We left the CSI House about 7:30 a.m. and went to the shop where the truck is located. Joshua and Karl worked with Curt to weld some rebar for the shade house that Joshua will be building in Z’Orangé. While they did this NaNa (Haitian friend) and I went and filled a propane bottle and picked up 11 bottles of water. They have Culligan water here in five gallon plastic bottles. We also stopped by Dottie’s Guest House here in Port-au-Prince. I have e-mailed her before but never met her or been to her guest house. We found it and were very pleased. It is very nice and clean, and located in a safe area that has city electricity the majority of the time. There’s no hot water but this time of year you don’t really need it. Not too many places have hot water. When we get to Z’Orangé we will be taking showers from 55 gallon drums filled with creek water so this is very nice. We met Dottie and she is wonderful. She showed us the entire house, upstairs and down. Afterwards, we returned to the shop to pick up Karl and Joshua and headed to the grocery store to buy supplies for the team. This is a pretty big project for one man so I was very glad Karl and Joshua were with me to help. I left them to start shopping and went to the ice house to fill up our coolers so we could spoil the team with cold drinks.

Again God was so good; we found most everything we needed at the grocery store except two or three things that we can get tomorrow. We were able to get back to the CSI house a little after 1 p.m., take a shower and relax the rest of the day. We haven’t had any down time since we arrived. It was great to just relax. Tomorrow we will finish up the shopping and pick up the team around 3 to 6 p.m. You never know.
