We've arrived!
by Liz Drennan | January 4, 2014
We've arrived safe and sound in Haiti. After being met at the airport by PPM staff, we loaded on the bus and took a quick tour of Port Au Prince. We saw where lots of new government buildings were being built in the place of ones that were destroyed by the earthquake. We then had lunch at a local restaurant before heading out to the guesthouse that is our home for the week. We took some time to settle in and unpack. On the grounds of the guesthouse is also an orphanage, so we spent the afternoon playing the the kids until dinner. We are so excited to see what God has planned for our week here!

Play time!

Today, after church, we spent time playing with the children at Pastor Josue's orphanage. We taught them the game of musical chairs, and had a blast playing with them and learning more about them. They are so full of jpy and we can't get enough!

Working hard!
by Liz Drennan | January 6, 2014
Today we began the project of building a fellowship hall for Pastor Jacky's church. The first step was moving rocks to build the footings for the foundation. We loved working alongside our Haitian brothers and sisters.

Play time!

We spent the afternoon doing crafts and a VBS program with the children from Pastor Jacky's community. We sang songs, told a Bible story and did crafts, and played soccer with them. God really blessed our time with them!

Medical clinic
by Liz Drennan | January 6, 2014
Today some of us, who are nursing students, and our professors stayed to help with a free medical clinic at Pastor Josue's church. It was very busy, as we saw almost 200 patients. But the students gained lots of experience working with the people. It was a blessing to use our skills for the greater good in God's kingdom!

So many kids!
by Liz Drennan | January 7, 2014
Today we had so many kids for children's ministry at Pastor Jacky's. We told them the story of Adam and Eve, and made bracelets with them. We are excited to have 2 more days with these wonderful children.

Passing Buckets
by Liz Drennan | January 7, 2014
We continued the work on the foundation for the fellowship hall at Pastor Jacky's today. While passing buckets of water and rocks is hard work, we know the end result will be worth it.

Beach Day!

Such a Beautiful Week
by Bethany R. | January 12, 2014
From smiling children, to the firm handshake of Pastor Jacky, to the sweaty conversations between buckets of concrete, this week was beautiful. Our team came together as one, serving alongside one of the greatest men of God and his ministry in Caboret. We are so thankful that God allowed us to return to Haiti and we cannot wait to be back again. To God be the glory!
