Today has been a very eventful day! We started by going over to a new place in Savane Mole – a place where no one from NWHCM has ever been. We did a little service for those who live there. We had an amazing turnout!
Soon after, Emma and I led dance camp for the orphanage kids. The girls and boys are dancing this year, and it has been AMAZING so far! All of them are super into the dance, and they truly care about it…so they even know it without Emma and I dancing! They rock!
We then went to the beach with the children in Susan’s special needs class and their siblings. They love the beach, and it was so great to see them having fun! Haiti truly blesses you everywhere you look. It has been a fantastic trip so far, and I cannot wait to see what the rest has in store for us!
Shout out to my awesome mom Julie Wetzel. Love you! You too dad!
Today in the morning, the whole team was able to take a 40 minute tap tap ride to a neighboring village called Savane Mole. We were able to talk, with the help of translators, to many Haitian people to invite them to our service. Our favorite part of the visit was playing soccer with the Haitian boys. It was fun to see the joy that the game brought them.
After we came back and had lunch, we joined Susan’s special needs group at the beach. Not only was the view beautiful, it was so fun to see the joy that it brought to the kids.

Today, We traveled an hour out into the country, passing thatch roof to concrete huts. Goats, cycles and taptaps, all the kids loved being waved at. They scream out to us, chase us…The love is so needed. The community gathering was awe inspiring. Folks came in their true bes clothes. The singing was straight to the heart. Beautiful voices blew the Americans out. God’s love was full and present.
Taking Susan’s Special Needs kids to ocean was a hoot. Gigi and Fedna were thrilled. Everyone had a blast! To see our kids hanging out in the water was refreshing to see youth fellowship with love, not tats and electronics and materialism. They found fun with simplicity. These young people have a purpose and no inhibitions. I love to see their strength and spirit outpour.
Family, we’re having fun and doing a great work. Mosquitos are vicious, fighting our way thru it tho.
Love you all.
Hey Friends…tomorrow begins our 3-day revival….we may not have a chance to blog tomorrow night – but DO NOT WORRY! It’s a great thing when we’re so busy doing ministry that there’s just no time to sit and talk! I call it LIFE SERVICE over LIP SERVICE!
Please feel free to leave comments. They love hearing from you all!
