It is Betty and Vern…
Picnic tables are built, gates are up at the orphanage, desks are being built and swing set is up. Wonderful relationships with Haitian workers have been started…these people are eager to learn. This trip has changed our lives for the better.

Praise God for another wonderful day in Haiti. Praise God for our construction team who have accomplished so much. Seeing the children play on the swing-set is truly priceless. What simple things we take for granted.
Our guys have worked so hard and done a wonderful job. Praise God for the Haitian men who have worked alongside our guys. They are a great group of men and we hope they can remember all they have learned.
Praise God for our interpreters who have helped us create relationships with these incredible people!
Women’s Bible study was great again today. Our lesson was on Esther and how she was not afraid to do what God asked of her even though it was difficult. We talked about our fears and how God is with us no matter what. The ladies seemed to really engage in the lesson. Mama Djidji (pronounced Gigi) led us in singing and it was a great blessing to hear praises sung in both English and Creole.
Today at Preskul (the fishing village) Pastor Tim shared the gospel with the men and 4 accepted Christ. Praise God! The women taught a lesson about being a godly wife and decorated tote bags. Crafts seem to bring people together!
Tomorrow is another full day of ministry with finalizing construction, another women’s Bible study and a trip to Preskul for a celebration with the entire village.
Pray for safe travels and a great time of fellowship and ministry. Keep praying for opportunities for us to share and invest in the people of this wonderful town. Pray for the Castillo family as they minister here.
We can feel your love and prayers! They are powerful.
P.S. Janie – Blake says to tell you that the Fibber game belongs to the Castillo kids. He didn’t steal yours! 🙂
