It’s hard to say goodbye…

As you all know, the little family that has lived below us is moving. This is a difficult goodbye, especially for Cassandra. She has gotten to know and meet so many Felician Sisters these past months. She still misses her French classes with Sister Angela. Cassandra has quickly learned how to say “Sister Giovanni” very well.

Last night, when we were preparing to leave for these two weeks, Cassandra was with us, helping to clean out the refrigerator. You can imagine how many goodies she was receiving, so she began to sing “Ap di bon fet pou ou.” That is “happy birthday to you.” However, most of the time we see sadness in her face as we get ready to say goodbye, and she moves to her new home.

Our new Haitian kitchen

Outside our home, we started to build a new Haitian kitchen. Lelun, who used to cook for our children, is unable to do so any longer since she is moving to her new home. One of the mothers of our kids has agreed to cook for our food program. Lately, we feel as though all we are doing is purchasing materials for building and preparing spaces, such as Lebrun’s and Lelun’s new home, the mobile clinic rooms, and now our Haitian kitchen. We know that this type of work is not all we are called to do; we know that it is to bring people together in relationship and to build community so the love of Jesus can touch many more lives as we walk in the footprints of Jesus.

We can’t wait until the day when our chapel will be a place for faith formation and catechesis for the people of Jacmel.

Haiti celebrates October as Breast Cancer Awareness month

It is good to know that Haiti joins the rest of the world, putting much effort into breast cancer awareness. Today at the airport, on our way to the States, we witnessed the efforts being made for this awareness. The airport was decorated in pink, and so were the American Airline workers. We supported them in their efforts by purchasing pink wrist bands. We all know someone that has been affected by this disease, whether they are suffering now or may have died. Let us continue to pray and fight for a cure for breast cancer.
