Day 7: Hope in our midst

Dear friends,
Today I reached emotional & intellectual capacity. I felt it coming on
yesterday as the extent of the work before the church and people
seemed endless. After driving through blocks of tent cities, first
erected two year ago, we visits the Episcopal Schools:
First was the school at the Cathedral campus, we were drawn in by the
sounds of a great band playing. We met the priest in charge, the first
woman ordained in Haiti in 2003. The school began for preschoolers as
the kids grew older they added more grades. This June they will have
their first graduates taking the national exam so they can attend
college. Below is the band.
