My husband and I just stayed at the MC guesthouse in PAP for about 12 days over the christmas season. Dale and Joyce Grabarkiewiecz, from Rochester Minnesota, whose ministry is managing the guesthouse were also there. It was a real joy to stay there - the place is clean and airy. The electricity and water are mostly very consistent but there were a few days we were without services. However, we were not bothered by it in the least. Dale and Joyce have a wealth of experience from their 20+ years in Haiti and its a treat to hear their perspective. Its also nice to be so close to the children's home because it makes volunteering so easy. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, and cookingware, but you should bring your own food! Fresh fruit is pretty easy to get in PAP but its not too safe to be going out on your own. We brought some food with us (non perishable stuff) and then made a trip to the grocery store while there. The grocery has an ample selection of mac and cheese, pasta, canned foods, peanut buttter, spam, and many other nonperishable items. I definitely recommend staying at the guesthouse and am looking forward to going back. Thanks Dale and Joyce!!!
