Good weekend. Church pews full. Pastor Emmanuel back home. Praying for my folks and the team. Folks and Angie to try to fly out of Grand Rapids, MI tomorrow [below 0 temps and 80% chance of snow.] Plan 'A' is for them to met Gene and Gerda in FL and fly into Cap Haitian early on Wed. morning. Lord knows.
…Fauche, us! I was watching them give prizes out, trying to get pictures when they called out, “And for the foreigner, Anna.”
I went forward and received my present, lots of my friends asked me what I had gotten but I refused to open mine up until Christmas Day.
After they had given out all the presents I was heading toward the truck when Jean Pierre told me to get into a red car instead.
I was told to get into to the back seat. I squeezed in, on my right was a little girl sitting on the lap of a lady. I ended up with a little girl sit on my lap too. To my left there was a little boy sitting on a little boy, and next to them there was a little boy sitting next to a little girl, also siting on a girl.
In the back alone, there were NINE PEOPLE! Sure some of them were little but still.
During the long ride back, some of the younger kids fell asleep and I tried to so that I wouldn’t fell my sore legs and feet or my very sore bum.
Whenever I was almost asleep something would wake me, like the other girl asking me if I was asleep.
When we finally stopped outside of campus I was very happy when most of the people got out and I was able to take the kid off of me and set her next to me.
The driver drove right into my front yard, I was very happy to be home having left for about twelve hours. I was also very happy to take my tennis shoes off and join my family.
PS :The present turned out to be a puzzle, for little kids.
