All the children from the streets loved for us to take their pictures and then show them on our camera. They would all giggle when they saw themselves.
This was so sweet, the little boy only had one sucker and he was sharing with his sister.

Here is where we crossed the border to go into Haiti everyday.

Lukesaint is a sweet boy, he rode along with us on some of our chicken runs.
These boys love Murad!
Here is the motorcycle donated to Danita's Children and Bill and Blake will be able to ride across the border to take sick children to the hospital or pick up needed supplies instead of walking a half hour to their home.
Our duties included continuing the cutting of the material for the kids uniforms, finishing the rock wall for the flower bed in the girls compound, amending the soil and replanting the flower beds, and of course spending time with the kids. We visited another orphanage today as well where Emily lives. She works with the kids at both orphanages and handles most of there medical treatments. She has been known to treat as many as 30 to 40 kids a day and she does it with such love and patience.
The highlight of the day came after lunch when we were able to bless Danita's Children with a brand new motorcycle. Motorcycles are the primary mode of transportation in Haiti and you would be amazed to see how creative the Haitians are at loading them down with 3 or 4 people, groceries, parts and supply's. We even saw one guy sitting on a door while driving his motorcycle. The motorcycle for Danita's will be used to get the staff to and from all of the many places they need to be. They will use it to run for food and supply's, trips to the hardware store, transferring people from place to place and perhaps the most important thing they will do with it is transporting sick children to and from the local hospitals for urgent medical care.
All in all it was another full day with Danita's children and just like everyday, we leave physically and emotionally spent. In spite of the sense of exhaustion, I know that there is not a single member of the team that would want it any other way.
