I had the opportunity to celebrate my birthday in Haiti. My wonderful team surprised me in the evening with yummy cupcakes (made specially by Cam and Kim!!) and ice cream! My cupcake was beautifully decorated by Mischa, Mark and Lisa's daughter. Today, our team enjoyed another early sunrise in beautiful and very hot Haiti. The morning started with painting in the childrens village with beautiful bright colors! Turquiose and orange outside walls, lime green in the living room - absolutely amazing choices. Others on the team were busy working at building shelves, tiling and electrical work. In the late afternoon we finished up early and walked around the community to visit the haitians and offer our prayers for them. My favorite memory was visiting an older lady that we had brought some parts to for her wheel chair. We talked to her for a bit and she had mentioned she would like to attend the church service more but couldn't make it since she needed assistance to get there and didnt have anyone that could help. Aaron offereded for us to come and get her this coming Sunday to bring her to the service, it was wonderful to see her face light up and smile so bright. it was a very special day and so nice to walk around and visit with the Haitians.
