Me and the Guys

Hello everyone!  I wanted to let you all know that I am not dead and I have not forgotten about everyone back home.  It has been a very interesting and diverse time here in Haiti.

I have been doing all sorts of random things down here so I will just touch on some of my favorite….

About three weeks ago I got to privilege to meet ten young men of Haiti. So many people come down here for the babies and little kids(which is great) but who invest in the lives of the young adults here?  Are you just on your own after 18?  Talking to one of my Haitian buddies(Bernard) he said he knew of some guys that were looking to work on their English and I was looking for some friends.  Sounds like a good pair, does it not? We met on this mountain side where they all lived.  Our first meeting was nothing more then an introduction. We talked about when we would meet again and some “small talk”.  We decided to meet twice a week and go over Matthew.  I was so excited!! Not only was I going to hang out with these guys but we got to go over scripture together.  I can say that things do not always go as planned down here so we have only gone over Matthew once but building relationships with these men is such a blessing and an honor! We went and played soccer once and built some bunk-beds for the house I am staying at. There is something about serving as a group that brings you closer then just sitting around and talking.  I am excited to get to know these men more and more for my short time here.  We meet again Monday and I can hardly wait to see what God and them will bring to the table.
