Publisher's Description

"It took months of God waking me up in the middle of the night before I realized I was the one He was calling to leave my comfortable American life and move to Haiti."

Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the inspirational memoir of an accomplished and driven 24-year old who quit her job, sold everything, and moved to Haiti, by herself—all without a clear plan of action. Megan Boudreaux had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips but each trip multiplied the sense that someone needed to address the devastation—especially with the children, many of whom were kept as household slaves on the poverty-stricken and earthquake-devastated Caribbean island.

God guided her every step as she moved blindly to a foreign land without knowing the language, the people, or the future. From becoming the adoptive mother of former child slaves, to receiving the divine gift of the Haitian Creole language, to starting, building, and running a school for more than 500 children, "the amazingness of what God did after I made the choice to be obedient is incredible," said Megan.

Three years later, six acres on Bellevue Mountain in Gressier is the home of the nonprofit Respire Haiti at the former site of voodoo worship, and in the area that many still come to make animal sacrifices, Megan and her staff of nearly 200 are transforming this community as they educate, feed, and address the needs.

Author Bio

Megan Boudreaux, at the age of 24,founded Respire Haiti, a non-profit to fight for the freedom of Haiti's estimated 300,000 child slaves. Megan followed God's call to begin a feeding program and transform a barren hillside into a refuge and a school for 500 children. A medical clinic is nearing completion with future plans for a church, community center, and library. Megan has adopted four Haitian children and in 2013 she married her best friend, Josh Anderson.

    Of all the nonfiction books I've read, this one might be the one that has touched me the most deeply. Over unbelievable and insurmountable odds, one young woman waged a war against darkness for a handful of Haitian children and won.

    Megan Boudreaux paid a brief visit to Haiti in 2010, just after the earthquake that devastated that country. While there, she hiked up to a beautiful old tamarind tree sitting by itself on top of Bellevue Mountain.

    She went home, and the dreams started. She would dream about that tree night after night and wake up with her heart pounding in excitement. She went in to talk to her boss about these crazy dreams and how much she'd been impressed by the children and people.

    In the middle of her ramblings, her boss spoke up. "If you think God is calling you to Haiti, you absolutely need to go. If it doesn't work out there will always be a place for you here."

    So she went. No plan in mind, no one with her, no funding, no sponsors, just a dream and a destination, Gressier, Haiti. So many amazing and miraculous things unfold from that little step of obedience. you've got to read the book to believe it.

    Five years after the life-changing earthquake in Haiti, we are treated to the story of one young woman's call to move to Haiti and help. Megan had visited Haiti on a few humanitarian trips, but the plight of the children was keeping her awake at night. She packed and moved, with no real knowledge of what she was going to do. One thing she remembered from previous visits, was the beautiful tree on Bellevue Mountain and the rest it offered from the hot sun; when she made her way there again, she met a child. And the journey truly began.

    Megan tells a story that is beautifully simple in the telling but eye-opening in its truth. We hear about the reality of voodoo, restaveks (child slavery) and how unknowing but generous Americans can actually exacerbate the problems for Haitian children.

    I enjoyed reading of Megan's faith, God's ample provision, and the changes being made in Haiti. And even if I never visit there myself, I have a better understanding of what to pray about!
