Miracle on Voodoo Mountain is the tale of how the author started Respire Haiti, a ministry providing education, healthcare, food and shelter to the most vulnerable children of Haiti. Set amidst the evils of voodoo, the horror of human trafficking and the despair of a people devastated by natural disaster, Boudreaux's story brilliantly depicts the Light triumphing over darkness through the life of one young woman and people she meets along the way.
It's almost too good to be true. The miracles that God orchestrates, the details He pulls together will remind you that the God we serve is way bigger than any plan we can put together. You won't want to put it down because her story will haunt you, amaze you, and inspire you to look for God moving among you.

From the Publisher:
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.
