Happy Tuesday! It’s been a happy one here! The day started with yummy pancakes and fresh mango! Beth led us in a great devotional and then we headed to the clinic for the morning. We had such a great time meeting the Haitian women, men and children there. Two families came with their handicapped children because they heard there were people who wanted to help them. One of the things Emily wanted to do was work with families of handicapped children while she was here and this is what the 2 summer interns want to do also. God is amazing and his plans are so perfect! Karen got to hold a 2 month old baby boy for most of the time and Emily was a pharmacy tech!
After clinic time, Emma & Susan (the interns), a translator, Emily & I went to the homes of the handicapped kids. We were amazed at how far they walked to come to the clinic! These mommas are so sweet and so kind and such good mothers. The love and hospitality we felt at their homes was incredible & we could feel God’s spirit in the home. We will go back on Thursday. Please pray for us to share God’s love & acceptance of all to these families and to give us wisdom to know the best ways to help the children and families.
After a yummy lunch of Emily’s favorite –Hatian Spaghetti (which I learned to make), we headed to town for some hut to hut ministry. We found the most amazing group of kiddos and jumped rope, played duck, duck, goose and London Bridge. Even one of the men jumped rope and was so happy he went around shaking all our hands because he was able to do it. After hut-hut, we went to the orphanage and loved on the kiddos. They are so sweet and so happy and so fun to love on and hold. I think we get more from them than we could ever give to them
Tomorrow morning we go to the fishing village of Preskul and then pour some love out on the women who work here! This will include arts & crafts, pedicures, back rubs and a devotional. Please pray that they feel loved and cherished because of this.
Thank you all for your messages! Elizabeth, we miss you but know we are RIGHT where God wants us. We love you all!!!
Karen & Emily
