Final Update From Haiti

Good Morning Sonlight. I write this morning not knowing where time has gone. Today will be are last day here. We are up and out by 2:00 a.m. heading to the airport Friday morning.
Yesterday was a great day. The ladies delivered the food they bought, then we all went to work for Dr. Ken who used to be the director of hands and feet but has now started his on clinic for infant baby well care which is awesome. Very much needed in this area. We didn't see much else yesterday. Celebrated Chuck's birthday with a pizza party with all the kids. That was fun see all the smiles.

Getting ready to head out and finish helping Dr. Ken this morning, then is off to find Charlotte to goto tent city. Short and sweet this morning. Love ya all. Love God Love People Period.

Update From The Haiti Team

Here is another update from team leader, Ed Gibson.

"Good morning SonLight family & friends & loved ones.  This morning I woke up early and had the opportunity to come down to the beach.  Such as amazing and peaceful place that God has created.  I sit here and look at this amazing view and just think how often we/I fall short on thanking God for all He provides.  I truly love this place.  The smiles on the face of the Haitians tell everything, these people so much just want to be loved.

Yesterday was a great day.  We spent the day repairing Greg's truck which was in really bad shape.  We also repaired the BUV (for those of you who know what that is) which was also not running.  We have fixed everything that Chuck asked us to look at and by God's grace we have extra funds left.

We were able to move and wire a generator at Jessica's so the girls would have power.  The ladies went to the market and bought rice, beans, puree, spaghetti, and oil.  It was divided up six ways and the ladies will be delivering it to six families today.

Thank you everything for the prayers and support.  Love God, Love People, Period.

Ed Gibson"

Update From The Haiti Team

Our team in Haiti is still w/o internet so the team leader, Ed Gibson, is texting me updates.  Here it is.

"Good morning SonLight.  Things are going great here.  We were able to spend the day working with Greg and his crew at the new village.  Boy was it hot!  No shade at all.  The ladies spent the morning at the formula program and at the school.  We spent the evening driving around looking for parts for Greg's truck which we will fix today (tie rod, ruptured brake line, new brakes, new tires, etc).

Things are starting to look better around Jacmel, trash is gone and the debris on the side of the road is being cleaned up.  This makes my heart feel better.  As Chucky says, "one Haitian at a time".  Please pray for this little special young baby named Jocelyn.  She is only 11 months old and was brought to the house with full blown aids.  She is so precious and full of life.  I get tears in my eyes every morning when I hold her.

Once again, we're sorry for no blog.  I will keep Pastor Jason updated.  We love you SonLight Family.

Love God, Love People, Period."
