We had another early start today. We woke up for breakfast at 4:30 in order to catch our flight to Ferrier. The flight was quite an experience for us but it got us there and back so we are grateful we were able to fly to visit the girls!
After a very warm welcome from the Ferrier girls home, we took a walk to check out other projects Together for Haiti has going on. The first stop was the Ferrier church. Pastor Jean Aix told us the history of the church and how the Lord has made it a beacon of light in a very spiritually dark place.
Next we saw the Kindergarten and Primary School. Although school is out for the summer, there were some summer lessons going on so we were able to get a glimpse of the work that is done there.
Then, we went to visit Rosena, a dear friend and one of the first children who grew up in the children's home. She is currently the Director at the Ferrier Village, a compound with family style homes for vulnerable children. It is wonderful to see her worship the Lord by serving "the least of these". What a testimony!

After we landed (safely) we started the drive back to the mission center. We were stuck in Friday afternoon traffic for what seemed like forever but finally made it up the mountain to our temporary home. After another delicious dinner, we all headed to bed. Traveling is exhausting!
Please continue to pray for us. We are seeing a big picture of what the Lord is doing through Together for Haiti. We love seeing how He is working in so many areas and are excited to see where the Lord will use Hope for the Hungry to be His hands and feet. Join us?
