The Waibel’s visit Sucrerie Henry, the school they sponsor!

We had a really neat thing happen recently when our long-time friends Brian and Wendy Waibel (and daughter Addie, Champaign, IL) visited us. They requested a visit to the school they sponsor and this was a first-time experience for us!

The entire school was waiting for our arrival and the kids jumped up and down as we pulled up! We had time to take lots of pictures, pass out gifts and watch the kids play games at recess and shoot off rocket balloons after school!

The pastor and his wife prepared a huge Haitian meal and we crowded around their dining room table to enjoy it. It was a blessing to spend those moments together and to hopefully encourage that school by their visit. It was a day well spent.

Bible story books were shared with each child!

Sharing something special without words!

Enjoying a traditional Haitian meal!

Rocket balloons were a big hit!

Some unforgettable moments with the kids!

We found lots of other things to do with the Waibel’s who were visiting for the first time! We showed them favorite beaches, a waterfall we enjoy, markets and stores, and let them experience tastes of Haiti too. We were blessed to worship in a Haitian church and hear familiar hymns. We were thankful for their visit which was a great support!

Another wonderful blessing was to match them with a local girl who needed help going to school. We were able to visit her family at their home one evening. After all the new things we did, Addie said this was her favorite part of the trip!

After all the Haitian food, we had to have pizza too!

A Haitian church visit on Sunday was a must!

Cooling off a bit too much here!

A visit to the Domestic Center was interesting!

The trip highlight was visiting the Waibel’s sponsored child and her family at their home!
