Easter Sunday in Haiti

By Steve & Tania
What an experience today was! First thing this morning around 7 kids started to arrive for church at 9 ish. I have learned that the Link is slot like Haiti and when church starts at 9 people can still stroll in around 10. We had the pleasure of going to a house yesterday to meet 2 kids that we have chosen to sponsor for education which is very cool to actually see the kids you will be helping. This morning the first kids to comedown the road to church were the 2 we sponsored yesterday. Just like the Thornes to be so early for church. Church service was very lively and picture around 400 Haitians singing very load and enthusiastic crowd. Mark spoke and gave a great Easter message. We then went up to the mountains to a kids church and had around 150 kids singing and praising Jesus - awesome!! Kids are so great here just thriving for someone to hold their hand or take their picture!
Now onto Chris I opened the majority of the 150 rice bags and like yesterday Chris was more at the beach - in his mind. I also echo his comments on the great friendship I also have made. We have all got along so great and have all pitched in where needed. One more day tomorrow working on the children's ministry wall, finishing fence and hopefully will get to go to the house to see progress that has been made.
Kids hope all is well and we miss you! We may have a few more kids on the fridge now. We realty have grown to love the kids here!
