Haiti Team 2, Weds. Oct.17, 2018

Charlie had coffee ready at 6:30 am. We did sleep in a little because there was a protest scheduled in our area. The details/purpose of the protest are still unclear but we were unaffected by it.
    Mike offered a nice devotional for our team this morning. That was after a breakfast of oatmeal, pancakes, bananas, mango, avocados.
    Jean, (vision expansion coordinator),  shared his story and his history with Healing Haiti.
    We spent the morning and early afternoon reflecting on our purpose here and enjoyed sharing time together. Some games included bean bag and Farkle (sp). 
   From about 1:30 until 4:00 both teams and the team from Reiser Relief ( White Bear Lake, St Mary’s Church) went to the local pool/hotel just a couple blocks away. We used the beach ball to volley around the edge of the pool and reached a remarkable sequence of 52 volleys before missing a hit.
    The were remnants of 3 burned tires on the road along our walk. There was no evidence of a protest. 15+ local young men were casually sitting along  the roadside. They smiled and returned our greetings. 

    Dinner of Haitian lasagna and fresh veggie salad was tasty.we were essentially unaffected by it. So our teams were advised to not go out of the compound
