I spoke with Mike again this evening. The team had a great day. After being up in Peru they came back to the orphanage and went down to the river with the kids to play. This is always a ton of fun for both the team and the children. Later the team helped organize two of the containers we have sent. They will work on the others tomorrow. We are trying to get them organized so that the food or medical supplies are not throughout the tools and building supplies. The containers double as storage units for us at the orphanage. Mike is also hoping to get photos from Nathans camera of some of the distribution of food and supplies to those in need, so that we can share them with you.
Pastor Nathan said the service at the crusade went well tonight, there were several hundred attending, which is amazing as right across the valley is a voodoo temple with a fairly strong presence.
Each trip we try to bring something to the children that would be new to them. Tonight the team made caramel apples. Belle wood farms, here in Whatcom county donated the apples. I guess they went over very well, the children and orphanage workers loved them.
Tomorrow the team will be going to visit our school in Gonaive. They will once again be measuring children for school uniforms and they will be taking their photos for the people who sponsor them. We have almost 1/2 of the 600 school children sponsored now. If any
of you are interested, it is just $10 per month and it buys them one hot meal 5 days a week and books, supplies and a uniform. The team will also take the opportunity to pray over each child. The team would appreciate your prayers for accomplishing this tomorrow.
Please also pray for Nathan, tomorrow he will be going back to Port-au-Prince to buy paint and some supplies. The roads are slowly getting better but it is still a long hard trip.
For those of you who have been praying for Madam Nathan, she is recovering from her surgery still but is pretty good. Again many thanks for all of your prayers.
