Today started bright and early at 5:30 as we departed for a near by (40 miles=3.5hrs) drive to Cap Haitian.  The road conditions is what makes this trip take so long.  Pastor usually takes the trip once or twice every two weeks.  Today, he needed the American missionary Bill to help carry some lumber back for him, so we took two trucks.  This is an absolutely beautiful drive as you look at the mountains, rivers, waterfalls, jungle etc.  However, it is also absolutely gut wrenching as you see the the extreme poverty on the way.  The things that we see along the way are so sad, feeling so bad that we couldn’t even take pictures.  There are many stories of what we saw and experience on the drive that will be better share in person. I did manage a few shots for the day:
