Day # 8. The sun just broke through the “booyah”, fog of low clouds that have surrounded us since we woke up this morning.
I have not seen yet a jump in Haiti’s cases so we remain at 8 but this number will be increasing at any time.
Markets are to be shut down tomorrow. While this makes sense to encourage and improve social distancing, most Haitians visit markets to buy food for their next meal as storage in homes are limited and no refrigeration.
This, along with the border to the Dominican shut will worsen the hunger already being experienced by millions in Haiti.
In Délice preparations for the rains continue, with Cory’s guys taking time off to plant their crops.
We are also preparing for rain by working to seal more of the small cracks on the outside walls by painting with a cement based coating.
We continue to work on Fritzlin’s schoolwork, saving his reading time for when we are working together. This entertains us all.
I’v made a few masks, then modified my pattern based on a friend’s recommendations.
I asked the neighbor kids to braid some ties as my sewing machine is limping along and making 4 ties per mask may limit how many we can make.
We still hear a few planes overhead during the day. Americans and other foreigners continue to leave and we know of at least one flight to France today.
Yesterday morning we were one of the 83 sites that logged into a zoom- Global Partner’s devotional / prayer time, encouraged by words of encouragement and time of prayer.
Thank you to those who are praying for us. Praying for peace and courage in our Lord during these difficult times.
Eli and Anna report doing well and are keeping each other entertained.
Praying for the tech to come to Grandparent's house today to increase bandwidth so that Anna can better connect for classes next week, as she's on spring break this week.
