From Dr. Lillpop’s Group
They didn’t get a chance to blog today but I will fill you in on their day. They saw 101 patients today in the clinic. We turned away about 50 more just because we didn’t have time to see everyone.
Two of the ladies & 4 of the teens went with the drama team to MareRouge to pick up 16 goats!! These animals were purchased by the team and the Pastor has picked out 8 needy families to receive a pair of goats. We also have a dozen chickens to give away tomorrow too! Though it was quite the adventure for PVBC to ride with the goats – definitely a story to remember – these goats are going to change the lives of 8 families who yesterday had no hope of caring for their children.
Tonight is movie night at the town square so everyone left and they didn’t get a chance to write.
It’s been such a blessing to this community to have the medical team here. Everyone in town is talking about the amazing service they are providing! Lots of pregnant mommas were also able to learn the gender of their baby, if they were measuring okay, & making sure there was just one bun in the oven! Pretty awesome!
From PVBC Group:
Kaylee and Alisa here! We are excited to share that today was a great day! We preformed the Freedom Drama four times, most of which we did while dry. It sprinkled a little, but that’s nothing compared to yesterday. Thank goodness!
But the real story is what we had to ride with: goats. So many goats. They were tied up by their hooves and laid under our seats, which really decreased our elbowroom. As could be expected, they bleated a lot, and they sounded like people! But even with God pushing our comfort zones to the max, we were able to continue sharing the Good News. We had some awesome conversations with the people who saw the drama. (While here, we’ve made up a word, “quale,” which means awesome, so you could say the conversations were pretty quale.) All in all, despite the very interesting sights, sounds, and smells we’ve been experiencing, we’re having a quale time doing the Lord’s work. Much love to everyone back in the States!
Do you know how hard it is to be in pictures! Especially when it is pouring down rain or when we have 16 goats on the truck??? I’m only at 180 pics, so only 320 more! Sincerely, you know who.
Ryan and Shannon here. This has been quite the adventure so far. We are so blessed to be a part of this team and have enjoyed getting to know the students and bringing the gospel out into Haiti. Even though we endured rain all day yesterday and a smashed truck full of people and goats today, it has truly been amazing. We love you all and thank you so much for keeping all of us in your prayers. Alexis and Taylor, we love you and miss you so much! Keep being good for grandma and grandpa! West Englewood friends, tell my first graders I miss them! Mom and Dad Helms, thank you for taking care of our babies and we hope our fish friends are happy and we love you and miss you! Mom and Dad Taylor, we love you and miss you! God Bless!
Lexie and Veronica here! Goats. So many goats. Veronica really, really, really, really, really hates goats at the moment. Human feet are apparently a good bathroom for goats. On another note, the freedom drama went extremely well. The first time we performed, around 5 people made the decision to give their lives to Christ. The viewers of the drama had amazing questions. A man in the last village actually wanted to pray for us. Everything that happened today made us all see that we are comfortable being out of our comfort zone.
We each have a reason why today could be considered bad, but we all know that is just Lucifer trying discourage us. We also found out that Troy is a goat whisper, because he was able to calm them down in some of the worst spots. Brian was able to translate everything for us because he is able to speak goat fluently. BRIANS A BABE. (That’s from Brian…) Anyway, there have been so many reasons where I personally have really wanted to give up on everything but then stepping back and thinking of the people I’m trying to share the gospel with and love on I realized that I can’t. I will admit that today I did kind of lose it and was just very irritated with really, everything. Despite everything I came back and Mikela wanted me to teach her a dance so I guess you can say I went back to my comfort zone. Much Love to everything back home, we miss you all very much!! Love you!! Kisses –A 😉
Hey everyone!! Today was quite the day on the truck but with my past experience with goats and smelly things I was able to push through! Time for the movie but I love and miss you all! –Cassidy
Hi guys! I miss you all and can’t wait to see you say hi to Scotty and Chris for me love you- Elijah
