Okay, here we go! We’re sitting at the Castillo’s home enjoying some devo time, drinking Coke and listening to music. What a glorious evening! We started this morning off in the clinic. Allen took blood pressure and complaints, Hannah cleaned ears, Grace colored with the kids, I painted toe and fingernails and Kaylee, Cassidy and Troy worked in the pharmacy.
Since the girls dorm is above the clinic, we woke up to talking (and those horrible birds) around 5:30. For some reason, the girls can ignore those sounds and go back to sleep, but I’m up for the day. It was busy, but not as busy as last Thursday. The girls went into town with Susan to visit 2 of her special needs kids. The walk wasn’t long, but it was up into the mountains so it wore us out, but well worth it to see the boys!
For the afternoon, we hosted the Granmoun for some early supper. We colored with them and Troy and Allen played some dominoes with the men-no clothespins involved in these games. We hope they enjoyed it, most took their leftovers home so it will make at least a couple of meals for them and their families.
Which leads us back to our evening at the Castillos. I must say, the orphans are like the best at uplifting spirits, just at everything really. They just desire so much love and attention, and it’s so hard to let them go when the time comes to leave them. Finally into day 7, the names are coming easier, which for me is a good thing. It’s so awesome to walk over to the hut and they come running to you. Love, love, love it! Thank you to all who have been praying for us. It has been a blessing to be here and get to enjoy and love on these people. –Melissa.
Hi everyone! Kaylee here. The more I walk around the Mole, the more beauty I find. These people are so joyful and kind and friendly. The atmosphere in Haiti is so different from the states. And I’m going to miss it. It’s difficult to believe the team will be leaving in just two days. I think Sharum was right in her comment: Melissa (mom) is going to have a hard time getting us on the plane. Thanks for the prayers and the support!
