Hello fellow bloggers, this is Tyra in Haiti, sharing the love of Jesus with the people of Haiti. Today we did VBS (vacation bible school) with the “mountain kids” while the other kids were at school. We shared our “because of Jesus…” stories, and I as very nervous :/ But I think I did okay!
Last night we got our hair braided, (Haylee, Mikayla,Lindsey,Spencer,Marla,Tyra, and Aaron.) we look RAD!! Anyway VBS was a success, we taught & answered questions about Jesus. The kids were very open about questions 🙂
Then we went to relieve to orphanage workers and watched the babies for the afternoon. We just ate dinner, it was delicious! Mom and I just shared our devotions for the night and are now reading the posts from the blog. Love you and miss you much!
Love, Tyra 🙂
A couple of other interesting things happened today. Round two of Lindsey getting sick. Jody gave her medicine and she slept through the rest of the day. (About 9 1/2 hours) She is feeling better now, but could still use the prayers.
While we were at the orphanage, Caleb climbed a palm tree and knocked down a coconut so we could eat it. Then the translators got more coconuts down so we could drink out of them.
We brought a baby goat into the gate where the orphans were since they had never seen those type of animals before. One little girl had mixed emotions about it. She was excited, shocked, and scared.
We are still going strong, and enjoying all our time here. We are sad that we only have a couple of days left, but are thankful that we had the chance to come. (Don’t worry, we are still trying to find ways to stay…)
Tomorrow we are going back to Preskul and stopping in a village called Karenage. We’re going to play games and just love on them. Thanks for all the comments. We love listening to Jody read them out loud to us every night at dinner. Keep praying lots! We love and miss you all!
Lindsey and Mikayla
