Air Date December 4, 2013
Today is World View Wednesday. He was once an atheist but became a well known Christian author. C.S. Lewis’ life and legacy continues to inspire many. Now, there’s a new radio theater production out on DVD. Then, missionary Malcolm Henderson, shares how God is transforming lives in the country of Haiti.
Malcolm Henderson, founded CHARIS following a short term mission trip to Haiti in 2011. He was so very moved by what he witnessed there, and at the end of the mission trip he felt God telling him that this was His calling on his life---to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to this poor, suffering nation. After much study of Haiti, his wife (Joy) and him decided not to go to Haiti as denominational missionaries, but rather start their own Christian non-profit company--thus CHARIS was born. The decision not to go with a denomination was based on the fact that Haiti is a nation of spiritual confusion. There are Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Lutherans, Baptists, etc., thus he felt the Holy Spirit moving him through prayer, to go to Haiti under no specific denominational banner, but instead go as followers of Jesus Christ. They then quit jobs, put aside all American career aspirations (Joy was working in a mutual fund company and he was starting his search for work as a physician), sold their home, gave away their cars and all of their possessions, boarded a plane with our 4 children and left for Haiti.
