Karen Pasquariello continues sharing her journey of her life as a CWO missionary in Haiti in the early 1980’s.
It’s been a busy summer. The ministry of CWO reaches throughout the entire country of Haiti.
We had our youth camp and leadership training in Montrouis at a primitive camp on the ocean. After the camp I will continue working with the leadership and disciple the 6 women from various Haitian churches.
In Croix Des Bouquets, CWO had a medical team work at a village clinic in the isolated countryside.
In Cazeau we sent a CWO team to paint and put a roof on a mission house.
We opened our beautiful office in Port Au Prince where we can hold leadership meetings, rallies, educational seminars, develop youth programs and follow up on the literacy program.
I had the opportunity to visit a friend’s wedding on the Isla of Gonaive. The 2 hour boat trip over the deep blue ocean on a rickety, local sail boat was a bit exciting. I visited a hospital in Bonne Fin and observed major surgery.
We worked at an orphanage in Carrefour.
The eye of hurricane Allen reached 180 mph winds and it passed 70 miles south from where I lived. We did hurricane relief work in the mountains of Fermathe and transported a very sick Haitian woman to the hospital.
I was attacked by the only monkey on the entire island. So far, no problems, just a bite on my leg and some bruises.
Never a dull moment in the life of a missionary in Haiti.
