The Pella Christian Winterim team did not stray far from the campus today. Instead, they spent the day close to home learning about the ministry of Many Hands. The young people also participated in several hands-on culture experiences to understand more of life in Haiti. Keep reading to live their day with them.

Monday Day 5 in Haiti
We started today off with having devotions with the Many Hands for Haiti staff. The pastor was there from church on Sunday, and we sang a song with them in Creole. It was so fun to talk to the staff members, and they were so happy we were here. After devotions, we split into two groups. One group went through the prayer walk, and the other walked with 5 gallon buckets full of water. We only carried one bucket but we talked a lot about how the Haitians had to carry so much more than that every day.
After lunch, we learned about the history of Haiti. It was very interesting to learn about how Haiti came to be today. It was also very sad to learn how it has become the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
Because we think you care,
