A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

A typical day starts around 6:00 a.m. After a quick breakfast, the team is driven over bumpy roads to the Apparent Project. Since the roads are too rough by the tent city they are working in they walk the rest of the way.



This is what they see on their walk to the tent city.









Inside the tent city the living conditions are very poor. In this "shelter" a single women sleeps with her baby.



The guys have been getting a lot of work done and are surrounded by a crowd of Haitians who curiously watch them.





At 11:00 a.m. each morning the team walks back to the Apparent Project to eat their lunch. Once lunch is over they return to the tent city and spend 20 minutes in the small church building, reading God's Word, praying and singing with the Haitian people.





Then while the Caribbean sun burns they get back to work, framing, nailing and building homes, for those who have none.








At 3:00 they walk back to the Apparent Project to help feed street children.








Once a 100 children have been given food and water, Sherilyn and I sort through suitcases of donated clothing to find each child something to wear.
At 4:30 we are finished and an exhausted team heads back to our home, to eat and rest so they can do it all over again the next day.

  2. Wishing I could be there to help you guys! It's such a good work you are doing! My best wishes for lots of energy to build more homes for the homeless. The new owners must be so excited! I hope they know Who they should thank and praise for that..

    Thank you so much for posting these pictures! "My Daddy" with "hat on" made Charity very excited, and she wanted to see over and over. I can almost guess who has the camera, as some people aren't on any photos - they'll have to switch around for the next post! Praying for you all!
