Week 2, Monday, February 2

Today was our first work day of this trip, and we got a lot of work done. When we arrived yesterday there was a freshly-poured concrete pad—at the end of the work day today all of the exterior walls (and one of the interior walls) were up.

The week 2 Haiti team assembled at LFMC on Saturday morning and headed for the airport. This week’s team consists of Rick and Kim, Doug, Margie, Anita, and Vernon, plus Stephanie, Tasha, Kenna, Randy, Larry, and McKenna, who were also part of the week 1 team. Our itinerary took us from KC to Dallas, then from Dallas to Miami, where we spent the night; then we caught a flight from Miami to Cap Haitien on Sunday morning.

Today was a relaxed day of work and a great day to spend time with kids at the Children’s Village.  Larry and Randy cut rebar ties for our team for next week, the women on our team worked more on the sponsorship project for Christmas and Jesús and Richard did some electrical and plumbing repairs in the existing homes while Haitians mixed and poured the concrete pad for the new transitional home.

Our travel to Haiti was pretty uneventful.  Eight of us left Lawrence on Saturday morning with our donation bags, met Randy in the airport and then connected with Brian from Indiana and Rocky from Alaska in Miami.
