Day 7 | Allie Ramsey
I can’t believe our final day has come and go. It doesn’t feel like we’ve been here for a week, but within this past week I know personally that I have been impacted so much! We come to foreign countries with the thought that we are going to impact their lives, but in all reality they are the ones impacting our lives. Over the past week I have made so many memories of Haiti and the people that they are no words to explain how I feel about this place. I would love the opportunity to come back here and serve in the country of Haiti! Today I got to meet my sponsor child for the second time, and wow was that humbling. With the gifts that I brought her, you would’ve thought I gave her a million dollars. While I watched her play on the Ark today, she was smiling from ear to ear and that’s the best thing. No matter what she may or may not have, she is so happy with life! It’s so easy to say that you’ve come to a foreign country for a mission trip, but we have to take back what we have encountered here to our own lives. I’m not ready to leave honestly, I’ll just be counting down the days until I can come back!!
