Arrived in Haiti today and drove through Port au Prince. It’s great to see the progress that’s been made since I was here in July. Most of the rubble is off the streets and there are fewer collapsed buildings. Also took a tour of the property the Haitian government donated to Mission of Hope and saw 4 of the new homes that have been built. Living Water is partnering with Mission of Hope, so I watched them work on drilling a well that will provide fresh water to the 2,000 students and 60 orphans on their property.
There have been lots of great additions at Mission of Hope: the orphans have moved into their new rooms/homes; Maggie’s Kitchen is open (this is where the orphans eat); a new student lab has been built (one day will have computers); construction is progressing on the new hospital; and a slab has been poured for the new guest house. All of this in the last 6 months!
Most of all, kids are being loved, cared for, and shown the love of Christ. It shows in their smiles.
