Time for a swim
We have completed three Creole classes! Learning is tough 😀 For some reason computer programming languages are easier to learn then real languages. Melissa and I have been working on saying phrases to the workers here at the guest house. It’s been a lot of fun to joke around and try to talk with them.
Some phrases we are learning:
Koman ou ye? – How are you?
Koman ou rele? – What is your name?
M’ pa minustah – I’m not the UN (this one is especially useful when bartering. Make them laugh a little)
bondye bon – God is good.
Apparently there could be a pretty significant storm hit our area on Monday. Don’t waste your prayers on us. We will be fine. We live in a sturdy home. Please pray for the people of Haiti who will ride this storm out in a tent or worse…a structure made of a few sticks and some bed sheets.
Haitian Creations is going to start work on adding an inventory system along with bar code scanners. It is mainly falling on Josh but I have been looking into Bar code scanners and inventory systems for fun to see what is available. The goal is to continue to expand to help even more Haitian women. They can then support their families and through the program share the good news to them!
Helping out with setting up computers and other miscellaneous computer issues. I am so thankful we have internet down in Haiti but it is pretty slow. We are working on updating Beth’s computer to Lion X which is almost a 4gig download. At first it said the download would complete in 22 days! I took it over to a friends house and there it downloaded in about 20 hours. Much better!
I have proposed making a Heartline App for Android & Apple. I look forward to working on that eventually. It will be good to keep the programming skills at work a bit.
We love you and miss you!
