I just received this email from Aaron. He arrived in Haiti yesterday with his team from Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.
It's only been two days, but it feels like it's been much longer. As team leader I've been able to connect with a couple Haitian pastors. They find work project for the team.
Yesterday we began to dig up the ground where a house once stood, and today part of my team began to build a new foundation for a new house in its place. It’s cool to be working alongside the Haitian people to rebuild their community.
Today the other half of my team, including myself, lead a VBS at a local school. We talked about heaven and how one day God's children will wear crowns and will reign with Christ. Then we made each child a balloon hat to remind them of their future with Christ.
Later on today we visited an orphanage. I think I will be spending alot of time there. There I met a little boy. He looked like he was about two or three years old. He has a mental disability and sits in a crib and sucks his fingers all day. His hand is raw from how much he sucks on it. He looks like he weighs about twenty pounds. The sad thing I learned later about him is that he isn't only two or three years old, but nine. It would blow your mind if you saw his picture, but due to our limited Internet, uploading a photo could knock out our connection for 24 hrs.Aaron's Missionary Page
