We went back to the TapTap and resumed our journey to find Ophane. A short distance down the road we found Ophane and his goats. I was exceedingly pleased to find that Ophane recognized me. We embraced and laughed and I spoke the only Creole I know, Bondye Beniou, which means God Bless You. We went inside where Ophane and his sister received our blessing of washing and lotion. I did his feet and hands while teammate Brian did his shoulders. Ophane cried. Teammates Karen and Jolene cared for his sister in the same way. I asked the interpreter to tell Ophane that I still think his goats are better looking the he. Ophane laughed heartily. Our last step is to pray over them. Teammate Lisa said a very wonderful and appropriate prayer for and about them. They both cried and many of the team joined them.
It was a beautiful experience for them and for the team.
