On Monday, January 28, our Felician friend, Yvon Kernizan, picked up Mark Schafale, Chief Administrative Financial Officer of the Felician Sisters of North American, and Mike Edgar, Director of Properties of the Sisters of North America, at the airport in Port au Prince. He drove them to Jacmel to visit our home. The purpose of the visit was to discuss legal and financial matters of the development the Felician mission here in Jacmel, Haiti.
Mark and Mike were welcomed by Bishop Launay Saturne and other members of the Diocese. We had prepared a busy schedule for them, but found some time to show them the beauty of the Caribbean Sea. They got a full Haiti experience with a flat tire, an unexpected flood in the kitchen and a day without running water.
We are grateful to Yvon who purchased for us some needed items for our Haitian kitchen. He showed us how to make juice from chadek (grapefruit). Yvon showed us the trees by our house which have the kind of leaves that can be used for a tea that is good to prevent high blood pressure and to alleviate colds. He also prepared a delicious Haitian breakfast for us which we all enjoyed.
