Today was a flurry of activity. We started the day with VBS at one of the local Haitian churches. It was full of songs, skits, crafts, teaching, games and of course plenty of snacks! But the real gift of the day was the Hatian kids. They deeply impacted our team with their level of joy and their willingness to share so much of the so very little they have. Tonight's team time was extremely good as our students tried to process some of the emotion associated with witnessing deep poverty first hand.
After out return to camp we did a bunch of projects for ALC and guess what parents...your kids CAN WORK HARD, but don't tell them you found that out from me. They moved brush, floor tiles, cleaned nastiness from fences, planted cocunut trees (yep, you read that right) and a bunch of other stuff.
The team has a real love for the game of getting the coconuts down from the tree...it's highly amusing and has proven to have a sweet reward multiple times!
