Haiti Day 2

Sorry for the delay, internet access has been very poor. This is yesterday’s (Sunday’s) post without pictures. Many more pictures will come as the Internet allows.

Today was very full, not with work projects yet, but with worship and orientation. We enjoyed a tour of Mission of Hope’s main campus in Titanyen. 

We got to see their amazing clinic which includes an ER, prosthetic clinic, dental clinic, and soon an OR. They also operate mobile clinics through the villages in the region. They’re offering some of the best medical care in the country. 

We also got to tour their various shops that provide job training and enployment for Haitians including a coffee and ice cream shop, an art gallery, and a shop that sells various hand made goods like jewelry. 

One amazing part of the ministry here is how they are feeding 91,000 Haitians daily!

We took a tour through several villages where MOH has done amazing work providing improved housing and water for the locals. 

Worship at the Church of Hope was amazing, even if it was in Haitian Creole. It’s interesting to see how other believers worship our God so passionately. 

Dinner tonight was a traditional Haitian meal of chicken, rice, beans, and plantains, prepared by some local women. It was delicious.

We also got to see the retirement village MOH has established as well as the technical school and sports clinic they are currently building.

Finally we concluded our day with a time of worship and celebration back at the Church of Hope. 

These are just the highlights. As you can see it was a very full day of cathing the vision for how God is at work here. Tomorrow we will be busy with VBS and planting trees. 

Prayers for our team are appreciated. We already have a couple of students who are feeling the effects of the heat. Everyone is ok but this week will be physically challenging.
