First, we got up and had breakfast in Port Au Prince. Then, we took the long anticipated 4 hour drive (I slept for 3 of them). The people that have been here before were amazed at how smooth and improved the road was. I was just glad it wasn’t a 6 hour drive. When we got here Kristie and her daughter, Carrie, greeted us. We went over and had my favorite meal, spaghetti. Then Kristie took us on a tour of UCI. When we got back some kids came over and had fun taking pictures until they discovered Mike’s phone. We walked over to the school to play on the play set. This girl came over to me and gave me a big hug. She grabbed my hand and took me to the slides and we went down a couple times. I also helped her do the monkey bars and swings. I loved how affectionate they were. Then we went and had dinner with delicious beef.
Later that night, we went over to the church and a group of men were there to sing to us, men’s choir. So, we sat down and they started. They spoke Haitian Creole so Pastor Jean Jean translated it to English. When they sang the songs you had no idea what they were saying but I knew it was meaningful because the men’s choir were crying. I can’t explain the rest you would have to be there.
