Day 7: Grace Church service & Wahoo Beach resort

Hi, it's Danielle blogging again. We began our day by going up to Grace Church. It was a very uplifting and energetic service. The people in Haiti rely so much on their faith, and you can see it in the way that they worship. Many people raised their hands high in the air and sang with passion.
After church, we drove out to a beach  resort called Wahoo Bay. The beauty of the surroundings there left us awestruck. The ocean was so clear and blue, the sand was beautiful and fine, and mountains on one side reached high. It's always a great experience going to see the beautiful parts of Haiti because for most of the week we are centered in the city of Port-au-Prince. It's also simply a nice time to just wind down and process the past days that we've had here. We spent the time there swimming, snorkeling, relaxing, and of course, jumping off of the water trampoline. This past week here has been one that none of us will ever forget. This country, the hearts of the people here, and each smile that we witness are all so beautiful. We now thank God, the people that helped get us here, and the wonderful staff and people of Haiti for making this week so amazing.
