Andy, Beth and Dow returned from Haiti safely late Sunday night. It was a very productive trip and, they were continually amazed at how the Lord was working. There is so much to tell that we are planning an update/mission trip meeting soon. In the first picture below is a group of additional 33 orphans that another pastor and church are caring for. They range in age 3 to 14.
They are staying in different homes throughout the area, but gather at their church for classes taught by their pastor. They learn Bible verses, manners, etc. Andy doesn't think any of them are in school. The pastor is doing everything he can to help out. It is a sad situation! Maybe one day, Children's Hope will be equipped to provide support. We did provide some financial help this trip.
This is a picture of Mel Johnson with the St. Bd. of Mission. We love Mel! When you are with Mel, you truly see Jesus at work. This young fellow with him is Myson. He is the oldest child of the 16 orphans and what a character. He is always smiling and loves to be the center of attention. Samuel found him in Port au Prince washing windshields.
Beth with some of the younger girls. Beth's red hair and finger nail polish were big hits.
This is the front yard of the rental home. The tin gate in the background will be replaced soon.
