We have a team of five here for 1 week. They have been planning this trip for many months now. They get it. They have come to HELP us. They want to do anything they can to help. They do not complain about it being hot and dirty. They do not complain about anything. They get it! They want to help us out how every they can! The last two sentences can make or break a team. Marleana is here with us for a month as well. She is pictured in the middle right in front of the coconut tree. She is from Canada and here to help and a get a feel for Haiti and missions. She gets it too! Yeah! I am excited! They get it!
They brought in a lot of supplies for the RC and clinic Yeah!
Several members from the church made new diapers and blankets for the kids! Yeah!
One of the team members just graduated from nursing school. She has been a big help in the clinic! Yeah!
We also have another gal here from Texas, Caroline, she is in the picture above with the white headband. She gets it as well! Such a big help and encouragement in just the first day of being here. We are encouraged and blessed to be able to experience a good week with a great bunch of people. God is good! The guys have been working on some chalkboards at a local school here. I will write more about that later.
I wanted to let you all know how much we miss Keverly! It seems so odd that she is not here. It seems like she should be here to experience this team and the girls that are here. But we are grateful that she is being able to spend some time with her family before she goes to college. We miss her calm, loving, understanding spirit that she has. We miss the jokes and laughing. The boys miss her. They wonder what she is doing and how she is. She has forever changed their lives and for that we are so very thankful. I still cannot believe that God worked everything out so well for the 6 months that she was here. HE IS SO GOOD!
