A Busy Sunday in Oakhurst

Susan and I spoke today at two services at our local Methodist Church. What a great group of folks! We shared our Haiti experience and pictures with the congregation. Everyone seemed very interested and they donated some school supplies, money towards the well and a $25 gift certificate to Toys R Us. Between services we enjoyed answering questions and snacking on some Haitian treats that they baked up. Next week we will be in Los Angeles for our "kick off" reception for Be the Power of One. We are expecting about 30 people and we'll share info about our efforts in Pignon. Susan believes that we will soon have enough money for the drilling of the well so we are hoping to finalize drilling plans with Haiti Outreach in August. Both of us would like to be in Pignon when the well is drilled and it will be nice to return before another year passes.

  1. I appreciated your talk at New Community today. Thank you so much for coming to talk to us. I am inspired by your work. Please let me know if I can help in any curricular way. I am a curriculum coordinator for Madera County Office of Education. Can you take an IPad with you? There are aps I could recommend for French/English flashcards, and once most aps are downloaded, they don't require WiFi, so you could download them here, and share them them there. The kids would love it. Hope to hear from you. I will be sure to contribute at the Cool Bean.
