After breakfast we took a walk through the town and out to the river. It was hot, but better wherever we found shady spots to stop. It was nice to just get away and be together as a family!
When we returned, we sat on the front porch, studying, working on the computer, etc. Soon, no matter what we started to do, the Haitians were right there at our elbows. If you tried to study the Bible, you would turn your head and one would show up next to you. They were very interested in what we were doing and especially interested in wanting to learn English. We had English/Creole studies more than a couple of times. We enjoyed teaching each other! We loved interacting and developing relationships with all ages. God created language!
After lunch, we sat on the porch with the Haitians. We got the game “Zingo” out for the kids to play. It is a Bingo type game that uses pictures. The kids loved it! Trinity was playing the game with them but they were wild. It was hard for them to sit and play a game. We worked with Haitians on English again all through the afternoon.
We ended up showing half of the “Jesus” film one night and half the following night. Several of us had to go into town and “talk it up” as we invited people to come! We love to see and hear the people’s reactions as they follow the life of Christ through his early ministry to his death and resurrection. It touched people every time! We hope we can plant seeds for eternity as we share the life and word of Jesus together.
