photos - various events

We were blessed with a donation of peanut butter! American peanut butter tastes better than the peanut butter made here in Haiti. We always have peanut butter or jelly sandwiches for breakfast.

The medical team that was here donated some medicines and supplies. This will help us as part of our community outreach programs here at Coram Deo.

We don't have snow here in haiti but there are christmas trees that are set out on display. This is a view of the national palace. The artificial christmas tree put out on the front lawn is nicely decorated. The boy running toward us was coming to ask us for money. The man in the white shirt is the roving medicine man. People can buy different medications from him. The government wants to control the sale of pharmaceutical supplies but you can see that they are not being successful.

This is the freedom statue near the palace. This is a symbol to the "Neg Mawon" who fought against slavery and eventually led to the independance of Haiti from the french.

This is the brand new transformer that was put up on our street on Saturday morning. We now have electricity again. We were only without electricity for 2 weeks, which is fast for Haiti.
