God is our strong refuge; he is truly our helper in times of trouble. For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes, and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea, Psalm 46:1-2

Pou chèf sanba yo. Se yon chante pitit Kore yo pou yo chante tou dousman. Se Bondye ki tout pwoteksyon nou, se li menm ki tout fòs nou. Li toujou pare pou ban nou sekou lè nou anba tray. Psalm 46:1-2

How was the drinking water?

Good, the five gallon water bottles were plentiful. There was plenty of travelers sickness going around. Almost everyone had their moments, but for the most part the hospital was able to generate and bottle clean drinking water. The showers were hit or miss because the water pressure was inconsisitant. There were three French firefighter/EMTs who were tired of MRE's and vegan food, so they went out one night looking for a restrauant. They found a local restaruant and decieded it would be a good idea to try the crabs. I don't think they will recommend Haitian seafood again. I think they all recovered after a day or two but a little common sence should be enough to keep everyone safe here. In the heat you need to be drinking consistantly and a water bottle hanging from the belt with powdered gator aid or something similar worked pretty well.
