After the assembly time we broke into our classes and spent the rest of the day in our classrooms. During this time we became very familiar with the word "blanc". This is the Haitian word for white, and when they didn't know our name then blanc is the go to. Hopefully after today they will start learning names, but I think we will always respond to blanc.
Each of our classes also had a church volunteer or two. These guys were awesome and have given up their week to come and help us lead out. They are helping to drive home the scriptures and are making sure these kids understand and comprehend the truths we will teach.
All in all it was a great first day. The kids, teachers and volunteers are really buying in and we are eager to see where this week takes us. The rest of the day was spent making some changes and preparations for tomorrow. We were able to just hang out at the girls home. We are helping with homework, cooking and cleaning, letting our hair be played with, and learning the latest Haitian dance craze.
Continue to pray for us as we serve this week. Pray for our classes and the sweet faces we get to work with each day. Pray for the truth of scripture to be known and understood.
