The Newton Church of the Way team has been a tremendous blessing to the MH4H ministry as they help with several large projects around campus. Thank you and great job to the team! The team members also shared an enjoyable evening with the community. Keep reading to follow the events of the day!
We’ve had a good first few days here in this beautiful countryside of Pignon. We started the day by joining the MH4H staff for their regular morning devotions. We attempted to sing along with a Creole song and joined in an amazing group prayer session. We all introduced ourselves and took the time to learn little about each of them as they did us. It was a truly welcoming and great experience that was capped with hugging and saying “Bonjou” (Have a good day) to everyone. The value placed on creating community and really listening to your neighbor is a great thing we hope to take back with us. We all reflected back on it at the end of the day as being a highlight of our experience so far.
Creole lessons soon after landing in Haiti
During the day were able to help with some projects on the MH4H campus. One group painted an apartment, furniture, and bathrooms, one helped to build some new prayer benches, and the third group assisted with making some new chairs and shelving for the school. We worked hard all day and were able to accomplish a good amount before dinner.
We have had so many great moments so far it’s hard to share it all now, so we will close with this: Bon Nwit. Dòmi Byen. (Good night and sleep well.)
