S: ayiti - summer 2010
BC: au revoir, ayiti Bon Dieu beni'w
1: 12 january 2010. early in the morning. the earth shook and haiti crumbled. a few days later, i knew in my heart i'd be there before long, to serve in what small way i could.
5: beauty, rubble, trash, despair, hope...many sights are seen on the streets of port-au-prince. every step out our front door was an adventure in some capacity.
6: a lovely day of work meeting with ministry contacts ended with a cruise in the bay to an island. only in ayiti!
7: Pastor Wilnord's school and church in Carrefour became one of our team locations. He is a blessed man of God.
8: rubble removal
13: days of ministry could include medical clinics for people with no money for doctors. often the few meds and skills our teams brought were all they'd seen in weeks or months. prayer became a huge part of such days as well.
18: Haitian Christians hold hours-long prayer services almost daily at the home of Pastor David. Their passion ignites souls as they sing and cry out to God each day for their community and their country.
22: our 4th of July celebration included all-American hot dogs (with fake cheese) & FIREWORKS...which turned into a rooftop explosion fiasco in which no one was harmed but much fun was had by all. oh what a night!
24: go, go, go, fernando! go, go, go, fernando! | a day off at Wahoo Bay - pure enjoyment featuring a rowboat to "snorkel" with a beatboxing haitian and some loco spaniards... best. memory. ever.
30: a-roo-cha-cha | "teaching" English to random kids in a church... unplanned. two hours.
31: up on the balcony overlooking the sea
35: memories like strips of negatives, frozen in time
42: tent city
50: my final story: visiting Carl's tent city on a rainy day
