MY TRIP TO HAITI: Feb. 26-March 5, 2011
I traveled with John Hall, founder of Trinity/HOPE Inc., to visit 12 of the 86 schools participating in the feeding program in Haiti. It’s the first time I’d been to a third world country. This is the first school we visited – Mixte Probite.
The second school we visited, Ponte Quenepe, was located in Gonaives, Haiti. We got there in time to watch how they served their beans and rice.
A little boy sat next to me said, “English?” I said, “Yes!” Then he said, “One, two, three.” I think that was the only English he knew. But he got me started teaching them to count to ten together. (When children are fed, they can learn and have fun.)
This is Trinity/HOPE founder, John Hall, with Joan Weber, chairperson of our Mission & Ministry Board, and Jean Phillipe Paul, one of our favorite feeding directors who came to speak to us on our Thanksgiving Night in the Hunger Fight fundraiser.
