We have had a busy and full couple of days here in sun-filled Haiti. Here's a quick re-cap.
Yesterday we started our day with another delicious breakfast. Then we were off to Titanyen
to visit some of the Elders in Healing Haiti's Elder Program. We were blessed to serve four beautiful souls through washing their feet, worshiping, praying for them and bringing food and cool beverages. Next, we made a stop at Rosie's Boutique where they sell local handmade items and yummy cold ice cream treats. Shopping here helps provide employment/business opportunities for the Haitians in the area.
From there, we headed to Grace Village, where we were blessed with a tour of the facility. This tour included four family style homes for orphans, a school grades K-13, a church, missionary homes, a natural sustainable garden and a clinic. The day ended with a tour and scrumptious pizza at Fleri which is a bakery and restaurant that is also part of Grace Village and a job creation program.
Today started very early, 5:15am to be exact. We jumped out of bed excited to experience Church On The Rock. We were not disappointed. What a spirit filled morning! We got to walk home after the service. God graced us with another beautiful day. Praise Him! After breakfast, we hopped in the TapTap and went to Haiti Teen Challenge. We were inspired and in awe of the people and what God is doing there. The next destination on the schedule for the day was Papillon which is an organization that was developed by a woman whose purpose was to prevent children in Haiti from becoming orphans due to parents not having employment. Her vision blossomed into a very successful business that now employs over 130 Haitian people. Please look at their website https://papillonmarketplace.com. Their products are all made from locally sourced or recycled materials. There are many beautiful items to choose from. We all left with treasures. Our last place of service of the day included stopping at the LA PHARE Orphanage, which is run by a Pastor and his wife. We had so much fun getting to know and playing with all of the kids. We wrapped up the day with a refreshing dip in the nearby pool, a wonderful dinner and a meaningful team gathering. We continue to be grateful for everything the Lord is allowing us to experience.
