Today was beach day and so we would be on the bus approximately 4 hours. Well, 4 hours of singing Creole songs and then English songs and the bus was rocking. We passed curious Haitians on the way who were wondering why all the singing and excitement and joyfulness was exploding from a bus totally filled with Restavec kids, missionary workers, and pastors. Talk about a musical celebration!
Then we arrive at the beach on a hot day, the kids turned into jellyfish and whales and sharks. They learn how to have chicken fights in the water and do hand stands under the water. They collect shells and were given water animal books to color at home. Pastor Lubin bought some coconuts cut up so we could drink the coconut water and eat the insides of the coconut. We heard some storm clouds and some thunder and decide it was time to leave the beach.
Did I tell you a hurricane was expected for Wednesday and Thursday and with our prayers being answered, we will have only received some short, heavy rains as we took the children home from the beach.
Amazing how language barriers and loveable children can still make a day fun, eventful, and totally content from the prospective of missionary workers and wonders.
I am happy to see that your day at the beach was just as wonderful as I thought it would be!!!!! SO GLAD their was no Hurricane!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell Sarah & Caleb that they better memmorize some of those Creole songs to sing to us!!!! Keep having a great time!!!!!
