It has been an amazing day! Today we taught the kids about David and Goliath and how God can use us in big and small ways. We start each day with an assembly, and today's lasted almost 2 hours, because we were on a roll with singing and learning scripture.
Our kinder class which has over 60 kids broke off and did their own thing today with Shelby and Ruth. They had a lot of singing and dancing and then split up into rotations through the different crafts and games. Our Haitian friends are really helping with this class and are pouring into these kiddos.
The older kids worked through the same schedule as yesterday, starting with assembly time then to their classes. Class time is shared with Haitian teachers and Americans rotating through. I wish I could put into words how great it is to see each of these kids and classes thriving and seeing our Haitian partners pour into the kids. They are the ones that will stay and continue the growth in these kiddos and it is so great to see them lead out.
Our VBS had well over 300 kids today.
After VBS we have been hanging out with our friends here. We are getting to know our friends from the Agape church in Petionville, and playing with all the boys from the home.
We had a big rainstorm hit this afternoon, which means wherever you were when it started is where you stay. So we were all spread out. Some were hanging out in the boys home, others in the dorm with the agape church, and one lucky one in the school kitchen helping wash dishes. We all loved it and it was great just to be in Haiti and to be with those we were with.
Today marks the half way point of our trip. Time is flying by, but we don't want to miss out on anything. We are making the most of everything. Praying everywhere we go. And trying to share Jesus in any way possible, through serving, smiling, dancing, playing soccer, washing dishes, and anything else that comes our way.
Tomorrow is a big day, as we will be passing out the shoes and backpacks we brought for the boys. It is such a fun time to get to celebrate and pray with them for this next year.
Pray for our VBS and that it would continue to go well and the kids would understand the truths we are sharing.
Pray for our boys who will receive their backpacks and shoes tomorrow, that they will know they are loved and prayed for by so many.
Pray for us as we are loving our time here and connecting with so many people.
