We had a great Wednesday in Haiti. The work projects continued and great progress was made. And we also attended a Haitian wedding on the compound.
The men continued work on the new outdoor kitchen that will be used to cook food for the students at the NVM school. As you can see from the photos, the building is starting to take shape. They should finish the project tomorrow. And of course we will document their progress. We thank Verle and the guys for their hard work out in the hot Haitian sun!
The ladies continued their work painting the ceiling tiles for the new hospital. I believe they reported that 75 tiles have been painted. And as you can see in the photos, the workers are starting to put the tiles in place. And the result is great.
Terry Weston again spend the morning working in the NVM clinic. This was his last day serving as the doctor on call. He had some interesting cases today including a One-day-old baby. They were very pleased that he could fill in while our Haitian doctor was at a conference.
One of our good friends on the NVM compound got married today. And we had the opportunity to help out. Cheryl and the ladies helped decorate the church and a tent where the reception was held. And Jim was asked to give the sermon at the wedding. It was great fun and a real cultural experience.
Thanks again for your prayers. It is hard to believe that there are only two work days left. Tomorrow the ladies and Jim return to Onaville to conduct a basket-making class and the men continue their construction work. We will keep you posted.
