Haiti Day Three (Monday) Part 2

We finished up our time at the school, ate our PB&J’s for lunch, loaded back onto the bus and headed to Hope for the Children orphanage to spend another afternoon with the kids there. As I mentioned in my Day Two post, I had decided to sponsor a little girl named Minerva. We didn’t know which child she was, so we were anxious to meet her as we returned to the orphanage today! We asked around for her and quickly found her. I was excited to find out that we had made a connection with this little girl the day before….she was the sweet, little one that had been singing in my ear! How cool that the Lord gave us that connection before we even knew that she would be our sponsor child!

Each of the girls received a dress that was made by some ladies in our church.  They loved them!

Lots of the children would come up to us with pictures of their sponsor families and ask if we knew them.  This boy asked me to take a picture of him with his pictures to give to his family.

We had a busy afternoon of teaching the children bible stories, singing, doing crafts and just spending time together. Then we loaded up and headed back to the Guest House. We ate dinner, had our evening meeting and called it a night. Unfortunately, this was the night when I first began to suspect that I had a kidney stone. Not much sleep for me (or Emilie) this night. 😦

Coming up….Day 4!

Trusting His Plan,
