On Sunday at about 11 a.m., we left the Port Au Prince airport on a bus headed to The Mole. The first part was paved, but the next was like a dirt road, and most of the ride was in a rocky river bed. Along the road side, as we traveled on
the bus, there were woman carrying bowls on their heads, goats, dogs, skinny cows, and Haitians going about their business, stopping to stare at the bus as it went by.
The 11 hour bus ride was a wild one – plenty of bumpiness, scrapping, and rocking around. At 8:30 p.m. we broke down at the bottom of a hill next to a house. We got out of the bus and enjoyed the cool night with a sky full of piercing stars against a pitch black sky. The Haitians played reggae music as we swayed and danced under the stars.
After two hours, the bus was fixed and we were back on the road toward The Mole. We arrived at The Mole around midnight and ate dinner, which was our
first actual meal in at least a day – it was wonderful.

(Victoria Holloway) We ate breakfast at 9 a.m. then my group headed out in the village for vacation bible school with the Haitian children. Another group went to do construction on the clinic, and the remaining group preached the gospel from hut to hut in the village.
The children were just as beautiful as the teal and deep blue water along the coastline with the green palm trees. I told the children about the story of Noah and the Ark then we colored, blew bubbles, and played games with them.
At 1 p.m. we had lunch then headed over to a large tent with wooden benches where Josh and I spoke on the gospel to Haitian teens and twenty-year-olds.
God is good. That’s really all that matters! Please continue to pray for God to get His will done. There were only a few Haitian locals that showed up, but God did so much work with who were there! During our small groups, the interpreters asked a ton of questions about the local church and what it means to be saved.
Continue to pray for God to build strong relationships within our team and the Haitian community. God is already opening doors for his Gospel to be shared- we’ll be going to a small village tomorrow to do hut-to-hut evangelism! I couldn’t
be more excited. Please join us in prayer for hearts to be open and for spiritual warfare become a reality in our life. May God get His glory by showing His power when He shatters the voodoo culture that floods through Haiti.
