We need them more...

Hi everyone!
We have had a great couple of days. Yesterday, we rented a tour bus and took almost 30 street kids to the Historic Park near Aristides' house. It was kind of interesting because they were all so serious. You all know how boistrous they are when we visit them. Well, they were all very quiet and serious. On the bus I was told that they all looked out the windows with very little emotion. During the tour, they all stayed in line and listened to the whole tour. Kids in the U.S. would never have behaved so nicely.

The park was very professional, clean and beautiful! It showed what the slaves went through and how they made sugar from the abundant sugar cane here in Haiti. It was quite fun learning about it.
Today, Sunday we all went to church and then headed back over to the Street Kids. Jimmy gave a Bible lesson to the kids and then we let them look at pictures of themselves. They played games and just had fun. As Americans or Canadians, we naturally assume that those in poorer countries need us. However, so many times we are humbled when we realize how much we have recieved from those that we think we are serving. I wonder whom needs whom more? I'm quickly gaining the opinion that we need them more.

To top the day off we had devotional and then we played the skittle game. The Skittle game is a wild game of teams trying to blow a Skittle off the opposite side of the table. It was a great day!
