They write – Dear Loved Ones, Greetings. Agronomy Eline his papaya tree. Eline is my student at Beacon Institute studying to become a counselor. On my first day of class, I wanted to know something about each student: what they do in life and why they are studying counseling. Eline told me that he was agronomy with a papaya farm. I am very critical of agronomies we train here because they do not work for food. They like to get office jobs. Haiti has a strange custom that once you graduate from collage you don’t get your hands dirty.
When I visited the papaya farm, I ask Eline to forgive me for me harsh critic. Eline has 400 papaya trees and selling papaya every day to those who know and who visit his farm. He complains of lack of rain and in need of water pump. Lately I provided Eline with a variety of seeds to plant in between papaya trees (I am not sure if that is doable or not in agronomy).
The Eline example is very encouraging to us. In spite of rough life in Haiti, some young people are standing to face it head on instead of risking their life on the ocean waters.
They also write – Dear Loved Ones,
Greeting. To live in Haiti, one needs some nice dose of humor. It breaks the monotony of life and gives us something to lough about. Take this case of banana tree planted in the middle of the road.
Well here is the meaning. The actual president campaigned on basis of bananas. At that time, he had a nice and flourishing banana farm. Now people are waiting to improve roads but it seems that the progress on roads is slow, So from time to time when people are fed up with dust and holes on the roads, they will plant bananas in the middle of the roads as a reminder of campaign promises.
Thank you for praying for our country of Haiti.
