Raising Roofs in Haiti—Still Much to Do in Cayette

Can't stop time and it has run out for this trip. We have much still do here in Cayette—replacing roofs so village people in mountain regions have homes again. Many are still without safe shelter caused by the 2016 Hurricane Matthew. We are starting to make some good relationships that will help us to share more deeply with these folks who have lost so much in so many tragedies—hurricanes, earthquakes, poverty, hunger.

The pilgrimage back to Port and home starts today. On the way we will stop at a small fishing village in St. Louis de Sud. This is where one of our first roofs went on. It's a small community of about four families living communally. We will bring them some food supplies that each family will share.

Tomorrow morning I will head back to my own family in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. It will take a couple of days to get my thoughts together, but my mind is already turning back to our work in Mexico and perhaps other areas while still planning for the next return trip to Haiti to continue “Raising Roofs”. Thank you all for making this possible through your kind financial gifts.
