Notes from Haiti: Final Day in Montrouis

Greetings everyone,
As you all know, the last few days have been quite eventful. However, today has been a great final day in Montrouis.  First, we have moved on to new lodgings, and so far, they have been good to us. Sooner or later we were all going to realize how much we appreciate air conditioning, and though that time came a little sooner than we all expected, it did make the night pass by a but more smoothly for everyone. 

It's a good thing, too, because we needed all the energy we could muster to teach the students at St. Paul's how to use the computers. The joy on the faces of the students--and teachers--made all our struggles worth it. Seeing a group of people who did not even know how to type slowly learn how to use computers amazed us all. By the end, despite our language barrier, students were making videos and typing documents. We were hard-pressed to pry them away in the end!

Afterwards, we went back to the seminary to eat a delicious lunch and to clean up the grounds one more time. Once there , we were all able to revel in exactly how beautiful the view at the seminary is.
