Mount Cheam Group - July 2016 | Hungry For Life

July 2016: ,

A team of 10, including HFL team leader Jason Krul and group leader Stephan Hoogendijk, hope to travel to Haiti to work alongside Lemuel ministries in Anse Rouge. The team comprised of secondary students will be working with the locals to help construct a much needed community latrine, assist with the construction of a house, provide food gift baskets during home visits of widows and elderly in the community, and help facilitate a soccer camp for the youth.

Team Testimonials:

"I learned to appreciate all the opportunities in life that I've had, which a lot of Haitians will never get."
"I have so much—it would be wrong for me not to help the poor now that I know what is going on."
"I tend to say that I am aware of needs around me, but I need reminders to keep me on track."
"[In the next six months I will] try my best to to use the many blessings God has given to their fullest potential."
"This trip has really shown me the contrasts in this world and the huge gaps between rich and poor and how unfair this is."
"[This trip] showed me that everything we have at home is a gift from God and should not be wasted/taken advantage of."

Another Adventurous Day

We started off this weekday by waking up to birds incessantly chirping outside our bedroom windows. Personally, I didn’t get a great sleep as the heat of the night kept me from having a good night sleep. Despite that, we woke up at 5am ready to head to the weekly market.

No Ordinary Sunday

Today was no ordinary Sunday for me. To begin with, Dorina, Meghan and I woke up outdoors in the gazebo where we chose to sleep last night to escape our extremely hot bedrooms. After breakfast was served we practiced singing songs that would be sung during the church service.

A Colourful Day

Every new day brings new adventures and new life lessons. Today was no exception. I woke up to the sound of my alarm at 5:45am and was in the gazebo at 6:00 promptly. Of course there were those of us who decide not to wake up at all such as our ‘role model’ Jason.
