Canadian volunteers helping out in great ways

On Tuesday Martin, Dan and Donna arrived to help out in various ways for 2 weeks.  It was great to have them come back.  Dan and Donna arrived on the day of the earthquake last year, so it is wonderful to see them come back again and to be with us again as we remembered the earthquake and all that God has done during the past year.

Martin and Dan have been helping with the conference center.  Dan helped our group of carpenters build the trusses and yesterday they started putting up the trusses.  Martin has been working on the electric and plumbing for the conference center.
Today they have been working along side Kyrk to try and clean and organize a storage warehouse.  We have more supplies coming in today and need to get the space clean.  They are so willing to do whatever needs to be done and they are a great help.  Looking forward to having them around for the next week also.
Donna is being a great help in the Child Sponsorship office and also helping with some cleaning, organizing etc.  We are so grateful that all 3 of them were willing to return to serve.

Kyrk, with his head out the window, answering some of Martins questions.  Notice Kyrk chose to stand inside on the solid floor and Martin is standing on the wonderful Haitian scaffolding.

Dan and Martin helping to organize desks in the storage warehouse today.
These desks used to be in a huge disorganized pile.  It took lots of work this morning to get them looking this good.
Oh, the treasures you find when you are dealing with desks.  I think the person that sat at this desk was a gum chewer :)
