing one child at a time.
