In October, Krause, pastor of Rock Solid Assembly church, traveled to Port-au-Prince with representatives from Convoy of Hope, which offers children's feeding initiatives worldwide.
Following the 2010 earthquake, Rock Solid Assembly and other Assembly of God churches, donated dollars to relief efforts in Haiti.
Convoy of Hope is a faith-based nonprofit organization headquartered in Springfield, Mo., which feeds 156,000 children in Haiti and other countries each day.
"That might be their only meal of the day," Krause said.
Krause visited several orphanages and schools in Port-au-Prince during his trip last month.
"The kids loved being picked up and played with," he said.
One of the orphanages he visited housed 48 children, but had only nine beds, he said.
"The rest of the kids sleep on cement floors," Krause explained.
He said most of the schools he visited were open, tin buildings with a roof and a back wall with white rock floors because after the earthquake the Haitians no longer trust concrete.
"The kids were just as happy as those at Clark School (in Le Mars)," Krause said.
Along with visiting orphanages and schools, he toured a Convoy of Hope warehouse where boxes of food were stored, Krause said.
During his time in Port-au-Prince, he also saw the devastating effects of the earthquake, nearly three years later.
"Hundreds of people live in tent cities," Krause said. "Little rebuilding has been done."
Haiti has no National Guard or Army to help with disasters like the earthquake, he said.
"There's still piles of rubble everywhere," Krause said. "They still find people, their bones."
Some buildings are partially destroyed, others are totally destroyed and some remain untouched, he said.
Krause said one of the leaders of Convoy of Hope told him that poverty exists everywhere, but Haitian people live in extreme poverty.
"Haiti is the poorest country in the western Hemisphere," Krause said.
Many died in the 2010 earthquake and were buried in mass graves like one he saw where 200,000 to 300,000 people were laid to rest, marked by broken wooden crosses.
Despite the poverty surrounding them, the Haitian people are "happy and friendly," Krause said.
"They care about their appearance," he added. "They are very neat and as clean as possible."
In addition to donating dollars to Convoy of Hope after the 2010 earthquake, Rock Solid Assembly also partnered with the organization this past weekend.
The Rock Solid Assembly congregation was challenged Sunday to give to the "One Day to Feed the World" campaign, Krause said.
He asked people to determine what they made in one day, and then make that amount their offering, Krause said.
"Convoy of Hope can take our $1 and turn it into $7 worth of food," he said. "It really helps."
Since returning from Haiti, Krause said he wants to do more personally, and as a pastor, to raise awareness about those in need.
"It's not about us," he said. "It's about others."
