Dr. James Ingvoldstad shares stories of adventure, trust, and kindness in Haiti that surprised him as he planned to serve the Haitian people and ended up being served.
One trip can change your life. For Dr. James Ingvoldstad, that one trip turned into many that not only changed his but the lives of others who joined him. ROAD TRIP: One doctor's call to Haiti, chronicles the adventures, surprises and touching moments of the author's eighteen years of travel to Haiti and La Gonave. From his fraternity days, through forty years of medical practice, this book is a tapestry of events woven and bonded by the heart and soul of the Haitian people; who became a part of, not just his story, but also many others. An often-overlooked country, Haiti is home to a people that show core values of trust, faith, respect, and caring every day. Those same values are shared in equal measure by his fellow travelers. Each came to serve and share their time and talents and instead had their lives transformed by an unexpected chance to be served. Through these stories, you may, in some measure, experience how those who are poor and seem the least of us, have hearts that can change the world.
