April 12th

Saw Ois today. We have two hold ups. The largest one being that the sister has not yet been made official guardian. There are conflicting ways of going about this and as always in Haiti nothing is easy.

Tried to go used truck shopping.... Yea right so many lost their cars in the quake there is nothing used that is worth anything. Also so far nothing under $20 Thousand US. So we go out again tomorrow. Renting is expensive and paying $20 an hour is expensive. Please pray for us Kez needs a small truck or Jeep to get to as many tent cities as possible.

Saw just unbelievable tent cities today. One is recorded at 50 Thousand people on the only golf course in Haiti and it is privately owned. He wants the people removed No where to put them.

Another 10 Thousand at Delmas 33. It is a muddy mess. You get tired just trying to walk and not fall.

Clean up is limited. People are trying but first you have to get a crew hired. Then find the tools to work with, have a reliable dump truck operator to show up on time and he has to go very far with loads to empty. NIGHTMARE all of it. But everyone goes on that is all they can do.

Saw another burning body today. Thought I had seen my last one of those but no such luck. As people do uncover people they have no choice.

Blessings to all of you
