Update Mar.18/09 Haiti

We hit the ground running when we got to Haiti. This is the first chance I have had to update my blog. Everyone is doing great with no ill effect from the trip and the first two days in Haiti. The picture above shows the foundation of the school/church that we are building in PAP. We stopped there the first day and met with the minister of Culture. They have made new rules for construction of schools in Haiti and that they have to have an engineers stamp on the blueprints and inspected. This creates no problem for us as we build our schools at the highest standard there is. This is as a result of a couple of schools that collapsed in PAP over the last year. They were not one of ours but I think it is a great idea. We spent most of the day in the Jacmel schools and Chabin school. Over the next couple days we will be traveling to some of our outlying schools with Savanette on Monday. All the children are so happy. Rylee is getting lots of reports done for her news broadcasts and Dick who is developing a documentary is getting all the filming done as we go to complete the project. Dave, Bill & Cornie are doing great also.
I'll get back with more pictures and write ups, hopefully in the next couple of days...
