Publisher's Description

Fourteen-year-old Jaron helps his mother get to the NW Haiti Christian Mission where she gives birth to her eighth child. While awaiting the birth of the baby, Jaron meets American short-term missionaries and begins to question his faith in the Voodoo religion of his country. He becomes acquainted with the missionary staff, meets teenagers from America whose strong Christian beliefs influence him, and observes the activities of the mission as it serves his fellow Haitians of all ages. He struggles with his familyas poverty, the violent weather of the Caribbean, his fatheras escape to Miami, the placement of two brothers in the mission orphanage, his little brotheras autistic behavior, and his own desire to better himself through education. Through the influence of the people he meets, he learns more about Christianity and eventually turns to God in prayer.
