Haiti Day 2 (The Need Is Great)

Today we had the opportunity to deliver over 100lbs of school supplies, as well as a suitcase full of shoes, and several soccer balls, football balls, and basketballs to two schools.

It was a great experience meeting the students and staff at Boyer School, but I soon realized that the need is GREATER than I could have ever imagined. I wish I could have given more..., but we simply didn't have enough. Some of these children walk up to three miles one way to come to school, to get one hot meal, and to learn. It is amazing how happy one little piece of candy, one new pencil, a pad of paper, or a folder, etc., can make a child, who on any other given day may or may not have the essentials to survive.

I continue to be unable to express the living conditions we see, but, I can tell you the people of Haiti are friendly, happy, and grateful.
