From dawn to dusk, the days are so busy here in Nan wo. One of the first things to happen on the crowded school campus is the morning “formation.” Haitians are patriotic, and the raising of the flag is important. Check out this video and watch as the kids show their respect and pledge allegiance.
After the pledge of allegiance, the school day begins! Because the lunch meal for almost 500 kids must begin right away, the cooks must start the fires to get the water boiling for beans in rice. Meanwhile, a food vendor lady sets up with her own snack foods for sale for those who can’t wait til noon. Her paté friyé is absolutely delicious when warm and sprinkled with piklis (spicy cabbage). Yum!
The 15 boys who live on campus must make their own meals. They currently do so on the same dirt floors they sleep on. That will soon change with the newly constructed dorm rooms!
We are tired tonight
It’s dark and we just finished updating kids. Each morning we are awakened at 4am by men and women bringing in the day with praise to the Lord. It’s beautiful.
One morning we woke at 3 am to women preparing the meal for the school kids. They get up before sunrise and everything is quiet when darkness falls.
Thank you for your faithful prayers. God is good.
