Haiti 2016: Lisa's second day

Today was day three in Haiti!  We left for mass at 6:45 this morning. Following 2 hours and 30 minutes of Sunday morning mass (don't worry, we've already discussed this with Father Eugene. He won't be adding any time to mass at home!). Back to the house for a quick breakfast and change of clothes. Once again we headed to the school. With twice the troops we really got a lot accomplished!!!  One of the hardest things to face is how poor everything and everyone in Jeremie is. Standing on the third floor of school looking out over the beautiful blue water it's hard to come to terms with the fact that this area is so under developed. Yet there are so many young people here. Gary and Cathie's dream of this school is amazing. The fact they they are bringing job opportunities to the people of Jeremie is a wonderful thing!  I'm so blessed to be part of their mission!

PS. I found an elf on the shelf in Haiti!
