So early in the morning we headed to a large warehouse, ready for some work and adventure!
The smell of soap was almost overwhelming as we stepped into the warehouse and saw tub after tub loaded with small soaps. This organization picks up the extra soaps from hotel rooms in central Florida, cleans and sanitizes them, then ships them to Haiti. Turning waste into a life-saving commodity. All it takes is allot of hands-on teamwork to sort and clean the piles of soaps before sending them through the sanitation process.
Inspecting the soaps
Armed with a potato-peeler, we sorted through hundreds of soaps, peeling off any imperfections or cracks.
Standing for hours gave time for lots of good conversations.
Sorting the piles of shampoos, conditioners, soap, and an occasional hotel key!
It was a fantastic opportunity for our family. At the conclusion of the morning, they had us share a song and take pictures with the staff. Several of the people we met also came to our service over the weekend. May the Lord use our time with them and conversations shared to work in their hearts!
