Hello everyone! This is Kathy. Today was another beautiful day here in Haiti. This morning we went to church early around 8:30am. Church is over here before our church even starts in America! The pastor seems very sincere and expresses such a heart for the spiritual growth of the Haitan people. Some of the songs they sang in their language were hymns I recognized from home. Hymns like "There is a fountain" and "Holy, holy, holy". It was neat to be able to sing together and worship God in our own languages. It poured during part of the service and the rain on the tin roof made it difficult to hear for a time. But the sun came out and the ground was dry even before we left the church. The sun here is incredibly hot!
We took in the beach today after having lunch with the missionaries that work here. It was wonderful to spend a Sunday afternoon socializing and relaxing in the sun. Some of us even had the opportunity to play a game of volleyball with a few of the Haitan teachers from the school run by the missionaries here. It was fun to spend time with them even though we couldn't understand eachother when we tried to communicate and despite the fact that I'm anything but a volleyball player! However I made an exception for today and it was worth it.
Thank-you to those of you who are praying and thinking about our team. God bless you!
