FISHERS GROUP Day 1-2

Hello everyone!

First and foremost, despite the unrest going on in Haiti we want all of our friends and family to know that we have not experienced or seen any of that, God is good! All 20 of our 50-pound suitcases made it to the mission with us, thank you to everyone who contributed. Please know that because of you, many lives will be forever impacted.

Yesterday we all safely arrived from the Cessna plane in Port-Au-Prince to the beautiful Mole St. Nicolas. As soon as we got into the mission, the soccer games commenced and we were greeted by everyone when we got off the plane. Our ladies joined a weekly women’s bible study and were in awe of the sweet voices that echoed throughout the church. Immediately after we attended their dance lesson as well, our Haitian friends know how to move!

TodayTuesday, half of our team worked in the clinic and the other half went to Karenage. On our 40 minute trek, we walked along the most beautiful coastline we had ever seen. While in Karenage the majority of our time was spent playing with the children at a Catholic school during their recess. The kids love hard, and when I say hard I mean 7+ Haitian children jumping on you, yanking your arms and more running towards you when they see you have a bottle of bubbles or cell phone. Never have we felt cooler than in those moments!

The other half of the team spent the morning seeing patients in clinic and dispensing medications from the pharmacy. Our two pharmacists had the opportunity to re-organize all of the medications and make the clinic more efficient. After just a few hours, it was like night and day in there!

After lunch, our group regathered and put on a successful VBS for 35 town kids. We had field day games, relay races, played Mr. Bear Are You Awake, created canvas and t-shirt crafts, something for everyone! Lots of laughs and smiles. Although many of us cannot speak Haitian Creole we communicate through translators, smiles, and hand gestures. We will end the day with a movie night in town!

The Lord is moving mountains in all of our hearts. Please continue to pray for us to maintain energy in the days to come. We love and miss you all!

  1. Looks like all of you are having a good time. Can’t wait to hear about it.

    Dad and Lelia-Can’t wait to see you guys! Kentucky lost to LSU by two on a buzzer-beater. It should’ve been goaltending too which is really frustrating. Louisville also played Duke and blew a 23 point lead with under ten minutes to go. I FaceTimed the girls and they are having a great time. They went to school and Chloe said she had a really fun time. Ellie was the one who held the fun most of the time and she seemed super happy to hear from me and I told them that you guys had made it safely. Love you guys!

  2. Looks like you are having better weather than back here in Fishers. Looks like the kids are having lots of fun. Prayers to you all. give those kids lots of love. See you all when you return. Tammy love you and miss you.

  3. I’m so glad to hear from you! Scary things in the news about the unrest … but I know God has angels around you all, protecting you as you do His work! Praying for you all daily. Love you guys!

  4. Thank you for sharing all the pics and updates. What a blessing it is to us at home to see the love of Jesus in action! Praying for all of you💗 Love Yvonne

  5. So wonderful to see the photos and know how much you are needed and appreciated there.
    Sharing the post below because a friend from Indy, who doesn’t know we have family in Haiti, shared this evening on Facebook:

    “NVM friends and family- we want to take this moment to let you all know that due to the political unrest in Haiti we are not capable of sustaining short term teams at this time. The unrest has caused a lack of transportation and resources available to us that would be needed to bring in teams; we would like to stress that it is not due to safety concerns for our campus site. Campus will continue running as usual starting March 1st.
    Until then please join us in praying for peace in this country. Clarity for her leaders. And protection for her people.
    “This is what the LORD says: do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s” 2 Chronicles 20:15”

    Please be extra careful, especially in your travels home.
