I wanted to write and update you. The July team will leave for Haiti Tuesday in the early evening. Please pray for safe travel and on time connections. I will try to get a photo and post it on the blog before they leave.
The cooks in the orphanage wanted to do something special for Caitlin. So they asked Jonas to ask Caitlin what food she missed most. She told Jonas french fries. Somehow something was lost in the translation. We have had homemade french fries in the orphanage before, but they must call them something else. When Caitlin's french fries were served to her, she said they were thinly sliced potatoes that had been boiled instead of fried, and she was given tomato sauce as a condiment for dipping them in.
So she is probably still missing french fries :)
Caitlin will be coming home with the July team after having been in our orphanage for 2 months. I know she really wants to be home and see her family, but at the same time she would like to stay and be with the children. She has loved her time in Haiti. She has very mixed feelings. Please pray for her as the time comes for her to go home. And pray for the children as they have become very attached to her and will be very sad when she leaves them.
On a different note, we had another boy brought into the orphanage this afternoon. Please pray for his adjustment, and that he fits in well with the other children. Thanks so much for partnering with us in prayer.
