Day 6 - HDA!
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit". Romans 15:3
Kevyen Aucoin said, "Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices- today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it."
Today we choose life and joy!
Joy from the moment we awoke to find new friends have arrived and the amazing staff at Healing Haiti had once again wowed us with their culinary creations! Each morning has been full of great food and fresh squeezed juices.
After breaking our fast and enjoying inspiring conversation, we headed again to the Tap Tap. This time we were loaded down with goodies because we were heading to the Haiti Deaf Academy (HDA). We were bringing with us HDA's directors. The kids had not seen them in a while. The drive was beautiful! We saw the blue Caribbean sea. We arrived at HDA, all of us eager to meet the amazing children and the dedicated staff.
The kids were incredible--so personable and friendly. We met each one personally. We were blessed to have time to truly enjoy them. We chatted and played games and did not want to leave.
After our wonderful visit at HDA, we enjoyed a little shopping at Rosie's Boutique then pizza at Fleri. We took a tour of Fleri and saw the amazing work they do there. It was so inspiring! After a dinner of pizza and fellowship we headed back to Healing Haiti. Exhausted and dusty we left the Tap Tap, but our hearts were bursting with joy for every moment.
