Work Day #3 was an easy one. We only worked half a day because we were finishing all of the rooms today. We put the final touches on what we could and now every room that was ready to be painted was!
It was another day of spending time with our Haitian friends. Our older boys helped out a ton today. Some would even just come and take the brush out of our hand... I am so thankful that they have been around this week. It's been so positive to see them learning different "trades". They have been measuring and cutting cabinets, doing masonry, concrete and tile work, and of course painting.
During these days, they have been able to see how what they're learning in school actually translates into real world settings. It has given them a taste of what life could look like after they finish school and see what fits them better if university isn't in the cards for them.
Once we finished our painting work, we helped sift sand to mix into the concrete for the ceilings and walls. It is a lot of work but is an important job.
When we filled up one of the wheelbarrows, they brought out another one that didn't have legs or wheels. It quickly became a "taxi" for everyone.
After lunch, we headed to the Baptist Mission for some souvenir shopping and ice cream. We've been hanging out at our Pastor's home since.
We are about to be on our way to a New Years Celebration service at the Agape church in Petionville. This is a 4 hour service that ends at midnight tonight, so we will be singing and dancing in the New Year!
That being said:
Bonne Anne!! (HAPPY NEW YEAR!)
