Wah Gah Wan?

That’s patois for “What’s going on?”.

We’re back, and apparently a bit more tired than we thought because we slept through the time that the alarm was supposed to go off. I guess I slid the little button over a bit too far last night. Sigh. Waking up to the radio in the yard and the guys working isn’t always the most pleasant because it makes us feel lazy for sleeping past 6 am while they’re here and ready to work.

We feel really, really, really blessed right now because we left the house boarded up with no one staying here for the week, and came back to find out that there were NO problems while we were gone. The guys came to work. They left from work. Lodissa guarded the yard and no one caused a ruckus. That’s two trips under our belts with no problems and it’s such a gift because it’ll make leaving in the future that much easier. If we’re gone for more than a week or so we’ll still have to find someone to take care of things because people need to be paid and production materials need to be purchased. Jean had done an amazing job of keeping things running in the filter program though and he doesn’t know it yet, but he will be getting a raise this week I think.

Jamaica was amazing. It’s by far one of my favorite places to be now. We had a good time, did a lot, our friends are married and we made some memories…all of which I will share in another post, along with pictures. Today though I have to write grant reports so we can file them, and open up another spot in Chris’ Rotary club to push our new truck grant through. We stopped at the “shop” (oh, how loosely I’m using that term) to check on the old Daihatsu that has been sitting there for about 6 months now. It does have the new motor in it, and it does run, they just had some last kinks to work out. HOPEFULLY we’ll have it back at the end of the week, early next week at the latest. That said, here’s a pic of a Haitian auto repair shop just for your entertainment. Oh yeah, ours is the…oh wait, you can’t see it…

About Leslie

I'm Leslie. Wife. Mother. Missionary. In the day to day my husband and I are responsible for running Clean Water for Haiti, a humanitarian mission that builds and distributes water filters to Haitian families. Living in Haiti full time provides lots of stories, and as I tell my husband, our grandkids probably won't believe most of them. Maybe writing them down will give me some credibility.
