So blessed to have Jean Philip

There is never a dull moment in the mission. Today, we needed to pump water. Within a few hours, we had no water again. Somewhere water must running, leaking????!!

We asked Jean Phillip to put the pump on again to fill the tank, and that was when we noticed water flowing on the ground by the water tank. We turned off the water and started digging. The cap to the pipe was gone. We looked through the dirt, but no cap. It was now 3:17 p.m. and everything in Jacmel closes at 4:00 p.m. Jean Phillip ran to buy a cap.

You certainly do learn a lot about running a mission and repairing things.

…I have learned that whatever situation I find myself, to be self-sufficient.โ€ Philippians 4:11

“…for Iย have learned, in whatever situation I find myself, to be ยญself-sufficient. I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances…” Philippians 4:11-12

To walk in relationship with our Haitian brothers and sisters is a humbling experience. As we walk the streets and visit people in their homes, we hear again and again how they make do with what they have. They learn how to be self-sufficient in humble circumstances. We always say, that where we are, we can see the Kingdom of God, the face of Jesus in those made poor.

Pray for Haiti ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น

Hundreds of people across Haiti are protesting the alleged misuse of funds from an oil assistance program created by Venezuela.

Protesters blocked roads and burned tires on Wednesday as they demanded more transparency in how the government uses funds from PetroCaribe. The program provides below-market financing for oil for several countries in the region.

An investigation by Haiti’s Senate found that at least 14 former government officials allegedly misused $3.8 billion under the administration of former president Michel Martelly.

Protesters mobilized as Haiti commemorated the death of independence hero Jean-Jacques Dessalines. The protest comes three months after Haiti’s prime minister resigned amid widespread unrest following his failed attempt to increase fuel prices.

Jacmel and every other larger city is having big demonstrations also. Please keep Haiti and our dear people in your prayers.

Learning to make rosaries during the month of October

Our faith formation classes are learning to pray and make rosaries during the month of October. Sr. Janet Marie Kurgan stayed a few days longer to work with us. She helped to teach the teens and kids how to make rosaries.

Here you see them learning to dance with the Magnificat!
