Haiti Travel Update



The team arrived to Port-au-Prince safely and on schedule, met up with their in-country 410 Bridge guide, and began the last leg of their travel - a four hour drive north into the mountains to Bohoc, just outside of Monarch. The team will be staying there in a guest house known as Haiti Unlocked for the week. After a long day of travel, the team arrived at their guest house and had a late supper of chicken noodle soup around 8:00. They will spend some time together reflecting on their day of travels before turning in. They are exhausted from their long journey, we pray that they rest well tonight for their first day in Monarch tomorrow.

Monarch is a farming community with a population of approximately 3,000 people, and is located in a dry, mountainous area of the Central Plateau region close to Bohoc. The community faces great economic challenges. The average monthly income is less than $10 and most of the population is unemployed. In spite of these challenges, Monarch has a phenomenal Leadership Council and the local church is a strong, vibrant place where the community comes together.

Tomorrow the team will meet with the Leadership Council, tour the community, and meet the teachers and students they will be sharing life with this week. Check back here for more updates as their journey unfolds!

Don't forget to leave your prayers and words of love and encouragement in the comments!
