I forgot to tell you all that I rode a motorcycle to the orphanage. It was exhilarating and exciting. The air was great and my driver was so sweet.
We enjoyed a dinner of fried turkey and pasta. We invited Collins to eat with us. We discussed his school's punishment for lack of his books, backpack and school shoes. It was rewarding to bless him with all of the money he needs to return to school tomorrow. Collins is the sweetest boy and he is deserving of all the best. He is gracious and thankful and appreciative of all that we do. All of the children absolutely love John and Chez. Michael too. These people are just so wonderful to spend time with and to love.
We ended the night at the supermarket. That was an experience. Although I am Black, the Haitian people know that I am American. They're excited when I speak French but they know I'm a faker ;) I get watched everywhere that I walk and people stare, but I pretend that I don't notice. We bought snacks for tomorrow's trek. I'm a bit nervous, anxious really, but I've trained so hard for this over the past couple of months. I'm ready for my pilgrimage. I have amazing things to trek for and so much to prove to myself. I have things to prove to God as well, but I know that He knows that I am able to do his work. That is why He has called me.
God Bless us on this journey where there are 150 children living in need of love, support and resources.
