Sand Diego Group Was Great!

Well, after flying the "Red Eye" from LA all night and arriving in Haiti the next morning the San Diego group was ready to go! And go they did! They loved on the kids with hearts of angels, they painted, stained, cleaned and organized. They were a great group that is welcome here anytime they choose to come back! The group was led by co-leaders Diane and Nathan. The rest of the group included David, Shon, Kellyn, Genisee and Teale. They were not upset when they had to all get in the truck for a crowded drive back to Port-Au-Prince. Michelle and Jo took them back and stayed for much needed shopping. Thanks guys, for a great week that was truly a great blessing to us and the kids! We look forward to next year. Passe bon anne (have a great year!) Drex, Jo and Michelle

Well! Another great group has come and gone! This group consisted of Jean, Ruth, Katie, Lori, Carissa, Matt and Vince from the Methodist Church, Mountain View, Arkansas, along with two "old timers", Lisa and Becky from Hall Street Baptist Church, Owensboro, Kentucky. They played hard with the kids and worked hard building beds, table and benches, scrubbing the outside of the main building,as well as doing a great VBS for the kids. They also thrilled the church on Sunday morning with two great specials. Vince, who has played music professionally for years, played a "mean" guitar with the group and the interludes he played were terrific. Thanks, guys, for a fantastic week and we hope you can visit us again next year!!! By the way Vince, you should know the table would hold you, you helped Matt and Drex build it!!
