SOUP FOR YOU – AND SOUP FOR YOU – AND SOUP FOR YOU!
New Year’s Day is one of Haiti’s biggest Holidays – it’s their Independence Day!
Part of the tradition here is to share pumpkin soup with your neighbors. The soup is full of vegetables and meat! It’s an expensive soup to make because of all the ingredients required. It truly is a treat to eat – and something that most ONLY get once a year… if at all.
We made 15 LARGE pots of soup…enough for 1000 bowls! It’s our hope and desire that they start this New Year off with a full belly. We want them to have the hope of Jesus Christ – and the hope of what 2018 could bring.
At 5am on New Year’s Day – we had a crew that served pumpkin soup to our Mole Community. Then we had a crew that traveled to Preskul and Karenage by boat to pass out the remaining! Below are some pictures from our Pumpkin Soup Celebration!
PUMPKIN SOUP PREPARATIONS: It takes a dedicated staff of 6 and 15+ hours to prepare enough soup for this event.
MOLE COMMUNITY: 5AM – We passed out 600 cards a few days before.
