Day 2 | Emily Bleigh
Today, our bible study was about the fruit of the spirit. The one I struggle with is kindness. I don’t really like people just in general. Unless I’ve known you for a long time, I’m probably not going to interact with you much. Well, today I stepped out of my comfort zone, and I interacted with both Haitians, and the white people that live here. I also learned today, that they are happy with what they have, even though it’s next to nothing. Bill told us today that we probably brought more money for spending than they make in a year. This really changed my outlook on a lot of things. My family is going through some rough times at the moment because most of the coal mines are shutting down, which will put my dad out of a job. I realize, even when we may not be as comfortable as before, we will still be very rich. The weather today was awesome! My jobs today consisted of sifting sand and weeding a lot of gardens. It was a good day.
