A New Day...

Thank you so much for your prayers! The team has completely and fully recovered...apparently, it was a 24-hour bug. And apparently, that's pretty common. We got a slightly later start this morning to allow everyone a little bit of extra rest. But we got on the road and took the hour or so drive to Port Salut to visit the orphanage there. This area is a little bit nicer, with well-paved roads. The reason for this is that it is a nicer area due to its proximity to the ocean, and it was also the hometown of Aristide. We had a wonderful time of trading songs in English and Creole with the kids there, and then pulled together a VBS story and skit of The Prodigal Son. They really enjoyed that...especially the team acting out the part of the story with the pigs. :)

After the visit to the orphanage, the team continued on the beach at Port Salut. The beauty of this area is difficult to put into words, and we aren't able to put pictures up just yet. But even those would probably not do it justice. There was time in the water, and then a lunch of freshly-caught, freshly-grilled fish and lobster beachside. Following that, the team relaxed and had some good time together and also good time in worship. This was a good reminder of the universal power of music, as that drew lots of attention.

Each night we have been spending some time debriefing the day together with worship, some reflection and sharing, and prayer. It is difficult to believe we are over halfway done...but we are already looking forward to sharing more with you face to face when we get home. Much love from Haiti!
