Wolfforth Day 4…

We’ve had issues uploading the blog….this is from yesterday.

Howdy Friends and Family,

This is Mikaela and Kayti. I, Mikaela will be writing in bold, and I Kayti will be writing in italics. 

Today was the hump day of our trip but our amazing team is still powering through with the same hope, love, and energy we had on the very first day. For my group we had VBS for the town children and we had a blast. We sang silly songs, danced, colored, and indulged in Gods word… Stephanie and Justin led an impactful message over identity by using Zacheaus as an example. 

My group did construction on a new building that is going in next to the clinic and the girls dorm. It is going to be a part of the clinic and Pharmacy. We worked along side the Haitian workers which was cool. Our job was to dig 4, 4 foot trenches to be the base of the building. One person would pick axe the ground to get the dirt loose and then we would shovel it out and repeat the process till it was 4 feet deep. The whole team worked really hard and we did great. We really bonded over this experience through the sweat and dirt. 

Susan has a special needs ministry that she does here on the mission. One of the little boys that comes to it is named Mack Evens. He is 4 years old and fits into 18 month clothing. He is super cute and adorable. Susan picks him up early on the days that she does her class. I got to hold him for a little while this morning and it melted my heart. He just looked up at me with his big eyes and it was the best thing ever. 

Later in the day we had sports camp downtown with more of the town children and played basketball and soccer. While half of the team played games with the children, some of us stayed with the younger kids and painted nails and colored. I got my nails painted by the kiddos for the third time this week (thank goodness, what would I do without a good manicure?).

Overall, it was an amazing day with the kids. As we continue our week we have all come to the realization that no matter what activity we partake with the kids, it’s all a big deal to them. Being with these wonderful children whether they are the orphans or locals brings so much joy to my heart and I can’t help but feeling extremely thankful to be here. With that said, please keep not only the teams health in your prayers but also the lives of all the people in Haiti.  Taylor has had a bit of traveler’s tummy and could use some extra prayers. Her fever broke early today and she is feeling better. 

Currently as we are typing this blog some of the team members are getting their hair done by some of the staff here. The girls have cornrows and the guys also got some braids put in. 

While getting my hair braided, I felt as if my hair was getting ripped out but it was worth it since the end result looks sick. Braeden’s hair is hands down the best one while Kade’s is the most interesting. Pictures to follow… 

Additionally, watching my teammates grow over this week has been such a blessing. Now onto the shout out portion of our blog. First I would like to shoutout my mom and dad, Lorenzo and Liliana Aleman, the Kevil family, and the Lawrence family… and pretty much any one who helped getting me here. Thanks a bunch. P.S Jaden, have you ever had a machete from Haiti? NO? Okay I got you… 

Shoutout to Jodie and Al Martin from Maddi. Love and miss y’all. It’s going great this week. Um… I may or may not come back with a boyfriend. IDK. He almost kissed me and yeah. So I’m not single! YAY! Love yall and hope you like him! Still single but very stressed. Love you all!

Now its Stephanie’s time to talk… Hey family and friends (Kennard’s, Boston’s, and Ward’s) I miss you all and today was a great day! I got to teach VBS and tell them about Zaccheus! It went super well and it was fun getting to work with the translator! I can’t wait to see you guys! I love you all so much and can’t thank you enough for making this trip possible!
