Meridian Group 2016… Day 6

Today is the 5th full day in The Mole, and it’s gone by so fast! A few of us stayed in the clinic while some worked on campus projects. I stayed in the clinic and painted nails, colored, and ate suckers in the waiting room with some of the kids (my heaven).

At lunch, we had Haitian spaghetti (finally—a team fav) and decorated for the orphanage kids’ birthday party 🙂 Hut-to-hut followed, which was so amazing. Our group talked and prayed with two women and, again, painted nails and played with a tennis ball.

Afterwards was the orphanage kids’ birthday party, and we took silly pictures with funny hats, danced, ate brownies, and gave hugs! It was a much-needed break with those adorable kids! It’s almost dinner, and the orphanage kids’ movie night is later, and we’re watching The Incredibles!

It has been an incredible trip already, and I cannot believe that it’s already halfway over. Thank you everyone for your prayers!

P.s. Mom, I told Máprelia that you said “hi” and that you love her, and her eyes lit up when I said “Elaine” and she smiled from ear to ear 🙂 I love you guys!
