The team departed Petit Goave Saturday morning…bright and early at 5:30am in hopes of missing any potential roadblocks or demonstrations. There were none and we arrived safely at the Petionville guesthouse. After unloading the van and short naps, we headed out to Papillon for a little shopping and lunch. Papillon employs local women as artisans who make beads, pottery and other items. This enables women to feed, clothe, and educate their children. We feasted on pizza and frozen drinks like pink lemonade! We then headed up into the hills to the Overlook and enjoyed ice cream and the amazing view of the city.
Sunday morning we attended church on the Methodist campus. After a quick snack it was off to the airport for our flight to Atlanta then KC. We have had an amazing week, made new friends, worked hard with our CHE friends and strengthen old friendships.
We will be back in 2020! Won’t you join us?
