Pernier - Ecole Maranatha
Wednesday/Thursday There are 2 teams here staying with missionaries Bill and Dorothy Smith: the Minnesota team (10 people) and the Tennessee team (6 people). Most of us have been working on the construction site but since some of us have been very interested in seeing the schools, Josh (Children' pastor at his church in Tennessee) and I chose to help Pastor Obed and his assistant Anise in a school abut farther away from Port-au-Prince in a village named Pernier. A lot of the students in this school are sponsored through Latin America Child Care so there is a lot to do today: photos of each child plus two writing projects for each child to do. Before leaving the school, Josh took a little girl in his arms saying that he was going to leave with her. She was so cute - I was thinking the same thing! Today (Thursday), we will return to finish this work. The Lougou people will also be coming to pick up the raincoats and flashllights in the early afternoon.
