So nice to tell you a little bit about my experience this time in Haiti. We have been very blessed with warm sunny weather, sometimes very hot when there is no wind, frequent drinks of water and sitting in the shade refresh’s us. The property where we work each day is so beautiful, as you have seen in the pictures. As I was wheeling each wheelbarrow up the hill to where we were dumping the dirt from the roadway, I looked up to see the palm trees, and the ocean with various colours of blues, aqua and whitecaps. It made my task so much more enjoyable each time as I approached the hill to the beach. God sure does paint beautiful scenes and then he puts us there to admire them. Looking around I can also see mangoes hanging from several trees, coconut trees (sometimes loud cracks as coconuts fall onto the ground), and red, pink and white flowers hanging on trees or shrubs. There are Goats calling for their kids and cows wandering freely looking for some greener grass. As I walked back to the work-site, I saw Ron pushing a full wheelbarrow with one of the local boys having a free ride, next thing I see there are three boys pushing Ron in the wheelbarrow back to the roadway.
I am enjoying getting to know each person on this trip and the different personalities and how each person expresses their love of Jesus. It is great to share this beautiful country with each other and to discuss our cares and concerns for the Haitians.
How are the prayer chains children?
Please pray for good health and for God to open our hearts to see how we can be effective here and how we can love these people as Jesus loves us.
God bless, Janet
Hello everybody Alex reporting in from the beautiful and exotic country of Haiti. Today the crew went to the worksite today, it was yet another scorching hot day. Nonetheless we tried our best to find work alongside the Haitian workers who manage to always take it all. While doing so we learned a valuable lesson, to acknowledge language barriers and not to assume anything by it, as the Haitian workers words of support and encouragement were misconstrued and were thought by the girls to be not welcomed on the worksite; This issue was quickly resolved, and we were working together as a well oiled multicultural team. With that being said today wasn’t all that exciting but nevertheless every moment here helping the people to develop and grow relationships with the people of Haiti is worth it. With love, Alex.
