After church was shopping time. We drove a long way up into the mountains to a roadside market and got out the money we brought for souvenirs. There were a lot of handcrafted items and we got to practice bargaining for what we wanted to buy. We had to talk down most of the vendors so we could buy our souvenirs for a more reasonable price. Then we got in the Tap Tap and started driving to another marketplace. We drove up one of the mountains and saw some more of the
beautiful parts of Haiti. At the top of the mountain, there was an incredible overlook that showed the ocean and the colorful towns below. We spent another hour or so shopping. On the way back we stopped at a grocery store to buy hot sauce and coffee. Back at the guesthouse, some of us crashed while others of us hung out or played more soccer on the terrace.
Tonight at devotions we talked about how to keep this trip alive in our hearts when we get back home. We all want to keep our hearts open so God can continue growing the seeds that have been sowed on this trip.
