It is amazing how much can be done in a week. You guys did a fantastic amount of work while with us and still had bonding and fun time with the children. It was good to see you come and difficult to see you leave. Thank you for all your hard work in the heat and humidity. Sorry Jon that you picked up the cold germs from my kids just as Jim and Dickie did while here.

You arrived to find Kay Timbrmart construction nicely finished but inside and out still a grey cement. You left with the inside of that house all painted with beautiful colours, which makes it a joy to walk into. Thank you for a job well done. However a slight disappointment Aimee and Cherie as neither of you took over Cheryl’s job of providing entertainment by running across the compound in shorts and bra with your head and body covered in paint. Maybe next time.

As well you, as a group, took care of several other things for us – plumbing, repairs, preparing pay envelopes, giving cholera vaccine, assembling furniture, helping Haitian govt employees administer medication to our school students, etc.

A huge Thank You from all of us at the mission to all Timbrmart businesses who so very kindly donated funds for the new Children’s Home which very soon will house our girls. May God bless you all.
