Well it’s my turn to let our friends and family know about our day. My name is ED Myers for those of you that don’t know me – I’m the old crazy guy of our team. My first trip to Haiti I get to report on first fun day! After a breakfast of oatmeal we walked to the beach and our mission helpers and team loaded a boat for a 40 min ride along the coast line to a little fishing village of 20 some huts . They were all thatched roof huts. It was like visiting Gilligan’s Island . We watched them mend nets and clean fish. Of course there was some time for soccer. They were warm people like all the people we have seen here.
After about 2 hours we loaded our boat for return to the Mole for lunch of vegtables over rice. After lunch we walked down to the beach and went swimming for about 2 hours. The water was as warm as bath water. All white sandy beach and the water was a deep blue-green. You could see your feet with the water all the way to your chest. We just a had great time playing in the water. Well we wish our friends and family the best. It was our best day so far. God is Good. God Bless — be back home next Thursday! By the way it’s still hot! Hi Hon! Miss ya! Love ya, Ed
Hey church family we love yall and miss y’all. Jason I am praying that God will speak through you in a very powerful way tomorrow. Kelly, Makenzie, Haden, and Ian, I love you guys so much and hope everyone is doing well. See ya Thursday. Love Donnie/Dad.
Hey all… Bruce here! It was a great day. I had my first Coke (no Mountain Dew here) this evening, so feeling much better. Boat ride and swimming were a great change of pace today… although a little sun burned this evening. Is it really November because we can’t tell down here??? Looking forward to attending a Haitian church service tomorrow morning. Please continue to keep praying that God uses us in a great way to impact the lives of those we are in contact with. See yah’ll soon! Western
Hi family and friends,
SO good to hear from all of you. I really miss you, but as you read in the above blog this continues to be a real adventure. I”m hoping that I am giving back to the Haitians as much as I’m receiving from them. The ocean was a fantastic playground today and the fishing village was something else! Isa….so proud of you for making the Holiday Festival of Choirs. I’ll be there!! Eli…..Hmmmm….video games….why doesn’t that surprise me! Glad you had a good day. Brady….I miss you too and can’t wait to see you. Give Bailey a kiss for me! Chad…..I’ll be glad to take G & G to Peoria on the 14th. It will be good to see all of you and that will be in just a few days. Love you. Mom (Karen)
