St. Jude Primary School moves to a new location

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.

Sister Angela rejoices at seeing her friends in Haiti

Sister Angela had the opportunity to visit with her friends, the Sisters of St. Joseph of CLUNY in Port au Prince. She worked with the Sisters in their clinics in 2011 and 2012 for a month each year.

Preparing for school…

On October 1, the new school year begins in Haiti. Through your generosity, the school supplies that were sent in our container in January have been distributed to our kids. Sisters Angela and Janet were a great help in preparing the items for each child.

What a difference a pair of flip flops makes!

Our kids wear their sandals until they are unrecognizable. Flip flops are a welcomed gift to our Haitian brothers and sisters.

We thank Sacred Heart School, Troy, NY, for their generous donation of flip flops!

Ministry of Presence

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!

A time to work and a time to play!

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!
