Aspen Grove Network Post 1

          This is my first trip to Haiti, and I've only experienced one full day here, but I can tell you without a doubt I will be back. We did a water truck day yesterday, and let me tell you, it was eye opening. The water truck was a huge truck full of water with a hose and people would line up with buckets for us to fill up. We did three different stops with the water trucks to three different areas of City Solei. The first stop we went to, we hadn't been there for more  then five minutes and this mother handed me her baby, that must have of been a year or younger, she walked me over to the shade and told me to stay there. The mother trusted me with her child, she had no idea who I was, she just knew I was there to help, which was awesome. We then went to eat lunch and tour and healing Haiti church, then we did another water stop. On the second water stop I decided to help haul water buckets to the homes of these people. Theses people were so thankful for our help. At one point I was helping this little old lady and she was so so great full. Once we got to her home she would say merci, which means thank you and then she'd give me a great big hug and kiss on the cheek. We then went to a healing Haiti farm which is providing jobs for Haitians, the manager of the farm gave us a tour, most of there food goes to the healing Haiti restaurant and then they will sell the leftover food they have. Healing Haitis goal is job creation because eighty percent of Haiti is unemployed. We then went to a third water stop, at this one I just played with kids. It was then time to head back where we spent the night eating dinner and having a service.
