They enter each new experience excited to help out and willing to learn about the Haitian culture. The team painted a house alongside the new home owners before visiting one of Haiti’s greatest hidden treasures. An unique opportunity at a neighbor’s home polished off a fulfilling day.

Friday Day 2 in Haiti
Today we had the opportunity, through Keith and his family’s sponsor child, to paint a house alongside the family we were working for. We started around 8am after watching Keith break out sweating opening paint cans. The house was a short distance from the compound, essentially directly across from where we are staying. The house was painted blue and brown on the outside and baby blue color for the interior. It was super cool to work alongside some of the local kids and neighbors, even though they didn’t really speak any English. They came and grabbed some brushes and we were done in no time, before lunch.
Because we know you care,
