Hey everyone this is Alex. We wanted to give everyone a little rundown of the first couple days here in Haiti so here we go. Day 1: Got off the plane, went to a little restaurant and had some pizza for lunch, came to our new HOME and passed out for a couple hours because we didn't sleep while trying to get ready to come here, woke up hung out with the Thompson's for a bit and went back to bed. Day 2: Woke up around 8 ate breakfast with the Thompson's, went to exchange USD to GDS, dropped the girls off, Mike and I went to get propane and gas for the generator. After that Mike took me into Port au Prince and to some stores here in town where they do their shopping. Also checked out some areas by the bay where people are really roughing it. Then the moment we've been waiting for since we left here in February! It was time to go see our kids!!! Have dinner with them and let them know we are going to be around for a while. :) Within minutes it was like we never left! We ate dinner, we played basketball, we got our nails and faces painted in playdoh, we played more basketball, we kicked around a soccer ball, we danced to some music and we looked through all the pictures I had on my phone together. We got to show them everything from our house (still ours for a couple more days haha), to deer in the back yard, and all the way to snow and plowing. The day was awesome and the kids were not super sad this time when we left so they must have understood for the most part which is amazing! Day 3: We got up and ate breakfast, went shopping today at some stores and checked out some other stores with Kristen. Then we came back home ate a quick snack and headed out to Deni with the Thompson's to check on the ministry they started that has now been taken over by a Haitian Pastor. Also went to check on some kids that they helped get to hospitals to be checked out for some pretty serious stuff they had going on they were both doing well. Grabbed some SIM cards for our phones on the way home. Another great day!
Well, there is a little rundown of the first couple my friends! Hope everyone is doing well and see you soon (when you come to Haiti to visit). We are probably going to lose power any second. haha
