Mission # 4 - Haiti - March/April 2010
This was my first trip to Haiti, a rough unpredictable week, not knowing where we would be from one day to the next. The massive earthquake that happened in January made getting equipment and traveling extremely difficult. It was also exhausting. Every morning we were awake by 6 am due to the heat, the roosters or the neighbor sharpening his hoe. Port-au-Prince was devastated with tents everywhere, people living in the streets and one rubble pile after the next. Somehow, by the grace of God, we were able to get much accomplished. We met some wonderful resident missionaries who had served in Haiti for years. We were able to provide solar solutions to help them and, in turn, help the destitute people of Haiti during a time of extreme need.
