These are some of my recommended books to read about preparing to enter the mission field of helping the poor. To be honest, if you are moving to Haiti or anywhere for that matter, the best thing you can do is invest in your marriage and your family. Nothing can take the place of spending time reading the Bible, praying, and investing in your family.
To get a taste here is a post on a summary of 3 points in the book: http://ryanandmelissaalberts.com/3006/3-mind-blowing-learnings-about-haitians/
Ladies. Melissa read this book and really speaks highly of it. Even though this couple was in Africa, it rings true to Haiti.
Whether you are intrigued by the stories of foreign missionaries and how they adapt to a new culture or are heading towards the mission ?eld yourself, you will ?nd this book enlightening and inspiring. It is not your traditional missionary autobiography read. Be prepared. It’s honest.
The most important thing you can do is to dig deeper into prayer and hearing from God. As cheesy as this books title sounds, it is the most practical guide to pressing into and learning how to spend time with him.
