Hi Aleah and Abby coming to you live from Delmas Haiti. Yesterday we visited our sponsored elders. It was a very eye opening experience, especially for Aleah because it was her first time. Seeing the elders homes was interesting because its very different from back home. One was made out of just tarp for the walls, and some wood pillars for support. Although they had so little they greeted us with such respect and there biggest smile. One of the biggest smiles that I remember was two elder sisters that both had knee pain, so we let them keep muscle cream to help with the pain. They were so grateful for something so simple. It made me think how something so small could make such a big impact on someone, and the saying "Its the little things in life that count" applies not only to the sisters but to us as well. When visiting elders we also played around with some neighborhood kids. We brought bubbles, jump ropes, balloons, and nail polish. we not only put a smile on the kids face but the elders were laughing and having a fun time too. From washing the elders feet to giving them massages and praying over them. Overall it experience and something that I will never forget.
~Sincerely Aleah and Abby
