When Bill came home for Christmas, one neighbor girl asked him if he would bring her a dress so she could go to church. The Aaron Hymer family took that request and made up \"Christmas\" packages of clothes for over 30 children for us to take to Haiti in January. The second week of January, Skip Lindsey brought several friends to Haiti for 10 days. Along with other donated clothes the team brought, we were able to give over 60 children new dress clothes. The next day, 20 of them showed up to go to church with us!! We also made a \"Christmas Dinner\" for the church and neighbors, had a \"baking school\" for some friends, passed out Operation Christmas Child boxes to an island school, helped harvest logs and run the sawmill, played with the children, built things for the base, and hiked to the market village on the island, stopping to help dig a ditch with some Haitian men. It was a wonderful month with many of the team wanting to return next year.
