A new day brought new challenges for the team. The biggest lesson learned today was probably patience. It seems that nothing in Haiti happens quickly. Whether it be what should be a 45 minute errand or hanging a new door on the school, even the smallest tasks take much more time than most Americans are used to.
Today the team split up again….this time in at least three groups. One team made up of the men worked on the school addition. Time was spent putting doors on the latrines for the children, as well as working on the gutters which will collect rain water for the cistern.
Yet another team began work on what will be a new nursery for the smallest of the children. Walls were scrubbed and primed for the new paint, and one wall was painted a sunshiny yellow.
The last team worked on preparation for the medical clinic which will be held on the CBCH grounds tomorrow. Plans are to see many patients from the area beginning at 9am.
One thing becomes very clear—although we may come from very different backgrounds, and possess different talents~~all the talents are needed to do God’s work here. God chose this team for this week for a specific purpose. Please continue in prayer for us all as we seek to fulfill God’s perfect will this week.
