Here at Last

I arrived in Haiti safely without too much hassle, and I have settled in quite nicely. There is a team here from Grace chapel in Boston, so we got right to work yesterday. I've had to jump in feet first and over my head, but its been wonderful. Mark and Marsha (the American directors here) have been wonderfully welcoming and helpful, always with helpful advice.

Everything I've heard about the kids here has been right. They're wonderful, and although they're still kids, and they get into trouble sometimes, they are great. They share better than any other kids I've met, and they really look out for each other. A few of the boys have been teaching me Creole in the evenings, and my pronunciation makes them laugh.

Time to head back to work, but the internet is working for now, so I should be able to post more later.


  1. Glad to hear you're safe and already working.

  2. Kids!! Watch out for the cute ones - "it's a good thing s/he is so cute because s/he is soooo naughty!" That was basically our mantra at pre-school!

    Glad you arrived safely and are getting settled.

  3. hurray! Jamie has internet :) Glad you're having a good time too. Been thinking about you lots :) Hope you continue to have fun and settle in. Hurray for hospitable hosts too :) Love ya bro!
