The best part of the trip occurred near the middle when a large pod of dolphins jumped along both sides of the ferry. Eli and Anna do not remember seeing them before when they were little, and we rarely saw them when we lived on LaGonave and crossed more often.
They will not be returning to Haiti. Thankful to connect once more with these dear folks as we were here in 2007 when they came on their first short term team trip.
LaGonave will miss them.
Saturday Cory met with WISH and Starfysh to discuss and make future plans for the agricultural work.
A good meeting and with a plan in hand Cory and WISH folks will meet briefly with the local staff tomorrow morning to let them know about some changes.
Nice to see some beds and equipment in the new hospital but would be better to see it being used. Please continue to pray for this transition.
Visiting the old hospital to greet friends I noted that almost every bed contained a patient.
Many people suffering from a new mosquito born virus that causes high fevers and joint pain.
Eli and Anna spent as much time as possible the last few days with the boys, enjoying spending time with ex-patriate children their ages.
Always good to return and see some of our friends again. Today after church and saying good-byes we watched some of the groups performing for Haiti's Flag Day.
Also nice to see new improvements and changes like the transformation of the old guest house into pharmacy storage.
Tomorrow will join the other missionaries, a few from headquarters, and some child care workers for retreat.
