Fowler Group Day 1 & 2…

Happy Easter from Mole St Nicolas Haiti.  We started the day at sunrise with a 6:00 am service at the Mission’s church.  It is always interesting to experience a worship service in another language and another culture.  Even though we could not understand the sermon or event or words to the songs, we knew we were celebrating the resurrection and worshiping the same God together.  It’s a powerful experience and a great reminder that we are brothers and sisters with the Haitians through Jesus.

After church we had a leisurely morning. We got settled in our quarters and unpacked (some of us caught up on the sleep that was lost when we left from our Miami hotel at 4:00am).  We had Haitian spaghetti for lunch – a favorite of many returning team members.  We had Creole lessons at the beach after lunch – the most beautiful classroom any of us has ever experienced.

Our luggage arrived in the late afternoon and we unpacked supplies and prepared for a day of ministry.  This evening we were the guests of the Castillo family at their house.  They cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill and we had a relaxing evening.

Tomorrow will be the beginning of the parenting class and an Easter Party for the children who had good attendance during the past year at church.  Some of us will do hut to hut visits and work with the special needs ministry.  We are looking forward to getting started on the planned ministry projects we brought and whatever opportunities that come our way.

All are safe and rested and happy to have experienced Easter in Haiti!
