We started out the day going to Jarad and Jalayne’s church. It was great to worship with our Haitian brothers and sisters in Christ. We were warmly welcomed, and even heard an English rendition of “This is the Air I Breathe,” which was the beginning and end of what we understood in the service!
After lunch, we gathered about half of the supplies we brought down, and loaded up the truck to distribute the items. We gave some of the tarps to a local Doctor who provides services to a tent community. The tarps will be used to cover the ground inside the tents which is now very muddy after every rain. We were able to walk around the community and meet some of the people living there. Many of those living in the community had lost their homes in the earthquake, but others are living there due to intense fear of staying indoors.
The other donations were brought to a church in City Soleil where they will be further distributed as needed. As soon as we pulled in front of the church we were swarmed by children giving us thumbs up and fist bumps. We spent time playing with the kids and holding them. Each person had at least three kids hanging on them or jumping on them at any given time! It was awesome to show love to these kids.
