building 2 almost up!
praying for Granada juice!
nice people…awkward conversations!
Today was really good. We got the second building up, it was hard, but rewarding. I learned how to use a router, which we all called, “thingy.” I talked to a Haitian who knew a little English, which was nice. Trying to talk to the Haitians isn’t easy. It’s awkward because we don’t understand Creole, and they want to have conversations. We end up using Kaitlyn a lot to help with translations. There are a few words I know though, “bonjou, bonsoir, zami, comme ye, blanc, bien, merci, and au revoir.”
Seeing the second building come up made me feel very accomplished. We have done a lot for the mission and they seem very excited and thankful. We are ahead of schedule, and Paca (Adrian) and Raymond seem very excited for the end result.
We are all really tired, and the food is very interesting. We have been playing a lot of card games when we can relax at night on the porch. Brandon, Kaitlyn, and Trilby have eaten almost all of my sunflower seeds. I need more already, and the week isn’t over yet.
There is this magical juice that we tasted on the first day here. We call it Granada juice. It is made from a natural fruit on the island called Granada. We haven’t gotten it after that but we pray for it everyday. I am also addicted to the hot chocolate. I dip my breakfast in my mug every morning. So long…
