Church Services in Haiti

I have been to a church service everyday I have been in Haiti except saturday night. Church services in Haiti are not anything like services in the US. Worship lasts about an hour to an hour and a half, with many different groups singing, rotating, standing, sitting, reciting verses...and then the preaching, well there can be multiple preachers, and they go as long as they want. The longest service was just over 3 hours (and started at 4 am), and the shortest was just over 2 hours. The services have been wonderful and such a blessing, but when you are tired, and you don't understand the language, it can be hard to stay awake, trust me. So for all those people in the US who complain when the pastor goes over the "scheduled" time, go to another country, sit through their service, and you won't be complaining anymore. :)
