Description

A Courageous Yes

When Yvrose fled her native Haiti for the United States, she couldn't imagine she'd return. After suffering multiple miscarriages, she struggled to build a new life. In a desperate moment, she finally met Jesus-uttering her first "yes" to God. That one yes became many when she couldn't forget the faces of the children she saw in a recurring dream. Finally, a trip to Haiti brought her dream to life when she became Mama to the many children left with no home after a catastrophic earthquake devastated the nation. Becoming Mama tells the incredible story of one woman who had the courage to lay everything aside in answer to God's call.

You will be encouraged by God's overwhelming faithfulness to Yvrose's every yes to God, and learn you don't have to sell everything or travel to far-off places to make a difference. All you need is an open heart ready to say yes to His call.
