Day 2: Dawn awakens

Good morning. We arrived last night to the warm welcome of Pere Noe. 

After a short meal in PAP, we made the drive up to Hinche (pronounced 'ehnsh'), base camp for us, at St Andre's Church and School. Needless to say, we slept well after a long day's travel. As life changes and the children grow older, I am always struck by how much life also seems to stay the same. The sun rising on the church, electricity and water not always working, the sounds of city awakening, the children gathering for school and the smiles on faces. 

I am very grateful for our safe arrival, for your prayers and for the hospitality of Pere Noe and the church here. Please know you too are in my prayers this morning. 

More to posts to come as our day progresses. 


The Reverend Mark C. McKone-Sweet

  1. Thanks for sharing with us, Mark. There seem to be so much warmth and love there. I love the beautiful smiling faces of those precious children- wonderful gifts of God.
