Today was our last day in Haiti. We start the journey home very early in the morning.
We had a relaxing day compared to the others. We took our time getting out of the house after breakfast, went souvenir shopping, and headed to the boys home. It was a great way to end the trip. We ate a great meal with the boys and staff at the home. After lunch was eaten and cleaned up, we got to hand out all of the shoes and backpacks to the boys. It was the sweetest time! Our newest boy, Erick, has never been with us during a shoe pass out time. We started calling some of the boys names and once he saw what was happening he ran up to the front of the room, almost on top of the suitcase just waiting for his name to be called. When it finally was... man, that smile! It was great to see him laugh and be excited about something as simple as a pair of shoes and a backpack.
After the boys received their gifts, they all walked around thanking everyone and letting us know how much they loved the gifts. Such great memories!
When we were done we had to say goodbye and go back to the pastors house. On our way out, we had a little bit of a problem getting our two vans out of a very wet and muddy road from the freak summer storm.
Pray that we will get good rest tomorrow and that we will have a safe and uneventful trip home. Thanks for serving alongside us this week.
