Team Day One

A very nice day with a slight wind, big fluffy white clouds and lots of sunshine.

The team enjoyed breakfast and I think everyone slept well.

Helps after traveling a couple of days that makes one very tired.

Cory showed the the school and then called me when they headed over to clinic.

On the way we stopped in the big depo [storage barn] and looked at the stuff in it.

At least one of the new nurses reported she did not realize any medical supplies had been stored there.


  • Sort through the boxes.
    • Identify the supplies that could be used
      • Sort
      • Clean
      • Rebox
      •  and move over to clinic where the nurse can sort, organize and store
    • Dump the bad stuff
    • Clean the depo in preparation for storing the Konsey II books

The morning's project occupied most of us.

We did not complete the job but sent a pick-up truck's worth of supplies down to clinic and at least a second truck's worth to the dump.

Office work, school and some Bible school preparations also occurred before lunch.

This afternoon the team met with the Fauche children on campus.

Per normal there were about 20 kids on time at 3 p.m. but an hour later a few were still arriving and the numbers were close to 100.

The story for the day with puppets covered David and Goliath.

The normal Haitian leaders review the story after the team to make sure everyone understood.

They learned Hebrews 13:6. So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?"

Action songs like Father Abraham and head,shoulders, knees & toes....always a big hit.

Everyone left with a sticker and a paper with the verse in Creole.

Tonight supper will be traditional Haitian pumpkin soup and some rice & beans left from yesterday.

The coconut candy topped off our lunch of spaghetti and coleslaw.

Good first day. Thanks for the prayers.
