THINGS I HAVE/HAVE NOT LEARNED

THINGS I HAVE LEARNED

If you are going to wear Walmart type sneakers and will be spending a prolonged time in Haiti, you should also bring with you super glue or gorilla glue or shoe goo or at least duct tape to fix the sneakers when they start falling apart.  I may write Walmart and suggest that they put various adhesives in the shoe/sneaker section next to the shoe polish and laces.  


HAITIAN WEDDINGS

Dan, Sheila, and I attended a Haitian wedding yesterday.  We have been to Haitian weddings before and so we each brought a book to read while we waited for the wedding to start.  This wedding started only one hour late, which all in all wasn’t that, bad.  So we arrived at 2:30 and left the wedding at 5:30.  Dan and Sheila went to the reception and I went to teach Bible study,
This wedding is a victory for the Women’s Program because the bride, who is a part of our sewing program, and who sews purses that we sell, made enough money to pay for the wedding. 

THINGS I HAVEN’T YET LEARNED
 
I still even after 20 years in Haiti can’t be late for things even if I know that they will start late.

 

VISITORS

We have with us a group of 7 from Colorado and 2 others, Grace the daughter of a long time friend and her friend Kristen who is a first grade teacher.  Grace a few years back spent several weeks with us but this is Kristen’s first visit.  The other night when I dropped them off at the crèche where they are staying, Kristen getting out of the truck said, “Have a good night and don’t let the bed bugs bite.”   Yes Kristen is First Grade teacher.

 

SUNRISE SERVICE

Saturday we will be buying 240 eggs and a couple hundred bananas and Ann, a friend will be making over 200 rolls and we will have gallons of coffee and juice for a Easter Sunday Morning Sunrise Service.  We meet at a place that overlooks the city where we will rejoice in the resurrection of Christ. 

CHRIST IS RISEN!!!
