The truck and payloader were victims of what must have been some interesting episodes. Rich says you can't really see how precariously the truck is "parked". There's a nice drop-off on the other side. The payloader--who knows--looks like it just fell off of its pile of gravel.

The tomato jungle in Mole. The guys tell me there are quite a few green tomatoes now.
This is the church at Goumbier. We had taken pics in January; they've made some progress since then.

Pastor Rob Baker (field administrator here at BHM), Larry Russ, and Rich went out Monday on an investigation expedition. A couple of Haitian pastors had reported a landslide in the mountains that was destroying homes and threatening families. What they found was more of a slump than a landslide--a portion of the mountain is slowly sliding away into the valley--but it has indeed caused a great deal of hardship. There are approximately 35 families in this little mountain community not far from here. The pictures tell the story.
The hike---hard work!A view of the "slump" from across the valley.
This house was a victim of the shifting earth. We hear that folks were sleeping in these houses when they began to crack.
It gives new meaning to the words "a shaky foundation".
