So, we set up a mobile clinic in the older open air classroom and saw some of the children. They all craved even the smallest bit of our attention and we seemed to have more than enough love to go around.
After a couple hours, Greg and Bobby wanted to take us out into Thomazeau behind the orphanage and take us to where Margerie lived. Margerie was the young woman who blessed my last trip so as I was involved in her medical care on the day of delivering a bouncing baby boy despite all odds. The full story can be read in older posts from May. This was quite a treat of an outing. We all followed Bobby out of the gates and into the village. Big awakening for us as we walked amongst the mud and stick huts crowding in along a dirt path. We were obviously quite a spectacle for the neighbors! Most greeted and waved to us warmly as we trudged along under the scorching sun leaving puddles of sweat behind us.
We saw some really neat Haitians who had some ingenious inventions. One man was returning home from a fishing expedition with a homemade harpoon for fish made from a stick, wire, springs and rubberbaids. Brilliant!
So, I'm falling asleep now and will continue this note tomorrow...stay tuned....
