The days are going by so fast, and I'm so thankful that I'm not burnt! (Thankful for SPF 60). We started our day here with devotions on the roof and MASSIVE pancakes that were so filling that I could only eat one. And because I am a coffee lover, I just have to say that Haitian coffee beats Tim Hortons or Starbucks. After breakfast we continued painting the tech school. It's been such a blessing to work together as a team and to find joy in the work that we do together. Every morning we've been excited to work and serve and the times that we get to work all together as a team are the best. Those times are filled with laughter, jokes, and smiles, all while doing the work of the Lord.
When the elementary school had recess we took a break from working and spent time playing with the children. It was so much fun to run and play with them, we played some game called "Chase", where all you all you really do is run. We ran and sweat a lot, but it was so worth it to see the smiles on the kids faces. VBS went amazing, we were so blessed to have translators that love the kids so much, they got them so pumped up for our skit, it was so much fun. We laughed so much during our skit, and the kids did too, we acted out Jesus calling Peter to walk on water. The kids listened so well during VBS that the whole team agreed that each day has been getting so much better. This is definitely not our own efforts, but the work of the Lord. We are both relieved and a little sad that it was our last day of VBS, but we will still have many oppurtunities to spend time with the kids.
We are going to be having Saturday and Sunday off to spend time together as a team and to experience the market as well as the beach. I'm pretty excited because I've only seen the ocean once before and I don't remember it at all, so it'll be pretty exciting. We're also going to a restaraunt Sunday evening and it'll be a new experience for all of our team. It'll be so good to have these next couple days just to spend time together fellowshipping and enjoying eachother's company. Be praying that we get rest in these next few days for the work that is ahead of us in the next week and that the Lord would continue to bless our time here.
Peace out from Grand Goave,
