Thanks so much for all your comments. Everyone on the team has loved hearing from you and it really makes us thankful for all the support we have back home. We really appreciate you being a part of our team!
Today we started the day off at a Haitian church service. The service was in Creole which was interesting, and the members of the congregation were very welcoming to our group. Greg even had the opportunity to briefly talk about what our group is doing in the Bahamas. The church was also air conditioned, which is definitely a God-send!
We also had the opportunity to visit with Richard, the founder of Camp Bahamas, and hear a bit about his vision for the ministry. The camp gives Bahamian youth the chance to hear the Gospel and learn about a life different than gangs and drugs, both of which are very common on these islands. It’s also exciting that part of the cost of our trip goes towards sponsoring underprivileged youth to go to camp. More than 350 youth will attend Camp Bahamas this summer.
Thanks again for all your prayers! We will be back to our intense work week tomorrow. Some of our brave team members (Jaclyn, Nick, Robert, & Aaron) went crab hunting with Donovan early this morning. I guess the mosquitos were intense, but it sounds like the adventure was worth it!

Thanks again your updates are truly appreciated. Just a thought, in previous outreaches, the homes that were built are being used by just one family, (which is great) but this time, just think of all the people that will be blessed by your caring enough to spend the time, effort and everything else that you are giving on this trip. God is using you, bask in that privilege.
Thanks for the updates. It is good to hear what you are doing as a team. My prayer is that God will give you lots of opportunities to for God-talks with the local people and leave behind more than cement and sweat.
Great videos and great updates. Puts a smile on my face. I hope all of you are doing well and working hard and know that your actions and words do make a difference in the lives you encounter.
Today is the last day of heritage days and we are headed there… beautiful weather. Kara has left for Singapore for one year so we had a big send off with all the family last night. Rachael we really missed you there.
Hayley and Emma and Rachael I am looking forward to hear your stories when you come back. Emma I will forward this web site to your mom.
That salad looks … interesting to say the least. When are you going to be at the Toronto airport on the way back? I might stop in and see you all if possible. It would be great.
