This week started with a day trip to Jacmel. It is a beautiful city on the south coast of Haiti. To get there, we drove over the mountains--the scenery is breathtaking! We had a team here from Crossroads Church (Red Deer, AB). A couple of them were some of the speakers for the Pastor's Conference the previous week.
Jacmel has a very nice French colonial district with many tile murels and shops to buy hand painted souviners. We enjoyed a great lunch in a hotel that has been standing since 1880. We then went to another hotel over looking the ocean for coffee and on our way out of town, visited The Olive Tree Project - a maternity clinic that was founded and run by a young woman from Devon, Alberta. She does great work to help expectant mothers have healthy babies.
