Caroline walks the ministry of presence 😊

On Wednesday and Thursday, Caroline once again entered our daily day, sharing her presence with our Haitian brothers and sisters. Whether it was helping with homework, visiting the homes of our kids, or visiting the sick, she offered the God life in her to all she met.

Mother Angela Clinic has a visitor

On Wednesday, Caroline went with the Mother Angela Clinic to St. Andrew’s. After a two-hour ride through the mountain on some bumpy roads, we made our way to where patients were waiting for us to arrive. Some left their homes as early as 5 a.m. to be there for 9 a.m., our scheduled arrival time.

Program Outreach Coordinator for Felician Sisters of North America visits Haiti Mission

On Sunday, September 9, Caroline Stanfill, Program Outreach Coordinator for the Felician Sisters of North America, arrived in Jacmel at the Felician Haiti Mission. Her joy beamed as we introduced ourselves and met the Lord in each other. The purpose of her visit is to get to know the Mission, as we offer opportunities for people to share in the art of accompaniment. Daily, she is entering our life here and truly being present to all those she meets. Already she has a friend, James, a shy little boy, who took a liking to Caroline. She taught him how to play ping pong. The next day he came up to us and said: “I want to ask the white lady if she wants to play with me again.” We told him, “Go ask yourself.” Sure enough, he did. The power of presence and relationship is transforming!

Remembering, even here in Haiti…

I still remember and shed a tear every year, as I remember what happened that day we call 9/11.

For me?

Can you imagine never having your own pair of shoes, let alone dress shoes? This little guy for the first time received a new pair of dress shoes and he was ecstatic with joy! Thank you for caring enough to offer a kid a new pair of shoes. Now he can go to school.

Now that school has started, during the week we offer an after-school study program. Kids come with their backpacks and books and work with a teen tutor to do their homework. Kids also have the opportunity to use the computer lab regularly.
