Who can rock out their first day in Haiti with 4 hrs of sleep? The SSI TEAM! We arrived Monday morning and hit the ground working. Our hosts are fantastic and so welcoming! The needs are great and there’s always many. At Marantha, 75 preschool children come for the day. We drove down the street with high walls on both side. Once we came through the locked gate, the children were in full swing of learning and play when we arrived. Intrigued, adorable faces stood and stared.
We had time to divide up the supplies we brought, along with shopping, connecting with another outreach to pregnant/new moms and babies. We also started construction help (until the torrential downpour paused the work) and Courtney has completed one assessment.
We’re bracing ourselves for a week full of busy and purposeful work! The team is ready to serve with enthusiastic and willing hearts.
