While in Haiti

Several people have asked me what our team will be doing while in Haiti and I have been telling them I wasn't really sure.  We had a meeting Sunday and I am so excited about some of the things I found out we will be doing while there!  The first day there we will be having a Luau with the kids.  This will be a HUGE treat for them.  We plan to bring a little bit of the fun to them with grass skirts, leis and just decorations in general.  Another treat to them will be teriyaki chicken for dinner!  The children are used to eating mainly rice for their meals and very little meat if any.

The second day we are there, we will be hosting a slumber party for the girls who live in the girl's home.  There are 5 women going, so this is going to be a blast.  We are in the process of finding enough nightgowns for all of the girls.  I have gotten enough fingernail polish together and we are also bringing snacks and High School Musical to watch.  I know this is going to be so much fun for these girls and I get an opportunity to see what it would be like with a little girl in the house! 

Another day we have the opportunity to go to Tortuga.  If you are not familiar with Tortuga, it is an island north of Haiti.  We will actually be able to see the island from where we will be staying.  This island became famous by the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  While it is a small island, there are still people living there who do not know God.  While there for the day, we will be doing crafts with some of the children that live there and really just praying over the island.

The rest of the time will be spent mainly helping out where needed.  There are several construction type things that need work and lots of children that need love.  The workers are tired and need a much deserved break.  We hope to come in and ease some of their workload for the week and show them love and appreciation as well. 

I continue to ask for prayers for our team and the people of Haiti.  We will be leaving the afternoon of the 21st and will be landing in Haiti 8:00 am on the 22nd.  I am currently praying that we will be a blessing to these people we are going to minister to and for the safety of our entire team.
