Yesterday we were unable to post to the blog due to internet problems. The cause of the problems is still unknown but we gave Eric a hard time about it anyway. So this post will cover yesterday and today.
We headed back to the work sight yesterday. The work was concentrated on the inside of the building we had been working on. It was amazing to watch the workers finish the concrete work inside. The ceiling and beams had a silky smooth surface by the end of the day.
We took some break time to walk down to the church and take some pictures. On the way back some children seemed to come out of know where to hold our hands and give big hugs to the ladies in the group. A man who owned “three beautiful boats” offered to take us to a “pretty beach”. It was tempting but we declined. It didn’t seem fair with all of Kansas City facing snow (sorry about that).
Today we got up and headed back to Port-au-Prince. We were able to head up to the Baptist Missionary for lunch. The view was incredible and it was actually a little cool, probably about 70 degrees (sorry again about the snow). The food was a nice change of pace with sandwiches, hamburgers, fries and pizza on the menu. We spent some time in their gift shop and with the vendors outside.
Next we headed to the “over look”. We had a fantastic view of Port-au-Prince from there. It was a little cloudy, but still picturesque. It was so quiet from where we looked down on a huge city that we knew was so loud.
We headed back to the guest house where we ate dinner and talked about our trip. We are struggling to find any suggestions on what to do differently with future groups. The week was amazing for all. We all feel blessed to have had this opportunity.–Bryan
