Today was a busy day for our group! After breakfast and our morning devotional we started our day with the first water stop! With our truck, full and ready with water, we were excited to start serving. Those who needed water would form a line in the back of our water truck and would have their buckets ready to go! This water come only a few times a week, sometimes less, and this is such a blessing for the people of Cite Soleil. There are so many children at each stop that want hugs, to be carried and just to have our attention!
After our first stop, we were able to tour and see the progress of Grace Church, and it was even more beautiful than we remembered it! Our co-leader Kathy was able to give us some amazing facts and stories behind the church itself, and we were even able to meet some of the kindergarten students who attend school within the church. They were so happy to see us and eager to come over and say hello.
Our second water stop wasn’t too far away from Grace Church and it is a stop that knows Healing Haiti and its mission well. Everyone was there with open hearts and immediately wanted to get to know us and talk about where we were from, what our names were, and introduce us to those around them. It was so amazing getting to meet these people and serve them as God intended us to.
Our third water truck stop was located next to a pier and was right off the water, which was amazing to see. We were able to witness fisherman, basket weavers and even some neighborhood children swimming! Once we made our way to where we would be delivering water, we could start to see the line of buckets forming waiting for us. We immediately began filling each bucket and loving on the kids that were around us.
