Here are photos of some amazing things we think are sort of unique to Haiti! What do you think?

Mud cookies, 1/2¢ each, are a mixture of mud, cornmeal and salt. The sad reality is this is the only affordable food for some families. It's sort of like eating a piece of pottery.

  1. We always enjoy your posts:) The mud cookies look like a challenge to eat. The toilets reminded us of our time in Japan. While toilet seats provide more comfort, the squat is probably more sanitary. Looks like we in the US could learn more about sharing His Word.

  2. Continued prayers for your ministry! Peace and love from the Norris family!!
