Haiti- Day 5
While today we weren’t able to go off campus into any of the villages we still had an incredibly productive day. Our team was able to tackle a few projects on site that have built up over time. We got to organize one of the storage units mainly used for paint supplies. It only took a small part of our morning, but in the afternoon, we were able to work on a project that none of us expected it to be as impactful as it was.
The staff have a small “quite place” a small hike down the mountain. It’s used for them to relax, pray, and listen to God without the chaos of the compound. The path to the area was beat up, overgrown and hardly noticeable. When we were asked to clean it up we decided cutting down some grass wasn't enough. The people running Mission of Hope give up their lives in America to act on God’s call. We decided to build something as spectacular as possible without spending any money and using the resources around campus.
What started out as a dusty, rocky path is now a clean, paved walkway into a tranquil quite environment overlooking one of Haiti’s beautiful mountain sides. Complete with stone stairs, and concrete bench dug into the mountain side facing a bamboo cross.
The staff here were thankful and the team was all hands-on deck with this project, by the end other teams heard what we were doing and all wanted to help.
Our days has been cut short due to the holiday, but we are all tired out and resting. Continue to pray for us as we finish up our week here in Haiti. Tomorrow we will be putting on Kids Club that will be offered to all the kids in the village. We will be able to sing, perform skits, hand out snacks, and be able to teach he gospel to hundreds of kids.
Tomorrow will be out last planned outreach day, but every day is on opportunity to reach someone.
Thank you for your prayer support. We cannot wait to share all of our stories with you.
