On Monday, November 5, we went to visit the Deaf Camp in Cabaret. This was one of the places the Felician Sisters served after the earthquake in 2010. It was a hope-filled visit when we saw the different conditions from living in tents to having a small three room house and small garden surrounding the house. However, they still do not have running water and have to carry it from a stream that is faraway from the camp. The joy was seeing friends we made in the summer of 2010, when we first met the people in the Deaf Camp community.They even remembered the songs we taught them.
Dan Conrad, from Madonna University, brought handmade dresses for little girls, as we distributed candy for all!. Even the simplest gift was appreciated.
It is our hope to visit the Deaf Camp at least once a month to continue our relationship with them.
