Today is our last day here in this wonderful country of Haiti. It is such a bittersweet day; bitter because I don’t want to leave the children or the people, and sweet because I know I will be back again. Today we cleaned the outside of the mission house, Pastor Do’s house, the school, and then touched up on paint. This is my third trip here to Z’Orange, Haiti, and it has been nothing short of amazing. It is such a joy to see the happiness on all the children’s faces, and just to smile at them goes a long way. A simple game of slaps, or double double, futbol, or even painting the girls’ nails, makes them so happy. As we leave tomorrow I am sad, as I do not want to leave, but I’m excited to see what God has planned next for me. I ask for you all to pray for a safe trip home for everyone on our team, and please keep Haiti in your prayers, too!

Wow, this trip has been so amazing! I am so blessed to have a second chance to come here. I can’t believe it’s almost over already, it seems like just two days ago we were getting up at 2:30 in the morning to get to the airport. If I had to pick a favorite part about our trip, which is really hard, it would have to be visiting Daniel in the voodoo village. We could have been scared to go down to his village, but we trusted in God and we weren’t scared at all. I love being able to enjoy spreading the word of God with all the Haitians through the little skits we had prepared for VBS, and just by playing the slap game or double double with them, too. I have many new zamis (friends) as well as several buddies who remembered me from last time. When we got here one of the children said my name before I told him. I felt sort of overwhelmed that I had made such a large impact last time that some kids still remembered my name, I just thought that was crazy. I am sad to leave, but at the same time I am excited to see my family, sleep in my own bed and take a nice warm shower. I can’t wait to come back if given the opportunity. Thank you for all the prayers, and please don’t forget to keep praying for Haiti. Bonswa!
