Today is Sunday and church. We were told that church starts early to avoid the heat and we should leave the hotel at 7.30 am to be at church around 8 am and that it was going to be okay that we are arriving half way through the service. The church where we went starts about 6 am and will go for a few hours before the heat of the day kicks in.
The worship was amazing with hundreds of people singing. The preacher was passionate and gave a message about: ‘no matter your situation, whether you are poor or not, God is with you.’
One thing about going to church in Haiti is that it is hot, and people are crammed into together. People were sitting on the stairs and any place they could hear what was going on. (Makes you think that we have it so easy in our church)
After church, some of us went on a home visit nearby with one of the sponsor children of a person on the trip. They had to climb halfway up the hills surrounding Cap Haitien, a steep climb but an amazing visit.
After lunch, we had the opportunity to visit one of the historical sites near Cap-Haitien. The Sans-Souci Palace is a Palace in Haiti in the town of Milot, Nord, located approximately 5 kilometres northeast of the Citadelle Laferrière.
