Hail

April showers have come to Ouanaminthe and thank goodness. It hasn’t rained since January which has been hard for the farmers. The sisters haven’t been able to plant a large portion of their garden because they’ve been waiting for the rain. The first day of rain brough with it a very unexpected surprise, hail! The sisters had told me before that it hailed but I thought either I didn’t understand or I just didn’t believe them. But I saw it with my very own eyes and immediately asked, Impossilbe, How the heck is their hail in Haiti? Which brought some laughter. I still don’t understand how hail comes when it’s 90 degrees outside.

This blog is about my year in Haiti. I came here not speaking the language, not having a clear idea of what I will be doing to a small, impoverished country in the middle of a crisis. Haitians have A LOT of sayings and one of them is Piti gren fe gro pie bwa, which means a little seed makes a big tree. I hope that my time here will be fruitful and also to participate and observe as Haiti grows and flourishes as well. Seeds need a lot of time, a good foundation, and help from others to grow.
