Our first few days on the ground:
Last week began with a somber memory of the earthquake that shook Haiti just 5 years ago. In those 5 years, much has been done to help but there is still so much more to be done to elimiate extreme poverty in this beautiful country.
We got on the ground just a few days later and hit the ground running. Here are a few highlights from checking in on the rooftop garden at the Maison des Enfants de Dieu orphanage in Port au Prince:

Gracie & Sister Contenta, who was pleased to receive a bushel of beets today from the rooftop garden at the orphanage where she works. She is going to make a special sauce using the greens, and beet salad with the beets for the kids and nannies at the orphanage.
