Except for Sundays, this is how jammed the roads can be with bikes, day and night!

Having a bike is really important in Haiti. It is how you and your friends get around. We have seen up to four people on one! There are 3x more bikes on the road here at a given time than automobiles!

We want to thank all of you who donated bikes this summer. They were given to kids that have a distance to go to school. One boy was walking seven miles each way! There were some really grateful smiles when we decided who the new owners of each bike would be!

Sanio is a special family friend. He got a bike to go to college downtown. He also got a suitcase as a new dresser!

We heard this about one of the donated bikes: “I take it to school, and when I get home my mom takes it to the market. When she returns my brother takes it to the place he sleeps overnight, and then he returns it in the morning so I can go to school!” It was great to hear that the whole family was using it, so thanks again!

The blind beggar and his son come by several times a week. The boy got Grace's old bike on his last visit!

“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” – Colossians 3:17
