We were up early this morning - the first church service starts at 6:30 am, but if you aren't in a seat by 6:15 you will be standing. Haitians definitely don't have a problem squeezing just ONE more person in a row. ;) I took video during the singing, but it was my first time using video on my Mark II so no promises that any of it is in focus.
Bill and I walked around the property after church and he showed me all of the projects he has finished and the ones he is working on. He is amazing and has done so much for Fishers of Men Ministries.
John and I decided we would try the test today to take the pressure off tomorrow. After about 90 minutes of frustration - first a bad Internet connection and then being locked out of the system and attempting to contact the helpline - we decided to use the algebra tutor for another hour. While John was finishing up, I figured out why I was being locked out - and the Internet was working! I sprinted (well, ran as fast as I could in a skirt and Chacos) down the hill to get John. Yep, you guessed it. When we got back up to the laptop, the Internet was out again. That's Haiti for you!
I did get rice and beans today, so I was happy. I even watched the cook getting the coconut milk right from the fresh coconut for the rice! YUM!
John and I also worked on a video! We wanted our friends and family to meet John. Let's hope I didn't have my hand in front of the mike on all of our takes. ;)
Something I really didn't want hear one more time today: "That's Haiti for you!" (usually said while smirking)
Tomorrow (Monday) is really the last day for John to take the test while I am in Haiti - so pray for working Internet, please!!
