New Home in Okap

I want to share a brief post and some pictures of my new home in Cap Haitien. The church is renting this house for the next year for missionary personnel to use (thanks David Copley!). Next month, I'll be joined by Eliza Brinkley, soon to be another full time missionary here. Of course Dan Tootle and Kyle Evans will be making their usual rounds from time to time every few months or so. 

My favorite parts about the house are the outdoor spaces (two balconies and the courtyard), the location (close to the market, close to the boulevard, close to the movie theater, close to restaurants, close to church...), and the fact that it is not near a loud bar that plays music late into the night. 

We'll have extra beds (when Dan and Kyle aren't here) so come over and visit!

My room! I inherited these Budweiser sheets from those before me... no explanation as of yet.

That's Dan.

Starting some compost for my future garden! I'll need plants that like shade.

  1. Well located house you get the control of the sea ( Met vil).
    Where do you get all those papers to make the compost?

    1. There were a lot of papers left over in the apartment from where I moved! So I'm recycling them in a way.
