Dear Church Family,
Today began early again with preparations for laying another concrete floor for a nearby family. It seemed that the project went more smoothly today. Many of us were impressed by the fact that a Haitian man cheerfully joined the concrete line. None of us knew him, but he really enjoyed it! On our return to the campus, we stopped at the house where a floor was poured last week. It was beautiful and put to great use by the family. They were very pleased!
After lunch, we began to visit families. Three goats joined the crew in the back of the truck. We started the trip by visiting a local church where Claudin, the agronomist for MH4H, explained the program of goat distribution. Then we visited three homes; each one received a female goat. We prayed for each family. At one home, the new goat was fed a handful of corn immediately.
After the goats were gone, we came back to the campus to pick up a P.E.T. (Personal Energy Transportation) cart for a young man of 14 who has a very small disfigured body. Because he would be unable to propel the cart himself, this one was modified to include a handle for pulling him. The visit with him was a joy for everyone because this young man has a beautiful smile and a joyful spirit. Our Haitian companions were very engaged with him and were excited to pull him in the cart for a trial run. Christi was happy that we had that opportunity because it proved that further modifications are needed.
Our last visit of the day was to the family of another young man, one who has had leg surgery and has both legs in casts. He needs encouragement to begin to put weight on his legs. We prayed for him as well before our return “home” for the evening.
