Bon fete!

Last week, Deacon Bill brought a group of volunteers from Georgia to Espwa. One of the many activities they orchestrated during their week in Haiti was a birthday party for all the kids: all 450 kids that is.


At Espwa, birthdays are usually celebrated by month with each child receiving a cup of juice and a cookie. Many of the kids at Espwa don't know for sure when their own birthday is so they are assigned to one of the months. None of the kids are accustomed to a party like this. It was so special to see the smiles on their faces as they walked away with candies and frisbies in their arms.
