Hey!! It’s Trey and Breeley – and we are apart of the Texas Tech Wesley team!
It has been such an amazing experience so far in Haiti! We arrived in Haiti yesterday and we have been very busy! Today Breeley started out painting the girl’s room at the orphanage and while we would wait for it to dry, we got to hang out with the kids. While we were hanging out at the orphanage, there was a girl named Mirlene who grabbed me and from then on she has hardly left my side. The girls love singing and dancing to The Greatest Showman and playing games outside.
Trey’s group took a 20-minute boat ride to Preskul, and did a Vacation Bible School there. They enjoyed getting to hang out and spend time coloring with the kids from the village. We finished with soccer and the kids loved it!
After both groups got back we led a VBS with about 100 kids from the town and The Mole. We had crafts, games, skits, and a lesson and the kids enjoyed every minute of it. After VBS, Breeley went to the swimming pool and led swimming lessons with 5 boys from our on-campus orphanage. The boys loved it and caught on very quickly!
After the boys that learned to swim today left, we enjoyed some time with our team and played in the pool until dinner time. Trey went to the shakoon and played with the orphan kids. They love the time they get with us and never want it to end. We ended the night enjoying a Haitian meal and talking in our small groups after hearing a devotion from Tom, a board member who is visiting while our team is here to help out. Tomorrow we will be working in the clinic, going to Karnage and continuing the painting for the girl’s room. We can’t wait to see how the rest of the week goes as well as see the relationships that are built while we are here.
HI! This is Kayti, I went to the clinic this morning while the others did the painting and went to Preskul. It was kinda slow today since it is not normally open on Mondays but there was still a few people that came and we were able to help them. A little boy came in who had cut his finger really bad so we cleaned it up really good then put a bandage on it. After that, a bag of fruit snacks made it all better. I also cleaned some of their ears and painted nails while they were waiting to be seen by the nurse. So far Haiti has been great! Travel has been really smooth and hopefully the last 5 bags (mine and 4 supply suitcase) get here sooner rather than later!
P.S. Caleb is still alive and feeling a lot better.
PLEASE leave comments! Teams absolutely love to hear from friends & family! Comments are read every night at dinner. It’s like getting mail at camp! 🙂
Also..the pics with Al are of the kids acting out Peter walking on the water to Jesus! I love it when the Bible comes alive! 🙂
