The Southern Florida District Work & Witness team in Gros-Morne, Haiti — has completed its third day of work.
We celebrated the 4th of July — by sining “God Bless America” at our dinner. Our “Kitchen Ladies” prepared an All-American pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy. Of course the meal was also “flavored” with Haitian chicken, rice, beans and fresh mangoes and pineapple. As the picture shows — we did have some patriotic napkins and decorations — but no fire works!
Thanks to the contributions of Bradenton First and Redland churches — a first rate computer lab is being installed on the third floor of the Gros-Morne Nazarene School. The lab will be equipped with 20 laptop computers and a special teaching computer that will be hooked to a video projector.
Because the electricity in Gros-Morne is so unpredictable — the lab will be powered by two Honda whisper generators. A special vented cabinet was built for the generators. In the photos you will see that David Coller (Avon Park) is making the first pull on one of the generators — and is being assisted by Rev. Bruce McEwen (Palmetto).
After the generators were installed — the video projector was started and adjusted by Jim McLellan (Palm Beach Gardens Northlake Blvd.). Jim is the designer and real engineer for the entire computer lab. Pastor Roy Shuck (Naples Faith) worked with his daughter and others to secure the computers and accompanying equipment.
This lab is likely the only one in the entire city — and will be comparable to computer labs in U.S. schools. Needless to say, the Nazarene School here is very anxious to begin operating the lab. It has been difficult controlling all the spectators who want to see the progress being made.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is our last work day here — so we hope to have a brief dedication and “open house” late in the afternoon.
Note the bus in front of the Gros-Morne church. This bus has provided all of our transportation needs from Port-au-Prince to Gros-Morne — and our transportation from the district center to the church each day (about 10 blocks). As we headed back to the center for lunch today some of the more adventurous decided to take the ride on top of the bus (including our District Superintendent)!
Tonight the team attended the mid-week service (which was part of their 40 Days of Revival) at the Gros-Morne church. Tholes Bocicot (Port St. Lucie Evangelical) sang a solo that had a huge impact on the several hundred who were present. Rev. Roy Shuck preached the sermon — which resulted in several coming forward to except Christ. Tomorrow night (Thursday) Treavor Pound will be preaching (this is a correction from the previous update).
While we didn’t have fireworks here tonight — the full moon peering over the nearby mountains as we departed church this evening — provided another reminder of God’s love for all His children who inhabit this earth.
but it is necessary to be very attentive what to rumple who it and whether there can be this person a swindler. after all and such happens. you don’t need which counterfeit production too much. simply it costs strongly cheaper.
