Sunday Nov.16

Notes from Bob Glaser

Went to church at the Jeremie cathedral (Cathedral St Louis is our sister parish here at Cathedral of the Assumption).  The church is very old and you need to have faith that God will take care of you to enter a building that looks that unsafe. Mass lasted 2 hours and seemed even longer since I was unable to understand anything that was said.  As I was leaving church I noticed an older man urinating outside the church in a corner of the church in public.  It surprised me but seemed to be normal to the Haitians.

After church we changed into our work clothes and went to fix an electrical problem at our wood working vendor's shop. (Dave - this must be Marcel's shop) This was not our plan for the day but on these trips things always happen that cause a change to our schedule.  We must be adaptable to do the most important thing at the time.  We spent 4 hours and finally got things working.  At that point we decided to call it a day and get some rest. I was never one to take a nap but the afternoon rest and a short nap really helped.

An old guy like me has developed the retirement mentality that when you get tired working a project you quit because there is always tomorrow to complete it.  Doing this work with Tek4Kids is much different.  We have a very limited time and so much to do that it is hard to stop when you get tired.  You learn to persevere in order to complete the job. I mentioned to one of our Hatian employees that they are working me like an old pack mule and he said "welcome to Tek4Kids" (Dave - Sounds like Baba talking!).  I guess my initiation is over.
