Haiti 2010, Day 7 and the End

It’s our last day here and we still have some work to do. Today is my day to help in the kitchen so it’s up early to help prepare breakfast. It was French Toast, Spam, Grits, Corn beef and Oranges this morning.

A good Hot Breakfast

After breakfast it was devotions and then off to work. With kitchen duty I helped clean up the mess and do dishes and laundry. The medical team went to the college clinic and met with many of the local people who had need of medical help and medicine. The balance of the people worked in the workshop varnishing benches for the next church project.

Benches Varnished and Drying

After the benches were mostly dry it started to sprinkle so we hurried and stacked them in the workshop to finish drying.

In the afternoon we went to the top of a mountain overlooking Port Au Prince where we had a great view of the city and the Carribian. There was an art fair at the top of the mountain near the lookout where we shopped again.

You could find as many paintings in any color you wanted. There were hundreds of paintings available here.

Paintings everywhere

After we left there it was back to campus where we were treated with a great Haitian meal cooked by Elease the cook and housekeeper for the Work and Witness house and her friends. The meal was delicious with chicken, beans & rice, fried bananas, and many other dishes unique to Haiti.

After that is was time for reflection and then packing for the trip home.

It’s up at 4:30 for a quick breakfast, we load the bus and are off to the airport. Everything goes smooth and we land in Miami where the rest of the team will fly to Nashville and I will fly to Detroit. Their flight is a couple of hours ahead of mine so we have some lunch and I see them off before I go to my gate.

The Tennessee District Nazarene Team

It has been my pleasure to be part of the team from Tennessee. I will always remember them fondly and hope to be able to join them again sometime. Remember we are all residing on this earth and when you think of the people of Haiti remember what God said:

Leviticus 23:22
“‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the LORD your God.’”
