Dear family and friends;
Things continue to be unsettled here in Haiti. Yesterday demonstrations began once again, with people demanding the departure of the president. In the capital of Port au Prince, most everything is shut down and there are roadblocks in locations throughout the country. On Sunday, we were able to get through 2 barricades and arrive safely at Renault Sunday school, but on the way home, we couldn’t get through the roadblocks, so we took 4X4 trails and finally made it home.
We are so thankful for your generous response to last month’s request. With the support of your “Camp” donations, we have been, and will be able to host groups for camps this summer. This particular school came from an area up in the mountains and the young people didn’t know how to swim. Some of the kids were afraid of the water.
They all had to wear life jackets, but by the end of the day, they were loving the water and the water slides.
Katie has done a great job of following in her big brother’s footsteps with the making of videos. Here is a link to her first video which shows the new Camp Mahanaim waterslides in action.
Thanks again for your prayers and concern for Haiti and also for your support which will make it possible for many kids to attend Camp this summer!
Rod, Deb and Katie
