Visiting Elders / Healing Haiti Orphanage

The team eagerly embraced another day in Haiti. Our morning was spent looking over the burial site of the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti. Reality sunk in for all of us as we walked through the grounds.

We next visited some elderly Haitians who live in shelters set up through international donations. They welcomed our team in with open arms and were so appreciative of us being with them.

Our team ended the day by setting up a circus with orphanage children at their residence. The children made lions, jumped rope, had popcorn, played keep away, and played lots of soccer. It was difficult to break the bonds we had formed by the end of the day. They gave us the only thing that they posses; Love.
