Hey it’s Rebekah!
I recently departed for the Haiti Mission trip in Mole. We took four
planes to get here which was quite interesting. Haiti is NOT what I
expected. First off the land is absolutely gorgeous there are palm
trees, coconut trees and avocado trees! Mom, you would love it here!
The beach we are right across from is crystal clear, unlike anything
we have in the states!
Once we arrived we unpacked the truck and hung out at the cafeteria
for a while. Then we split up to do our own things for the day. I
tried to take a nap but that didn’t work to well. It’s so hot here! I
will not complain about Georgia heat anymore……..okay maybe I will but
it’s nothing like this.
The food here is pretty good too! Sunday, I went to the church on the
mission’s campus. I couldn’t understand ANYTHING they speak sooo fast,
but you could feel God there. After church we went to the beach, again
it’s gorgeous! Everyone here has become the local kids’ playground
I’ve seen more kids climbing on us that ANYTHING else. While it is
true that I miss my family especially mom, I am very glad I came. I
miss you mom! Dad, says he does too!
Hey it’s Courtney. I’m so happy to hear that you are all praying for
us and that we are in your thoughts. Things feel as if they’re going
really fast and it seems like we’ll be home before you really notice
we’re gone. I had really high expectations for this and it seems that
even after just a day of being here they have grown to more than I
could have imagined. Hearing your comments seriously made some of our
days. (One or two people DID cry) and I can’t wait to hear more. We
all really miss you and I don’t want to say too much because then
there will be no story to tell when we get home! Keep us in your
prayers and hearts. We all love you and miss you dearly.
I miss you dad. Can’t wait to see you Saturday. Don’t miss mom and I too much.
Hey Ashley! I miss you and the kiddos! Everything is going great.
There is sooo much I want to tell you all day! I am looking forward to
the rest of the week!
Thank you everyone for the prayers!!
Hey Marcia & Gabriel! I miss you and I think of you all time. I am
enjoying my self because I feel like I am serving the real God.
I love you.
