Haiti Mission Update from Marial Corona — Helping Children

childrenGreetings from Port-au-Prince! We are finishing our full first day of work, in which we served at the Children’s Home run by the Missionaries of Charity. The Children’s Home hosts about 80 babies and toddlers with severe malnutrition. The Sisters take care of them so they can be healthy again and go back home. Our role there is to hold them, feed them, love them…. This was a powerful experience for most of our young missionaries who were deeply touched by the need and desire for love of these children.

Helping the children

childrenDuring our lunch break we discussed the history and challenges of Haiti, which helps put our mission in the right perspective. We got home around 5:15 and had an hour break where we were able to enjoy the pool. Afterwards dinner, night sharing and we finished the day with Mass. Now we are preparing the crafts and Easter games will bring for the children of the Immaculate Conception Parish in Gallete Chambon (a rural village near PAP) tomorrow. Please keep us in your prayers, and know you are in ours!
