The first construction team of the season.

This past week, we had the privilege of hosting Ron & Linnea Shicks construction team, from Pennsylvania. The project the team worked on, was a complicated, multi-level school roof. Despite a large amount of rain, Gods timing was perfect, and the team finished the roof. It was Chloe’s first time out on a team, and she had a really neat week! She enjoyed spending the week out with her dad! A special thanks to Leah & Alisha for watching out for her and helping her out with her hair! Bri also went out with the team, but had to return home early due to a serious eye infection.
Here are a few pictures from the week.

The team prepared some outreaches, including showing the Jesus film, a ladies program, children’s program, and eye glass clinic. One of the highlights of Chloe’s week was helping out at the eye glass clinic. She got to use her creole, as she was 1 of 4 people giving eye exams for reading glasses. After an exam determined the strength of reading glasses the person needed, the “patient” was sent to the next station to pick out a pair of glasses. If they didn’t need reading glasses, then they got a pair of sunglasses. More than 400 Haitians were served through this outreach. Needless to say, Chloe was exhausted at the end of the day. She even dreamed about the clinic that night, as she talked in her sleep (in creole๐Ÿ˜‰)about 20/20 vision!

Gab & I drove out to the site on Sunday to worship with the team.

We are thankful for the Shick team and a good start to our team season, as well Gods provisions for the week.
