We were privileged to have a team from the Bella Vista Church in Michigan. We also had two World Team missionary families join the group out on the job site.
There wasn’t an empty chair left in this small church. Excited for the growth that can take place now that they have a bigger church building!
Sunday afternoon while we were visiting the shut-ins, we stopped to visit this gentleman. He has been sick for four months. His caretaker was telling me how he throws up whatever he tries to eat or drink. It was heartbreaking to see an adult who is skin and bones like this man was.
Bath time! This mother said she has six children…and they all looked under the age of eight! This family was right across the road from where we stayed.
Who couldn’t love these beautiful Haitian children?! She was all smiles as she rolled around in the grass with her friend.
Hard at work!
After the 20 benches were built, it was on to sanding! The Haitian were eager to help.
The walls of this church were not even close to being straight or level. However, it looked great after the roof was on…regardless of the crooked walls!
Before we left to head back to Cayes, Anne(a member of the team) hosted a womens ministry for the ladies of the church. Since Anne grew up in Haiti and is fluent in Creole, she was able to speak right to the women without an interpreter. It was a huge blessing to them!
After the message, we did a small craft with the ladies. A fan made of two cards glued together with a tongue depressor in the middle.
Done! The community of Maroulette now has a new roof.
This group was our last work team for this season. Looking back, our team here is thankful for the strength and protection God has provided during this season. We are thankful for all the hard work that was accomplished, but more importantly, we are praying hearts were touched and changed for the kingdom. Only the Lord knows and only the Lord can add the increase!
