Mission team Mar/09 & meeting Government Officals

Above is a picture of our team. From Winkler on the left were Bill & Cornie the next to them is Dave from Medicine Hat, Rylee a news reporter from the TV station in Medicine Hat and then beside me is Dick a film producer from Medicine Hat that is shooting a documentary on our projects in Haiti. Dick will be finishing up his shooting on this last week that we are here. News back from some of the team members that they have arrived home back in Canada.

The top picture is at the Director General's office in PAP. We are lookng at my computer at the presentation I have on our projects in Haiti. It was a very productive meeting and we will see in the future what will come out of this. The Director General called it a miracle of what we have accomplished in such a short time and he was also amazed at the remote regions we have set up schools. This is something we have known all along but it was good to hear this coming from a man of such high authority. The response from him was very incouraging for something working in the future from support of some sort from the Government of Haiti. The verbal commitment was helping with supplying equipment that we would need in our technical school in Chabin. One of the courses will be teaching will be heavy duty equipment operation, welding, construction, plumbing & electrical. Any help with supplying equipment would be a huge help. Also a footnote is that this is the first interview the Director General has ever given so we felt priviledged.
