Ten firsts for me on this trip

10. Visiting a 3rd world country
9. Speaking Creole (even if it was just a few words)
8. Taking a bucket shower
7. Sleeping under a mosquito net
6. Enjoying an entire beer from start to finish
5. Spending a week without seeing or talking to my husband
4. Being the “minority” (and not minding)
3. Praying out loud in front of others
2. Holding an orphan
1. Eating spam!

Ten best moments of the trip

10. Drinking hand-squeezed passion fruit juice
9. Listening to Hank’s emotional prayers
8. Doing my nails with a sweet Haitian girl
7. Going through an entire Haitian-Creole – English picture dictionary with a boy named John
6. Three-year-old Fresmica voluntarily sitting on my lap during church service
5. Receiving hugs, words of appreciation, and the gift of a papaya from the families we installed water filters for
4. Praying with and for the families we installed water filters for
3. Seeing 6-year-old Obison’s huge smile every day
2. Holding an orphan
1. Realizing (with Curtis’s help) that we were the answer to someone’s prayers

The people of Haiti will always be in my heart.

    Thanks for posting a great blog. Reading it reminded me why it was a complete privelege for me to lead an amazing group of people, and be the one to introduce them to our wonderful neighbors in Haiti.

    1. Thank you for leading the trip, Scott. We would’ve never have had the experience (and hopefully many more to come) if you hadn’t answered the calling.
