Today we traveled into Cite Soleil to deliver life giving water to people who do not have access to clean drinking water. Our team met our water truck and got out ready to serve. The lines for water were long, we were at both stops for about 45 minutes each. There was lots of work to be done... holding the water hose and filling up water containers, carrying buckets down the street to ease some of the burden of the women and children carrying them, and holding or playing with the children. We stopped at two neighborhoods today, it was hot but we were so happy to be put to work.
It isn't often that I have the opportunity to blog any longer as we (as leaders) encourage team members to write about the day. But, tonight I had the chance.
We have such an amazing group of people here in Haiti with us. I am simply humbled to be here with this group. It is so wonderful to see Haiti through the eyes of a new goer. It brings me back to my first trip and I can still feel the very raw emotions I had. The experiences of each day are etched in my memory to never ever be forgotten. I love Haiti and I love being with people who are seeing it for the first time.
We have a wonderful group of "veteran" goers. Please who have been part of Healing Haiti for many many years. People who have given their time and hearts to fearlessly lead the way to help this organization become what it is today.
Our team is full of return goers, people who come back year after year to continue being the hands and feet of Christ. It is such an honor to be here and to serve alongside this amazing group of people.
Please pray for Haiti. Please pray for the Haitian people. Please pray for the Haitian government. Please pray for Healing Haiti. Pray.....
Peace - Marni
