Summary

Kent Annan left behind his prosperous, comfortable upbringing to face the world beyond its gates in Haiti, where people wear his cast-off clothing and seek comfort from the heat in the long shadow of his homeland. Read Following Jesus Through the Eye of the Needle and you'll get a fresh sense of what it means to love God and love our neighbor when love makes you uncomfortable and even requires vulnerability; to see what happens when God stretches you beyond your borders into his kingdom.

Author Biography

Kent Annan is codirector of Haiti Partners, a nonprofit focused on education in Haiti. He's worked in Haiti since 2003-living there some of the time and now traveling there regularly from Florida, where he lives with his wife and two children.
