Today was a very crazy and eye opening day for our group and especially me. This morning we woke up and realized it was our last day and we all got a little sad. Haiti has left such an impact on our lives and faith journey which makes it so much harder to leave. After we had breakfast, we headed out to go deliver goats to the families who were in the program. This program is through Many Hands for Haiti and it supplies families with a goat for how ever it needs to be used for that family. Arriving to pick up the goats was hard. When the goats were picked up, they just started screaming and they didn’t want to leave. This was really hard to see and hear but deep down we all new that God had blessed these families with these goats for a reason so we knew that what was happening was for the best.
Dropping the goats off to the two families was also very eye opening. Our first family was a family of three and they were in need of a new home. Seeing this made my heart break because I, myself, take things for granted way too easily and seeing that this family is living in terrible conditions and don’t have anything makes me realize that the life I have is truly a blessing. The second family we visited was a family of three as well. Both families were very grateful and when we prayed with them, we blessed God for his work in these families lives and we wished them the best in what ever way that may be.
