Hurricane Matthew Relief Day Trip

Our fall trip for 2016 came about two weeks after Hurricane Matthew wreaked its havoc in Southwestern Haiti. Pastor Rosie made a trip out west the week before we arrived to assess damage and see where we could be of help. Tuesday after our arrival, we loaded up a bus with about 35 of the Vision Diklo church members and drove 4 1/2 hours west to the city of Anse-a-Veau. We brought rice and cooking oil for the local church members and bought materials to fix the church’s roof, part of which was torn away by the hurricane. The best part was seeing all the Vision church members serving other church members (strangers to them) far from their home city. This was very much a new experience for them, and they loved every minute of it!  Here are some photos of the trip:

Some of the damage we saw on the drive there. This was mild damage compared to places where entire towns were leveled further west.

Good as new!

I'm enjoying learning more about serving the people of Haiti.
