barbellenboone French Market Bean Soup in the making.. Arabella made up the bean mix in her basic cooking class at Co-op last week. Her willingness to be in 'charge' of dinner one night a week makes me realize I better start using actual recipes if I'm gonna teach her to cook.. 4h

barbellenboone To market, to market... Most mornings Marylis walks down to the local market for her fresh produce that she needs for the day. I loved going to the market with her one early morning... the busy, chaotic spot with vendors laying out rows of beautiful fruits, veggies and many other edible items. (This picture is when the market was about over, snapped on the sly when were we passing a different day. We tried to be respectful with putting our cameras up in their faces with out permission, especially when we were in Pete's local community as it could hinder relationships) 1w

barbellenboone This was lunch on our last day in Haiti. This is more selection than the typical weekday fare. {Rice & beans topped with a seasoned sauce with onions potatoes & carrots, a spicy cabbage slaw, beet salad, chicken & plantains. } It was delicious! The children ate the traditional Haitian food well. 1w

barbellenboone So not a good pic but I had to include Natali's reaction to Gianna loving on her !! Gianna finally found someone smaller than her.. Up until then she was the blan (white) baby that was petted & touched everywhere we went :)) Go to internationalfaithmissions.blogspot.com (september) to see Natali's story.. A couple of months ago she had a large mass on her neck removed.. such a sweetie! 2w
  •   aleebee79 This is so great!! I had never thought about their reaction to us-- until we went to China. Tell was stared at & touched frequently! It was explained to us that these aged people had probably never seen a {white} child before!2w
  •   frantzfeatherings She is adorable! I love that you caught her reaction perfectly! Enjoying the memories your sharing with us all on IG! 2w
