Woke up this morning at 5:00 to the rooster crowing. Was planning on running before the sun came up, but my eyes wouldn't let me. Must be the jet lag. Woke up again at 6:18, and made it downstairs for mass at 6:30. Afterwards, Dan, Father Charlie and I had breakfast. Father Marc stopped in around 7:00. Things happen really early around here before it gets too hot.
We began discussing my "plan". I think I am going to help "manage" the arts and crafts program too. Sammy (one of the older boys) is a manager now, but doesn't do a very good job of it. I will help them decide what is profitable to make- such as metal pieces- what materials will be needed, and how to train the younger kids.. etc. I walked over to the building with him to check out what we have to work with. Not much. We will make due though- Onal had me paint a little with him as well. I am pretty excited about this job.
Afterwards, I met up with Dan and went to help roll dough to make Haitian bread in the solar oven. Dan really wants to get a bakery built, so he is experiementing and trying to train the guys on making new things. It is a great idea, and hopefully will happen soon! I will post a picture of where they are working right now- the states health department would have a hay day... but dang that bread tastes good! They would especially love Tipa jumping into the huge pile of kernals in the corner of the room for fun. At least a plastic piece is placed over the dough before it goes into the solar oven. That is a great edition.
