Playday at Titanyen

We were blessed to travel 45 minutes north to Grace Village in Titanyen.  Since it is Saturday with  the children not in school, we were available to play with them.  One of the older students showed us some of the robotic activities in the tech innovation classroom.  Basketball, jump rope and parachute were active games on the playground.  A highlight during our singing time was to include some of the house mothers. They were very interested to see the words printed in English and practice singing along.  The joy on their faces expressed God's Spirit in their hearts as they made an effort to sing in English.  What beautiful voices they had!  The gift of music is universal, breaking down language barriers. 

Children also enjoyed making Valentine hearts with the message "Jezi renmen ou" decorated with a picture of Jesus and a personal Polaroid photo.  Every color of finger nail polish was painted on children's nails.  A real treat was to have a child paint our nails. 

We appreciated having Healing Haiti staff join us in leading worship, share information about Fleri Farm and the background of Haiti and safely transport us in the tap tap!  We continue to marvel at God's love and provision for the beautiful Haitian people.
