Haiti ‘12 Update #7

Haiti ‘12 Update #7

Today, Bill and JoEllen took us to the Good Shepherd orphanage to love on the kids there. With a full vehicle and overflowing hearts we drove the 45 minutes to the orphanage. Upon arrival nobody could believe that the 15’x30′, one-room, tumbledown building with inches of dirt on the floor was where these children were living. Although we did not see the one other room they also use, it was in-fact what the 25 kids called home. It was so humbling to watch the kids smile as we put on our production of “Jonah and the Whale” as if they didn’t care what extreme squalor they were living in. They build their lives on the fact the Jesus loves them and nothing else matters. Their faith is so beautiful and pure that all you can do is love them and pray that someday you will be able to emulate their innocent, worry-free, and doubtless hearts.

      I miss you too! You wouldn’t believe half of the things that I am experiencing. The kids in the village of La Digue right outside of the compound are so friendly that when its time for them to go home you can barely pull them off of you. The food is delicious too! Mango, bananas, plantains among others all grow naturally here and let me tell you, you haven’t had mango till you’ve tried one in Haiti. Oh! And its also REALLY hot! I have so many more stories but I have to save them for in person. 🙂 Thank everyone for the prayers for me and tell Papa I love him.
