Just thought I would post a couple of photos and thoughts. In FDN the Army joined with several other churches to have a (REAL) Sunrise Open-Air at 5 AM in the market. Since I’ve started playing in the band, I joined them. It was refreshing to start off the day worshiping the risen Savior. There was a good crowd of the church people and the occasional group of people waiting for public transportation benefited from the music and witness. The timbrelists played a nice number accompanied by the band. We had a march of witness back to our respective churches. It has been a LONG time since I’ve had to march and play at the same time and I was definitely not ready for it. It wasn’t uphill or anything but the road had lots of potholes to watch out for and I think the pace was a bit brisk. As we passed the clinic, I stepped out and headed back to the house to get ready for the rest of the day.
Felix was scheduled to preach at a nearby corps and we were pleasantly surprised to see that the dirt/rock road had recently been graded, turning what has been a 30 min bouncy ride into a quick 10 min trip. It was muddy and slippery in a couple of places but the 4-wheel drive truck (and Felix’s skillful driving) got us through with no problems. We stayed afterwards for dinner and fellowship with the officers. They have a 3 yr old son so Matthew had a great time playing with him.
Matthew and I made 60 of our traditional colored eggs on Saturday and took 40 over to Bethany Children’s Home. We had a short devotional with the children before giving them their eggs. We might make some more to give out to our TB patients on Monday.
On Saturday we also had our DC/DDWO and a couple from the SA-USA-S over for lunch. It was good to spend the time with them, especially since our DC/DDWO will be farewelling from Haiti in a month’s time to return to the USA-S and this might be their last time in our home. They will be sorely missed!
I’ll finish with a video clip of Matthew, while he was waiting for me to get ready to take his picture with the eggs. He sure is an energetic little boy!
