Aileen and I just finished wrapping some small gifts for our staff and we are gearing up for our singing debut in our church's choir. We even had to get uniforms made. Depending on how much we resemble penguins (black skirts, white blouses, black vests) you may or may not see pictures. My bet is not.
Two weeks ago we had a visit from the EIU Haiti Connection Advisor, Roy! Our translator, Gus (pronounced "Goose"), just graduated as a nurse practitioner and so Roy was in the country with the man who has helped sponsor Gus through school. We were able to visit with him for a few days and:
|Visit Paul Farmer/Partners In Health's new hospital! (That's Gus on the left)|
|Climb a waterfall!|
|Aileen is pushing me for once. She thinks she's funny.|
|I jumped off a 30 ft. cliff. More pictures to come.|
|One of our trucks got stuck in a river.|
|My favorite program is called Espwa Pou Demen, or Hope for Tomorrow. It's an 18-month program that helps get families out of dire poverty. Here our coordinator is interviewing two new families.|
Met a little girl named Lovelie who didn't want to leave my side. She's in the school sponsorship program.
|Two boys led Laura and me on a hike to see the sunset|
|The EIU group! We went to a restaurant that overlooks the whole city of Port-au-Prince.|
