Heartfelt highlights in Haiti....
According to Todd S., first time mission-tripper to Haiti---"I feel like we made a big difference with the help we provided in the short time we were there. There is however a lot more to be done. With God's guidance, progress is inevitable. How quickly is another story. The trip was enlightening and heartfelt."
Steve M. expressed gratitude to Pastor B. for inviting the team of men to participate in the build of the New Christian Church of Tabarre's property. "I am forever thankful to God for putting the country of Haiti on my heart as well as for giving me the health and stamina to withstand some tough conditions". He feels a sense of accomplishment and pride in the effort put forth by his team members as well as in working alongside the hard-working men of Haiti. "The everyday weather conditions make work in Haiti TOUGH to put it lightly. This was no easy task and I am grateful to have participated in the project. I am humbled by the generosity of those that opened their hearts to help finance this wall. So much more is left to do and God-willing, it will be done in His name. I recommend anyone even considering mission trips to trust God and make the move."
Pastor Brisenault stated that the men working on the land the following week requested the team back--
a Haitian proverb says "Men anpil chay pa lou."...... Many hands make the load lighter!
The men took time to partake in a party for the girls at HOJ celebrating their summer months birthday days!
So much more is to be done, and very hot, hard work! Still needed as of today, the gate for the entry, a transformer for electric--and yes, believe it or not--more rock--but in gravel form! If you're invested in this project, look for details to come in your email!
