Good-bye Haiti! We will miss you – and it’s people, especially the children! God please keep them safe. So many emotions and memories for every member on this trip!

We arrived on time, safe and sound in Toronto this evening.

Sorry about yesterday’s pics – the link must not have copied correctly. Should be able to see them now :)(...)

Well, today is our last day here in Haiti, and what an amazing journey it has been with a team that has worked so well together! We’ve all worked hard and have trusted in God to guide us and lead us in all that we have done. Each and every person on this team brings their own special talents, passion and love for the people of Haiti, which showed every day that we were here. The nights after supper when the cards and spoons came out and laughter filled the dining (...)

“Come close to God and he will come close to you”

This will be our last day of sponsorship, construction and medical clinics – and it will be a full one! When we first arrived here we came with a set of plans for what we wanted to accomplish during the 12 days. Some we have surpassed and others were not quite met, but the path we took was one close to God. He blessed us with our needs, new friendships and everlasting memories. We have been God’s hands and feet for the past 2 (...)

After receiving such a cooling rain last night, everyone rested well. We have a busy 2 days ahead as there are Medical clinics being held in Port au Prince at Christa College and Cazeau, and now that our precious container has arrived, Sponsorship is excited to hand out a few hundred sponsor boxes to eagerly awaiting children from various schools.

In Glenn’s devotion this morning he read: ‘God gives us what we need. Trust in his care and walk with him (...)

The container is here! The container is here! It arrived about 4 this afternoon, just as the clouds started to form and a cool breeze kicked up. Perfect, at the time, for the heavy work involved in emptying it out. Boxes and boxes, bags and bags headed to sponsorship, pharmacy and the boutique and many containers of Gleaners soup mix were stored. Just before the container was empty the skies opened up and it poured out! There was even lightning in the sky. It (...)

This morning we all gathered in the church to attend the Sunday worship service with our Haitian friends. Pastor Charles spoke in creole and again in English for our benefit. Some of the Haitian ladies shared their song books with us and showed us the verses to sing. The girls in the choir had amazing voices. Glenn also spoke with Pastor Charles translating in Creole. We are always grateful to be here in Haiti doing the work of God. We are blessed to be a part of (...)

Today was a day of rest for us after the week of construction and medical clinics. We left early this morning in an air conditioned bus no less, on an adventure to Port au Prince and the Baptist Mission in the hills above. Of course we had our usual back seat crew that kept us entertained along the way with singing and laughter! We passed through Cabaret where once again market was taking place so the roads were very dusty and busy. We drove into Port au (...)

In the lives we lead today it is very easy to get caught up in just our own life and not consider others. Take the opportunity to serve whenever you can. When we are holding a clinic here in Haiti, in whatever small community we may be in, there are always many people with sicknesses waiting in line hoping they will get to see someone. We won’t turn them away – we will serve them all as God has asked us to do.

Construction today continued with (...)

Well, we were off to Croix-des Bouquets today to one of the schools there to hold a medical clinic for the people and children. We left Daisy and Hochi in charge of the camp and all the guys in construction. They gave us a great farewell before our departure with promises of dry laundry and supper waiting upon our return. Croix-des Bouquets was about a one and a half hour drive from Cabaret along bumpy roads that were filled with many Haitians as it was (...)

Rain rain! We have never had rain 2 days in a row before! It makes things a bit messy outside, especially for the construction crew, but it also keeps the very hot heat at bay! There was no chance that our laundry was going to dry on the clotheslines outside so after a bit of trial and error with the ceiling fans in the eating area, we were able to rig up a system to get them dry. After a breakfast of scrambled eggs, creamed wheat and fruit we were all set to (...)
