Meridian Day 6

Hey Friends and Family,

We just wrapped up an amazing day here at the Mole. We started the morning with biscuits, oatmeal, and coffee. Students lead our devotional before our journey to Savane Mole where we split up into two groups. One group went Hut to Hut and the other lead VBS. Children flocked from their huts to watch the puppet show and play games. Adults invited us into their homes to hear the word of God. After our journey back to the Mole, we ate a filling lunch of rice and stew. Following this, we started our multiple ministry programs: good touch/bad touch, self-defense, men’s sex education, women’s VBS, and dance camp. The ladies in the women’s group made bracelets out of beads and safety pins, and the final dance camp session was a huge success. The girls preformed a lovely recital for the rest of the group and mission. After this, we had a 3-hour period where we just played with the orphans, blowing bubbles and playing with balloons. The market opened up in the cafeteria at 5:30, so we headed inside to buy rings, Haitian vanilla, and weaved baskets from the local merchants. After this was over, we packed up hot dogs and yellow cake and headed down to the beach. Two of us were baptized in the ocean tonight, Alison Rich and Jan Wellemeyer, and it was an amazing experience for all of us. There wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd. We then ate and had a really nice devotional by one of the interns for our last night here. We walked back and prepared to pack up our things for an early departure the next day. God has taught us all so many things this week and I hope that leaving the Mole doesn’t change the servant hearts that we have adopted while we have been down here.

  1. You guys look like you’re having an awesome time! I’m keeping you all in my prayers and hoping you are doing well. Enjoy the warm weather since it’s been cold and rainy here in Michigan! Love you and miss you!

  2. What a blessing to see and hear all your good news! It is hard to believe the time is near to welcome you back home. I so much appreciate the time you have given to keep us here at home involved in your very important mission in Haiti. I know you will be returning to the states different than the people who left us. I can’t wait to wrap my arms around my Morgan and hear all about this adventure.
    Safe travels home
