Publisher's Description

On January 12, 2010, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck the country of Haiti.
The world reacted in shock to the news reports of the devastation. Immediately responding to the catastrophe were Love A Child ministry founders Bobby and Sherry Burnette, who had somehow escaped death. In the days following, they came to believe they had been spared in order to minister to the desperate needs all around them.
When the earthquake hit, Bobby and Sherry had already served in Haiti for many years. Love Is Something You Do is the extraordinary narrative of the Burnettes’ lifelong journey of faith and compassion. If you love a great story, find a place to settle in and read one fascinating account after another. Travel the path that led them to Haiti—a land of mountains, colorful cultures, and insightful proverbs, but also of extreme poverty, oppressive voodoo, and despair. Experience their early years in street ministry, their life-threatening adventures and accidents, their incidents of miraculous healings and financial provision, and their standoffs with witch doctors and evil spirits. Above all, be renewed by their message of hope and peace, through which they continue to transform people’s lives spiritually, physically, educationally, and vocationally—giving Haitians a life of dignity and purpose they had never dreamed possible.
 

Author Bio

Bobby and Sherry Burnette are the founders and directors of Love A Child, Inc. They began their ministry by preaching on street corners, under gospel tents, and in auditoriums and churches. In 1971, they made their first short-term trip to Haiti. Although they continued to minister in many countries, their hearts were drawn to that nation, and they made 400 mission trips there. They moved to Haiti in 1991 and have never looked back. The Burnettes help those living in poverty through a variety of innovative outreaches to children and adults.
 

Editorial Reviews

When I first traveled to Love a Child’s headquarters, met Bobby and Sherry Burnette, and saw their outreaches, I immediately saw that they shared our vision of demonstrating the love of God and alleviating human suffering through practical humanitarian aid as they ministered to the poorest of the poor in Haiti. After seven years, we continue to invest in their Jesus Healing Center medical clinic and their widespread food distribution programs. Daily, they allow God’s love to shine through them in compassionate acts so that many people may come to know our Savior while receiving nutritious meals, having quality health care, gaining an education, being trained for a vocation, and experiencing hope for the first time in their lives. In Love Is Something You Do, you will travel with Bobby and Sherry on the "adventure with the Lord" that led them to the tiny country of Haiti—where the need was the greatest and where the people stole their hearts.
—David L. Meyer, CEO, Hand of Hope, Joyce Meyer Ministries

Bobby and Sherry Burnette embody "Love is something you do." It’s not just a phrase—it’s who they are. Feed My Starving Children has had the privilege of partnering with Love A Child since 1997. I have seen Bobby and Sherry’s love in action—feeding tens of thousands of children in Haiti each day. We are honored to work with those whose love for Jesus and the people of Haiti is tenacious.
—Mark Crea, President and CEO, Feed My Starving Children

Bobby and Sherry Burnette, founders and directors of Love A Child, Inc., have been a part of the Christian Television Network for more than thirty years. It has been a humbling experience for me to personally visit their mission field. I’ve watched them bring the light of Jesus, a future, and a hope to citizens of Haiti who have known only poverty and despair. If it is indeed true that "love is something you do," you’ll find no finer illustration of this truth than Bobby and Sherry Burnette.
—Robert D’Andrea, Founder and president, Christian Television Network (CTN)

In the many years that we have known the founders and directors of Love A Child, Bobby and Sherry Burnette, they have navigated extreme hardships and have endured political unrest, theft, gunfire, government turnover, embargoes, epidemics, and a devastating earthquake. Still, they both continue to befriend the unlovely, the unwanted, the sick, the dying, the hurting, the abandoned, and the needy while building schools and churches; organizing feeding programs, urgent-care centers, and mobile clinics; founding an orphanage; digging wells; constructing a marketplace; establishing agricultural/sustainability programs; building a fire station; installing playgrounds; maintaining a radio station; and sharing whatever they have with so many other ministries in Haiti. They continue to rescue and strengthen the Haitian people—one child, one family, one village at a time. For those who pray, "Lord, make me a fisher of men for You," Bobby and Sherry have demonstrated how to do that: If you show people the love of God by loving them, they will begin to perceive Him. Evie was introduced to missions with Love A Child on a rickety boat ride to a leprosy colony, and we can say that the course of our lives has changed forever by seeing firsthand Bobby and Sherry’s "love evangelism."
—Evie and Mark Ostrander, Senior pastors, Mission Church, Palm Bay, Florida

I have known Bobby and Sherry Burnette since they were teenagers and dating. Sherry began coming to our church first. She then met Bobby at a gospel tent revival and invited him to the Valentine’s Day Banquet at our church. They fell in love…and two years later, I officiated at their wedding. That’s how it all got started!

After their many years of evangelistic work in the United States, the Lord stirred Bobby and Sherry’s hearts to move to the country of Haiti. They obeyed that call, where God has used them to develop one of the greatest missionary endeavors in that country, called "Love A Child." Through the years, I have seen their integrity and faithfulness to their calling, and we support them 100 percent. They have given their lives to this work of God, which is unique in that they live right there in the orphanage with the children, who look to them as their mother and father. God has worked miracles through Bobby and has brought him back from death’s door many times. He is truly a man of great vision and great faith! And without any medical training, God has gifted Sherry to miraculously know how to treat the sick and dying.

Bobby and Sherry still consider me their "spiritual father," and I have found it a privilege and an honor to serve on the executive board of Love A Child for many years—a ministry that touches millions of people and is known all over the world.
—Pastor Joseph Ronsisvalle, Rockledge Christian Center, Rockledge, Florida
