Missions Trip Blog
Just wanted to quickly let our readers know that the first team made it home safely on Saturday, February 15, according to schedule. We were tired and sunburned and a bit travel-weary, but our return trip was uneventful--always a blessing during international travel.
Here’s the sort of thing you don’t see everyday in the States: during our morning bus ride to the Kids Alive compound today, team member Carolyn suddenly pointed out the side of the bus, shouting, “Oh my gosh!!” We all looked where she was pointing and saw a Haitian woman carrying a large metal bowl on her head—with a complete cow’s head in it.
If you wanted to see more photos from Haiti, your wish has been granted! Here is a smattering of photos from earlier in the week. (Click on the photos to view full-size images.)
Bonjou from Haiti!
At times it has seemed that the work is progressing slowly, but we are making progress on the foundation of the home we are building. Today we continued preparing for the foundation pour by cutting rebar to length and cutting wire that will be used to tie the rebar cages and wire mesh and foam panels together.
(We apologize in advance for the length of this post—it covers the better part of two days; we hope to be more brief in the future.)
Week 1 team has arrived in the Dominican Republic!
