The Haven team has already helped pour two concrete floors and have reconnected with friends. As a Valentine’s Day treat, the team share a sweet moment with a special girl. Check out the team’s day below!
6:00AM. Yes you read that right we got up at 6:00 in the morning! We woke up to a great breakfast our loving cooks had prepared for us with plenty to go around. Once we finished our meal we split up in two groups and piled in the back of the trucks and headed off to pour cement floors in neighboring homes. During this time we were able to break down barriers and build relationships; it’s these relationships that are always the highlight of my time in Haiti. It was so awesome to be a part of God’s bigger plan for these families and on this Valentine’s Day it was especially great to be able to pray a blessing of God’s love over each of the families we worked with today.
A highlight of our day was being able to see our dear friend, Annika, and talk to her about how her recovery is going. After walking on a broken leg for two years without medical attention she was hardly able to walk and had developed a large infection in her leg. This past fall she received the treatment she needed and had surgery on her leg and is now walking (almost running!) with her friends and siblings. We were able to pray over Annika and her family and let her know that people all over the world love and care for her and are continuing to pray for her healing.
