Day 11 | Becka
What a beautiful Lord ’s Day. We enjoyed an early morning service at the Haitian church here at Baptist Haiti Missions. The service was much longer than normal for us. Although we could not understand much of the sermon or songs, I really enjoyed participating in worship with them. To see the Haitian people get dressed up in their Sunday best was wonderful and convicting. So many times I wake up and throw on an outfit for church. Other days I spend so much time putting together outfits and fixing my hair. I need to spend time on Sunday mornings putting my best on for God like they do here. After church, Tiara shared with us a short devotional. She is a very smart young lady; I’m excited to see where God takes her. I’ve enjoyed getting to know the youth this week. I knew most of the youth who were here the first week but the ones this week I didn’t know as well. They are all great kids and are working/playing so well together (and without technology distracting them – that’s awesome!). I did end up going on the hike today and I’m glad I did. It was an adventure and not what I was expecting. We hiked down the hillside (the easy way I’m told) and then walked through the ravine to see some waterfalls. They were gorgeous. The water was very dirty due to the locals bathing and using the restroom in it. We rock climbed up waterfalls to see more waterfalls. I ended up busting my shoe open so now my cute pink tennis shoes are completely ruined. Only two more days of work so I think they will be able to manage that. Well I would love to continue writing but I’m really tired and it’s only 8:20. I’m heading to bed here soon as soon as Eric and I go post these blogs. Thanks Dad and Jacob for the comments on my blog – I love and miss you bunches!!
