From Kristen Barbour
Day 3 in Haiti- It’s been a very full day beginning with a 3 mile hike in the mountains to a demonstration forest for Haiti Reforestation Project. We met so many wonderful people along the incredibly challenging road/trail.
Next we went to CODEP and learned about the long history they have with Haitians in the mountains- Reforestation, fisheries, coffee.
Then we went to GOALS, the soccer development program in Destra, a remote mountain town. The road was like a mountain road in Colorado. Kudos to Kristen Barbour and Seth Keene for playing with the kids. The children came out to see the “blancos” and we shared lots of smiles and hugs.
As we shared God moments this evening it is clear that the Spirit is not only very present in this place but is swirling all around us and drawing us into a deep bond with the people and the place…and with one another.
