My First Trip to Haiti: Part 1 by Saundie Weiss

unnamed (44)

                                         My first trip to Haiti was in July 2014. There were things I expected to see and places I knew I would go. I knew it would be different from home. I knew that the people who live in third-world countries don’t have the same kind of days that I have. But, what I didn’t expect, and what no one can prepare you for, are […]

Meet Marlie

Marlie

                                        We first met Marlie and her parents, Greg and Alena, a few years ago when she and Betsy started kindergarten at the same school and joined the same soccer team. Her dad, Greg, ran on our adoption half marathon team this past Spring. Both of her parents are great supporters of Loving Haiti. They’ve even talked about coming down to Haiti as a family. This […]

New Bunk Beds

unnamed (69)

                        By Denny Bain Last Spring, Loving Haiti raised money to help make some important and basic upgrades in the Children’s Home that would significantly improve the quality of life for the kids.  We called the project the Orphanage Maintenance Project.  It focused on four basic areas in the Children’s home: plumbing, electrical, bedding and painting. If you’d like to read about the OMP please (click here for more info). The bedding part of the […]

Citadel Field Trip

By Kristyn Emmer, Hey all, from a stormy evening here in Haiti! It’s been quite a few past 48 hours, but we made it to the end of our grand Haitian adventure!  Yesterday’s day at the beach really set us up for a jazzed and ready-to-go group of kids to head to today’s escapade to the Citadel, a fort/castle built in 1806 that stands on the top of a big ole mountain. So after surviving a night in our less-than-ideal “hotel,” we packed our 15-passenger vehicle with […]

Beach Trip!!!

By Mckenzie Osborn Today has been a day full of adventure and lots of new experiences! We got up really early (5am) to start on our trip to Cap Haitien! Pastor rented us a van for the trip and all 7 of our team, 10 of the older orphan kiddos, Darling, a local Haitian that speaks very good English and partners with Loving Haiti for business, and the driver hopped into an eighteen-passenger van to head on a 3 hour trip! It was a VERY […]

Feeding Clinic

Feeding Clinic at Jennifer’s By Saundie Weiss This morning we went back to Bill and Jennifer’s to help her with the weekly feeding clinic. Every Wednesday, she offers a clinic for families who need food to feed their families. An American woman who lives here, Amber, and a pastor in Pignon help Jennifer. They know these families and their situations so they can easily understand each of their needs. Today, we helped hand out formula for the babies; next week will be food for malnourished children. […]

Movie, Beauty Salon, Sunday Church, VBS

By Kristyn Emmer Welcome to hot, humid, and fun-filled Haiti! It’s been a couple days since the last update on what’s happening here, so let me try to get you up to date. As you can imagine, it’s been unexpectedly busy for Haiti time as we were anticipating this week’s events. Before I get into those, I’m going to back it up a couple days to Saturday night. On Saturday night, the big screen came to Pignon! Before it got dark, we all set up […]

Pressing Need!

unnamed (25)

                          As you may have previously heard, I(Denny) along with 6 awesome people from Fort Collins arrived in Haiti a few days ago.  One common thing you hear from Haitians or you find out if you visit, is that life in Haiti is hard.  Actually, hard would be a massive understatement.  Every. single. task. is more difficult in Haiti. Here is one simple example from last night’s “Movie Night” we tried to put […]

Everything is Different

By Saundie Weiss, So the first couple days here have been an experience. It’s a very simple world to describe everything we are digesting. Everything is different. I expected it to all be different and in some ways I can anticipate and prepare for it, but what I cannot prepare for is the emotions that come, or in some cases don’t come.   Haiti is a beautiful country. It’s an island with mountains, green trees, and colorful plants, like hibiscus and other red flowering trees. […]

Team FC Day #2

By McKenzie Osborn-   Today, our first full day in Haiti has been so incredible and it has been so fun getting to know the kids better and getting to experience more of the Haitian culture. Early this morning we got up and Pastor Francois drove us to Hinche – the closest large town – to get building supplies for the bunk beds for the orphanage. The drive was approximately an hour over completely unpaved roads with many, many bumps and many, many potholes – […]
