For ten years, Ted Boers, a well-intentioned, successful American entrepreneur, devoted himself to improving the conditions of the poor in Haiti. His journey would take him into many dark places including a crisis of faith that launched him on a mission to discover what he did not know and wished he had known before he began. This book is the fruit of that journey. It contains hard lessons forged on the anvil of what might look like failure. However, this perceived failure may in fact be the doorway to hope. In it are keys to making a lasting impact on the lives of the poor in Haiti and around the world.
