Saint Mary's U of M Day 2

Hello Everyone,

Today our team delivered water to three different Haitian communities within Cite Soleil. We left the guest house at 9:30 this morning, and arrived back around 3:00 this afternoon. At each of these locations, our team switched between playing with the Haitian children, filling buckets of water, and helping carrying the buckets to their homes. At our first stop, we got to visit the church/school that Healing Haiti sponsors. Then we took off for the second stop, where the kids were so excited to see us that they climbed up on our top-top before we could even get out. At the final stop, we got to take some of the older kids out to the pier on the ocean. Right before we left, we circled up to dance and sing with our Haitian team and kids.

To end the day, we gathered for a delicious dinner at the table that was cooked by the staff. Soon after dinner, we discussed our thoughts on the day, and what our agenda is for tomorrow.

All in all, we made it through the first day! No injuries. No one got lost! Niels cried, but we made it!

Love all the way from Haiti,

Cortney and Bailey
