Youth Conference 2015

This morning marks the start of our annual Youth Conference at our church.  Today started with approximately 300 youth and youth pastors from all around the area - Port au Prince to Petit Goave.
It will grow in numbers over the next couple of days. It is quite a privilege to be a part of it.

Supper before....
A cow is always bought and butchered for the conference.

The Goat Farm Project Moving Forward

The Goat Farm has been cultivated and fencing is going up for the various grasses that will be planted for the goats.  It is awaiting the installation of an irrigation system so it can be ready for the arrival of goats in the coming months.

Keith's New Toy

Keith has a new bike, but apparently hasn't figured out where to park it yet!
Big toys for big boys!

Mechanic Shop

This is a great day for our mechanic, Yvon!  For the first time, he is using the
hydraulic hoist in the Mechanic's Shop so he can do some repairs on the Kia.

Time to Blog Again

We haven't posted for a few weeks.  This has been a down time in our schedule -- we have had time to relax, visit in the community, chat and laugh with the other mid-termers, and we went to Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic by bus from Port au Prince for 5 days.  It was a great time of exploring the old colonial part of the city and relaxation.

So, this week, we are preparing for guests speakers and a few other individuals to arrive next week for the annual Youth Conference.  It is a conference for youth and youth pastors and leaders from as far away as Port au Prince and Petit Goave.

Once April arrives, we will go into high gear as we will have six weeks of teams and individuals here. It will be full of activity and energy!
