If I had to put a title on today, I could use words like profound, love, grateful, exhausting, fulfilling, and many, many others but I'd say the word that best describes today is Honor! The day started well with breakfast that was well prepared by our Haitian staff and a few volunteers. We all prayed over our day and over our meal, had a filling and delicious breakfast. We gathered our water for the day and loaded tightly in the Tap-Tap. Our transportation was fuller today as we had a couple of welcomed guests join us on our adventure. We traveled for about 40 minutes and ended up in a village named Titanyen which means "less than nothing" in Haitian Creole. There were hilly gravel paths between residences and people hustling and bustling, children walking and playing, and families just living their lives as normal. They all notice the truck full of strangers driving through their city.
We brought each of these amazing individuals meals, water, juice, and toiletries.
We all felt an amazing closeness to each of them and their community. We were able to paint the fingernails of one amazing lady that even sang us a song of prayer and worship.
We said our goodbyes and loaded into the tap-tap. We headed to another place to have a snack and shop. Every place we stop and spend money, helps the local economy. We are all very happy to help in any way we can.
After holding and loving on a few of the kids and touring the school, we headed down the hill to Fleri Resto (Haitian for Flourish Restaurant).
