Brother has sent tons of soymeal
By Erin Gardner
ST. HENRY - Brother Nick Renner has been sending soymeal to villages in Haiti for 20 years after receiving a "sign" from a hungry man he ignored and later regretted.
Renner recounted the experience during his first visit to Haiti in 1975.
During that visit, Renner said he prayed for God to send him a sign if he wanted Renner to do anything while there. When he was in Haiti's capital of Port-au-Prince, he visited the Iron Market, a mall. After buying trinkets, Renner got on a bus. [More]
