Today many of us awoke to a 2-hour rainstorm just after midnight that was much needed after a hot day 5. After our morning devotion on the Armor of God that Paul wrote about in Ephesians we were to enjoy a great breakfast prepared by the kitchen staff. Then we prepped for a large game of Bingo amongst staff and orphans from the Northwest Haiti Mole Mission. The Rooted team brought 2 large suitcases of bingo prizes to make sure everyone would be included winning a prize. Items like towels, clothes, hat, toys and sunglasses were given away. What a great time we had helping the kids mark their bingo cards and to see the joy the kid’s faces when shouting bingo surely made our day.
After wrapping up Bingo we ate a quick lunch and were treated to an array of local artists and craftsmen who brought items for us to purchase. It was great to interact with the talented people and have them visit the Northwest Haiti Mole Mission today. Everyone found something to purchase to remind us of our wonderful opportunity to share His message on Haiti.
Later on the Rooted team prepped for a game day with the orphans. The orphans were split into three teams participating in a round robin competition. Some of the events included a wheelbarrow race, three-legged race and jumping through hula- hoops. As a grand finale the Rooted team challenged each of the three teams. We went 0-3 and enjoyed every loss. Upon the completion of the games we played kick ball and soccer for a couple hours.
Leaving soccer directly for dinner we spoke about our Sunday schedule and responsibilities for tomorrow during church. We are breaking into teams to service not only the orphans and the greater Mole community. When dinner was over we got ready for Movie Night with the orphans hosted in the dinning hall. “A Goofy Movie” was selected and the kids enjoyed a wonderful Disney movie with the Rooted team.
Thank you for your messages and responses back over the last few days. Also I appreciate you letting me share a blog about our day. May we always put His will above our own. This is ‘Papa’ Kirk☺
