- Hello Family & Friends!
We had a relaxing morning until leaving for church. We attended service a Port-Au-Prince Fellowship. It was wonderful to worship with the local community where we have been serving; amazing to know we worship the same God, although we live worlds apart. This Fellowship also includes a school, where a new generation is being educated, which translates to hope for the future of Haiti.
We then enjoyed a beautiful ride in our Tap Tap up into the mountains. Three cheers again for our amazing driver, Rinelle, who navigated winding narrow roads. It was amazing to feel the temperature change as we ascended! In stark contrast to the sights, sounds, and smells of crowded Cite Soleil, we soaked in the simple beauty that God created here - the lush trees and fresh air. The view overlooking the city and ports were breathtaking. It was heartwarming to see another side of Haiti - truly a beautiful country. We enjoyed a great meal at an open air restaurant, overlooking the city. Shopping for metal art, jewelry, and artworks made by Haitians ended our visit here.
Our team discussed our amazing week at dinner - all that we have seen and done, and the vast array of feelings we have experienced during this life-changing trip. The difference in perspectives between day 1 to now is incredible. As we prepare to return to our privileged, comfortable lives at home, we are so very thankful for the opportunity to have served these lovely people and grow in our faith. God is so very good!
