Mission # 15 - Haiti - October 2012
This week long mission had a team which consisted of just Allen and me. We went back to Cap Haitian, Haiti to install a system at the mission home of Hudson and Lucy Hess. We had the pleasure of the Hess' company on a previous mission when we installed a solar water pumping system back in 2010. During this trip, we had the help of their Haitian workers to install a 9 panel (~2.3 kW) solar electric system. It was a challenge to explain instructions, given the language barrier. However, a couple of the guys understood mechanics fairly well and I was able to direct them primarily with gestures. While there, we also did a quick repair trip at a clinic nearby. Unfortunately, there aren't many photos since Allen and I tend to stay more focused on the work.
