Update from First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich, CT
Last Day of Ministry

by Emma, Josh, and Veronica | July 3, 2013 7:53 PM

Today we started our last day of Vacation Bible School and construction at Mariani. At Bible School the children learned about how Jesus fed the 5,000! Then we got the chance to feed the 5,000 (or maybe just about 100, but it felt like 5,000!) Today we had the biggest attendance as more neighborhood children came and joined us at GSO. We enjoyed listening to the children sing songs about Jesus, even though there was a language barrier. After lunch we went to Mariani to finish up some construction. We started by moving two huge piles of cement blocks and then passed buckets of concrete to make columns that are the entry way for a new clinic! Each five gallon bucket is only filled about two shovel fulls of concrete. So basically we passed at least 75 buckets per column, and there were 2 1/2 columns. After we finished the construction we started sports ministry and another soccer insued. At the end of the game it was tied so the game went into penalty kicks. Team America came out on top by one PK (this time). Some of the group had fun with the other children by coloring and making string friendship bracelets! Tomorrow we head out to the beach at Jacmel to enjoy the sunshine and some much needed rest. The drive will be about two hours through the mountains but the views will be worth it. Pray for us as we travel and enjoy the new parts of Haiti.

Wow! Jack - we are really amazed at the amount of work you are all doing. Great Job! Passing buckets of cement has now changed to passing buckets of dirt. We enjoy seeing all the photos and especially the ones we can spot you in, Jack! Every body has a smile and obvious good spirits while "pitching in" and it looks like there is good fun going on as you truly help out. We look forward to the daily news and check each day for the next adventure. Love, from your Los Altos Grandparents.
