Haiti Day 3- 12-29-10
Happy Birthday Stephen! Today is stephen's 21st birthday and he celebrated in style in Haiti! We have a party scheduled for Sunday after church. It was a beautiful day in Haiti today. Our day started off early again. Up with the sun and out of the house not too far behind. We picked up 6 of the older boys and 2 ladies to take with us to Marotierre. The ladies prepared our lunch and the boys helped with the work. The walk to the school was really foggy and we could barely see 10 ft in front of us. When we got to the school we immediately got to work painting. Some of us continued To paint the ceiling while others started sanding the walls and then started cutting in the wall color. It was a long and tedious process but by the end of the day the hall and 8 classrooms were finished cutting in and 3.5 of them had been rolled with paint. Our arms are sore but we were very happy with the work that was accomplished. And we got to know some of the boys better. The highlight of the day was painting rooms and hearing the voices of Haitians and Americans singing praises as they worked. After we finished work we had to clean up. Cleaning rollers and brushes without running water is difficult. It truly makes us appreciate what we have been blessed with. All in all it had been a great day. We are ending the day by singing worship songs lead by clay. God is good and is being praised in this place! Please continue to pray.
Pray for rest and for our soreness. Pray for friday night as we get to celebrate the end of 40 days of prayer in our church here with 6+ hours of praise, worship, drama and preaching to ring in the new year.
