This past week has come to a close and placed in the history books.
We had some fun trying to figure out whether or not we are participating in daylight savings time or not. Historically, Haiti has not taken part in daylight savings time, but this year they decided it was as good of a time to start as any. We had some phones that moved an hour ahead and other phones that stayed the same. After a full day of confusion though, we had everyone switched over and onto the new Haiti daylight savings time (Which matches the eastern U.S. time zone if you were curious).
We hosted another team from PA this week, this time a mission builders team. The team was specifically put together from working professionals to come down to perform specific projects. It was the first team that I have been almost exclusively responsible for and I saw that I had some strong areas and some weak areas, but in the end the projects we prepared for got all wrapped up.
This 10 person team had managed to pour a concrete apron around the new mechanic depot, install the electrical in the depot, fix numerous vehicles, and complete various roofing projects around campus in preparation for rainy season. I have to admit I was very surprised at how fast and efficient these guys and gal worked. They were a great group and I was only sad that we only got to spend 4 days with them.
This week has me getting some paperwork and forms together for the guys in charge of transportation and maintenance. I will also be communicating with "my people" (As Kate puts it) in a group of electrical engineers and electricians to get them some measurements of our campus.
Kate will continue to be her awesome self! Raising our growing little boy (Who has now learned to not only pull himself up onto objects, but he can also get down without any struggle or fuss. And while his crawling isn't perfect yet, he can almost walk along the front of the couch back and forth) and communicating with teams that are looking to come down (Which means that if you want to bring a group down or know somebody that is looking at doing a missions trip, then you can know that Kate will be handling the communications and you can talk to her rather than someone you don't know!)
That's all for the night folks! Hope you had a good Monday and have a great rest of the week!
