Publisher's Summary

"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.

Serving a Limitless God

Refreshing, honest, and faith-filled, Miracle on Voodoo Mountain, is the story of what happens when we can let ourselves choose to be hear God's voice . . . in a world filled with chatter and well-meaning advice, the quietness of that still small voice, that comes after time in God's word, time spent NOT thinking about ourselves, that voice that whispers into our heart and spirit is our guide to being His hands and feet . . . and as with Megan, God often leads us out of our "safe zones" . . . but wherever He leads us, He is already there, preparing the way . . . He leads us into wisdom, and it is a journey . . . a process . . . which first begins with great compassion, wanting to gather up all the hurt and dying of this world, and then coming to the understanding that, no, that's impossible . . . and that's not what He's called you to anyway . . . He's called you to work, one day at a time, to LOVE, to give, to be JOYOUS . . . and He's also called others to be a part of His plan, to join in His work . . . I listened with so much joy at Megan's story . . . marveled as she and her friends faced down the enemy in prayer . . . and claimed the land . . . and God's children in the name of Jesus . . . Miracle on Voodoo Mountain blessed me . . . it will bless you, too . . .

- Debbie "Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper."

Amazing

Great story. Great narrator. The story will resonate with anyone who has been to Haiti - the story brings you right back to the island as you can picture places that you have been that are so similar to her description. The story is so encouraging to hear of the progress at Respire Haiti in such a short time. It is a wonderful example of God's sovereign hand protecting and healing His children.
