It was a splendid day at the Mole today. After church, a small group of us walked through the town to invite the community children to our VBS activities we are having throughout the week. The children were overjoyed to see us and they came running. Our walk was beautiful along the ocean and through the mountains as we were able to enjoy the landscape of Haiti. When we returned part of our group put on a party for the children in the orphanage. When we arrived the children were dressed in their nicest clothes. We started by serving brownies and praying with them. The remainder of the party was spent loving on the children and making them feel special. They decorated crowns and played with balloons. Most of the children had more fun popping the balloons rather than using them for games. Energy was high and we are sure they will sleep well tonight!
We miss and love you all, thank you for all your prayers and support! Love, Susan and Barb

We started our day by joining the Haitians at church. Some group members attended the main service, while part of the team helped with the children’s service. We were privileged to see such sincere worship of our great God.
Bethany had the special task of interpreting for a Deaf young man at the children’s service. How exciting that God would choose to use a skill she learned years ago, for His glory in Haiti.
In the afternoon, while part of our team entertained the orphans with a party, the other half of the team hosted a spa day for the orphan mamas. We had a great time pampering the mamas and showing them our appreciation for all of their hard work and the love they show the orphans. It was especially enjoyable for the women to receive massages from Katie Lyon! They seemed to really enjoy them! It was also such a pleasure to look the mamas in their eyes, show them God’s love, and thank them for all they do. We were blessed just as much as they were, I’m sure.
We’re looking forward to what God has in store for us tomorrow!
