Tuesday was an incredible day. It was Haitian Flag Day, so schools and businesses were closed. We planned a service project where our kids (pre K to 12th were invited) would drive to Croix-de-Bouquets, about 45 minutes north of our school, to paint recently built homes for families who made homeless by the quake.
Foundation Maxima, which is owned by a "bissionary" (business missionary) and friend of ours, Mr. Vervloet. They employ several hundred Haitians at their warehouse, and the houses are inexpensive and go up very quickly. George W. Bush and Bill Clinton even visited Maxima on one of their tours! Shortly after the earthquake we wrote a letter to a group of WMU ladies, and won a little grant to build one of these. That house will go to one of our Quisqueya employees' families.
I'll share more pics and Part 2 tomorrow, including photos of the AMAZING orphanage on the same property, all run by Christian Service International.
