Haiti Day 5

It’s exciting to be a part of long term transformation! There are noticeable differences here in Haiti, even since our first trip 4 years ago. For instance, there is considerably more vegetation. The tress are taller and there’s more ground cover. While that may not seem like a big deal, it is. This country is regularly hit with hurricanes and tropical storms that have washed away their topsoil. This has been complicated by serious deforestation years ago. Haiti is just now beginning to recover. We spent the afternoon planting trees. These trees will provide shade, food, an income, and help reestablish fertile topsoil. It’s happening – we can see the change. 

We’re also seeing changed lives. Children are trusting Christ for salvation at VBS. Adults and families are hearing the gospel as we plant trees and install water filters. God is so good. 

While our team is tired, they’re doing well, keeping great attitudes. Please continue to pray for us. We need boldness tomorrow as we share the gospel and Christ’s love in very practical ways. We’re very excited – tomorrow is Goat Day.
