Monday at the Worksite

Hey everyone, this is Chris Wylie writing for the team.

Today was our second day on the work site.  All in all it was a very productive day.  We continued work on the roof of the house and put on the first few pieces of tin.   Some of us got our first sunburns today, but I think we’re beginning to become more acclimated to the heat.

The first day we had two kids show up.  Today there were four.  As soon as the camera was out they wanted to pose.

As we came back to the guest house today, we got caught in a big traffic jam that made the ride home take a couple of hours.  We were told that it was caused by a protest that happened earlier in the day because the road crews weren't paid on time.  Even though it made for a very long ride in the back of the tap-tap for a few of us, it was a really good chance to take a closer look at the streets of Haiti.  Interestingly I’ve found that I’m already a lot more comfortable being out of the compound and amongst the other Haitians in the streets of Port au Prince.  Personally, I think just going around and experiencing the city has been a life changing experience all in itself.

Well, I would say that today has been a very good day, and I’m very excited to see how the rest of the week unfolds.

God bless everyone at home.
