its not what you think

Visit the cook…they have the story.

Now if you can just understand the language!

I love to visit with Ceciline and Aimable and watch their magic. It doesn’t always increase your appetite but that’s where you pray God nourishes your body and anything not needed passes with no ill effects. I think I forgot to tell the group that prayer.

I was asking about fresh fruit. Avocado’s were in season but I had oranges on my mind. I was told not in season but found them skinning the thick rinds and using them as their preserving agent for the chicken and turkey….along with some citrons which I did persuade them to use for citronade….yum! No refrigeration – you get creative!

Another part of the mindset to change when in Haiti – there is no Walmart and if it’s not in season, seldom can you rush it unless you go to another part of the country. But 30 miles takes many hours so make do with what you’ve got.

How often do we think that here?? Not much.

The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. Deut 28:12

I’ve been hanging on to this chapter!
