        Today was more of a laid back day than yesterday, but just as powerful. We got a full tour of Grace Village, got to visit Healing Haiti sponsored elders, and we went to see the Mass Graves Monument for the 2010 Earthquake.

        This was our second time going to see Grace Village and we have been very impressed both times. It is beautiful. The directors and staff there really seem to have it figured out. One of our words of the day that we picked was “progress” because it was amazing to see how much Grace Village has expanded in just two years. They have added a bakery, a restaurant, and have done a great job at strengthening the families in the local areas.

Our second item on the agenda for today was visiting Healing Haiti’s “elders”. We got to come and worship and spend time with these people. It was very powerful. Another one of our words of the day was “respect” because I can not even imagine all of the things that those elders have seen and been through over the years.

The last thing we did was go to the Earthquake Mass Graves Monument. We were told all about what happened on that day in January of 2010, and none of us could even imagine what that would’ve been like. The monument is very beautiful and was made on top of the mass graves of over three hundred thousand people that died in the earthquake.

That was about it for today. We are super excited for what God has in store for us over our last few days!
