Beach Day!

Today we had a wonderful day taking forty-three kids from Pastor Vincent’s orphanage and Good Shepherd Orphanage to the beach! Before I get to today, I need to start with last night. The students heard that there is a Domino’s Pizza in Haiti. And they wanted to go. So we went. We used the opportunity…

Health for Haiti Saturday

This morning we all walked to our first destination. After over eight hours on the bus yesterday, it was nice to walk a little! We visited Coram Deo orphanage which is located only a short distance from our guesthouse. Coram Deo is home for fifteen boys. It is also a school for 120 children and…

Health for Grande Saline

We picked up the seventy-five Family LifeStraw units that we were able to purchase with the funds we raised. ¬†Each unit will…

City Soleil

Bonswa from Haiti! We have just arrived back at our guest house hot, tired and pretty overwhelmed with emotion after our day in City Soleil. City Soleil is the largest slum in the Western Hemisphere, with 800,000 people in an area of about eight square miles. It is hard to put into words what we…

Bonswa!

It was an incredible day. We went to Mother Theresa’s Hospital to feed and hold the sick babies (no pictures allowed). We also went to bring some beds and toys to a family that Gina “adopted”. We had to strap the mattresses to the top of our bus. Marie has seven children and has started…
