Bittersweet Goodbyes

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our time in Haiti is coming to an end. Tonight is our last night in Haiti! We have had a fantastic time here and have learned lots. Our day was a great end to this wonderful journey. This morning we finished painting our last room in the Trade School. Almost the whole team participated, and we got it done in a fairly short time. After all that painting, we had a delicious lunch. (Thank you so much to the wonderful cooks, who have made us all the amazing food!) After lunch, we walked around the community delivering gift bags to the families that the team visited yesterday. They were very grateful for them.  We finished our afternoon at the beach. It was an awesome way to relax and make some more unforgettable memories on the trip. We got a surprise treat before supper, coconuts! A staff member cut them open with a machete, and then we drank the milk and ate the insides.  It was a nice treat to have a sweet, fresh coconut. We ate our last fantastic supper here, and headed off to our last big debrief with Wade & Marilyn, and Marc. We talked all about what we enjoyed and what we learned on this trip. Then we got ready for bed. Tomorrow morning will be very early, (we leave here at 4:00 am) and we hope and pray for safe travels home. We can’t wait to see all of you again and we want to thank you for following our progress.

God Bless,

Abbey

P.S I would also like to wish my awesome big brother Ethan a very very Happy 16th Birthday!! We love you, miss you, and can’t wait to see you in a few days!! Hope you have a great Birthday!
