The plan was to install a solar power generating system to operate Radio Lumiere's Cite Lumiere station.
We arrived in Port-au-Prince Friday afternoon and immediately changed our plans due to civil unrest. We spent the night at our favorite guesthouse not far from the airport instead.
We chose to leave under the cover of darkness the next morning to get a start on our over the road trip to the Les Cayes area, where we would be staying at the MEBSH Guest House adjacent to the Cite Lumiere station.
Due to the nationwide unrest, we had challenges obtaining material and we had to modify our travel.
In the end, we were still successful due to the generosity of our friends from Harvest Call who had enough material for us to get our project operational, even though not complete.
We are grateful to God for our safety and for Harvest Call's generosity.
