St. Jude Primary School, which used to be on the same property where we live, has moved to a new location. We will no longer have 3-5 year olds running around at 7 a.m. 😊 The pictures you see are teachers preparing their new classrooms.

Sisters Angela and Janet are feeling more and more comfortable as they share daily life here in Jacmel. The ministry of presence is powerful as the sisters accompany our kids in the simplest way. Sr. Angela has been tutoring and having conversations with our students in French. Sr. Janet enjoys helping and watching our kids do puzzles and color.
Our teens gather for some conversation in English before they work on the computers. Thank you all for your prayers and support! All the good you have done is living on in our students who have such a desire to learn!
This morning some of our teens stopped by for an hour of English conversation. They are so eager to learn.
In the afternoon, it was time for some fun. A friend of ours donated a volleyball net and some volleyballs for our kids. Our boys helped us find a good place for the net, and the games began. At first one of the boys hit the ball so hard it landed on our neighbor’s roof, but this did not stop us. We got another ball, and the whole neighborhood was sharing in the fun. Right after we finished our game, the dark clouds rolled in; and we had a bad rain. We were flooded, as was as everyone else.
As night falls, we do not have any electricity. Maybe lightening struck something. Here we are, in the dark again. Christ be our Light!
