Day 13 | Bill

It is DONE! What a day. It started with the group devotions and ended with countless children playing on the playground. We also went to the market and on the tour of some of the back country. The group was amazed at the market and how they sold the food, needless to say I don’t think they will ever talk bad about shopping at home again. The ride in the country side opened a lot of eyes to how the people here live and work. The distances they go just to get water is amazing and they usually do it more than once a day, 5 gallons at a time. Down the mountain and then back up again. It would be like walking Powell’s Mt. back home with 35 pounds of water on your head. Last night several of the team decided to sponsor a child, 7 more were selected and they will get to meet them tomorrow. It will be another great day. The afternoon was spent showing children how to use the playground, it was amazing. At one time all 8 tetertodders were being used, all 6 swings, kids were climbing up the cargo net and rock wall and others were going down the slides. Words cannot describe what it looked like but hopefully the pictures will give you an idea. Tomorrow we will have the dedication in the morning as well as our devotions. Then it will be time to start cleaning up, that’s the non-fun part. This has been a hard 2 weeks and I am ready to come home. I can’t wait to see every one and to get to story telling. Like uncle Si says, “ a story only has to be 95% true”. Love ya bron and can’t wait to see you.

  1. God is so good!!! The picturesof the children playing are wonderful, what a blessing!!! You guys have done a great job, and I think it is the best design for a playground that I have ever seen. I am so ready for you to be home but I know that your time in Haiti has been life changing for everyone.
    Love You and Miss You Terribly!!!
