Finally, On to Mission (Day 3)

By Wednesday, I was better and able to go with everyone else to the Baptist mission, vendors, and Ann's Orphanage, which is for young girls. It was a wonderful day and so much fun to be with the girls. Erica told the story of Joshua and Jericho. The point of the story is that when God tells us to do something, we must obey Him. God gave what sounded like crazy battle plans, but Joshua obeyed Him anyway, and it proved to be a very good thing. Never question God's will and directions.

                                  Although I was mainly better, I was still slightly queezy Thursday morning so I ate a very "healthy"  pre-breakfast of 7 Up and crackers.                                      

The new guard dog is a young handsome German Shepherd named Mr. Black. The old one is Mr. Brown.

This is Pastor Maxeau. He is the main pastor that we have connections with in Haiti.

There's nothing quite like eating pizza and drinking champagne while in the cool mountains of Haiti. 

Down below the open restaurant, some boys played soccer with a water bottle.

The girls had so much fun playing with my hair. 

The children marching around "Jericho" with Barbara leading them. 

When we got home, we had dinner and there was a Birthday cake for me because my Birthday was the next day. 

Have fun.


  1. Wow! Sounds like you had a lot of fun! That champagne is what especially draws me! Man what I wouldn't give for a glass of Hatian champagne!

  2. Ha ha! Lydia it is a good thing it is non alcoholic! What flavor is it anyway? I think it is some kind of fruit flavor. That was so sweet of them to remember your birthday and to bake you a cake!

  3. That's definitely the way to play soccer! Make do with what you got.I'm glad you got a birthday cake on your birthday. :)

  4. Yes, the champagne is a fruit flavored soda.
