Total Immersion — Day 5

Saturday is always a market day in Haiti. So before we got up there were the typical noises of a market day in progress! We had to go see for ourselves, of course!

It seems like everyone is selling about the same thing. The smells are very interesting!

Work on the church addition was going strong again. It was so interesting to watch how they build the rock foundations. It was basically a lot of cement mixing, rock carrying and skillful rock stacking! Grant decided to get into the action today.

The entire foundation for the church addition was completed by the time we left.

We had been given a nice size stack of pillowcase dresses to give away, and we had also shipped down buckets of bagged rice pilaf from Ohio…so we brought one of those. Madam Pasté knew who needed these things so we saw some smiles as they were distributed through the week.

This was the sweetest girl, and we have special thoughts and prayers for her.

A smile is worth a million words! Thank you for sharing!

A picture is worth a thousands words! Thank you for sharing your talents to clothe a child!

There was even a small pillowcase dress for the little girl they all called "Baby!"
