Today the team worked on laying out the area for the playground in the children's village. They also dug the holes for the steel posts, which is quite a job. Our friend Neil, who works for Washington state agriculture, and who has come to Haiti twice to do soil testing, remarked "what soil" when he first saw it. In Marose the soil is more like rock with smaller ground up rock. It is so hard and packed it is almost like digging concrete. So digging the post holes was quite an accomplishment.
The team also spent time with the children today and passed out the children's gifts to them. Then in the evening the team passed out glow-sticks. The children love the glow-sticks, usually a wild game of chase and capture breaks out once the glo-sticks are given out. The team usually gets quite involved in the game.
Thank you again for partnering with us in prayer.
