Last night was a hard night for some. There are all kinds of strange sounds here that we don’t hear at home, like donkeys, mules, roosters, dogs, and people yelling at all hours. You never know what you're going to hear. Last night it sounded like a donkey was giving...

Today was the first day I did not have to go to Port, and it was a most relaxed day. After breakfast Karl had devotion ready for us--I have to say it is one of the best parts of the day. Then he went over a few things that needed to be done, but most everyone knew...

You would never guess what I did today. OK, you guessed it--I went back to Port. Simon and I have had to go to Port au Prince eight days in a row.  That is a record, by far, but the good news is we got back today by 1:00. It was so nice to spend some time with the...

Today was almost identical to yesterday, except that after breakfast and devotion, Bryan joined George, Simon and me to go into Port. I wanted Bryan to see where we purchase our supplies, also to see a little more of Port. The rest of the crew stayed behind and...

The day of rest (Sunday) was over, and it was time to put the hand on the plow. This morning after breakfast and devotion, Karl led off with the projects that were before us. Ken from WI and a friend, John, who was here in Nov. 2011, designed a serving table for us...

This Sunday morning we had a nice breakfast which Ginette prepared for us, and afterward Karl gave the devotion. As always, it was very good, and actually lasted about two hours--though it didn’t seem like it. It was just a great time of Christian brothers discussing...

Last night we thought we would let the kids have some fun, so Simon and I found some Tom & Jerry cartoons on DVD in Port. Chuck played over an hour of them outside on the side of Gabriel--we now have a portable cinema! The kids and adults laughed and laughed. It...

Today Simon and I went into Port au Prince to pick up Ginette and buy food for the team. First we went to Petionville to buy paint for the mission house, then we met Ginette at One Stop Market. She already had half of the groceries in the cart. She is as much a part...

Today was a great day. We had guests from the First Baptist Church of St. Charles. Pastor Brad had called me about 3 weeks ago to see if they could come up and visit us for a day, and I told him we would love that, so we set the date for today. They have been working...

I guess I will start off with a funny story. This morning when I woke up around 7:00, I couldn’t find my toothpaste or my toothbrush, so I asked Chuck if he had an extra one. He found a toothbrush that I had left here, but there was no toothpaste, so he went in the...
