Today our door bell was ringing all day as our kids were happy to see that we were back. They joined us for our evening prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The prayer time became an hour of praise and worship before the Blessed Sacrament. After tonight’s prayer experience, we have invited them to come every Sunday.

Felician College is preparing to send three students, with our Sister Mary Honorata, during Christmas week to teach English as a second language. It will be an intensive course given to our students here in Jacmel. We look forward to sharing the mission with them.
The night before we returned to Jacmel, we met with Father Gene Squeo, Pastor of St. Patrick’s Parish, Jersey City, NJ, and some of his medical team members, who conduct a medical mission every year near us in Jacmel. They are interested in collaborating with us when we begin our mobile clinic. Plans are being made for the team to come to Jacmel in March, 2014.
God is continuing to “widen our tents” as our relationships grow and we are called to work together for the Kingdom of God here in Haiti.
On Saturday, November 9, before returning to Jacmel, Yvon wanted to show us his new mission–CAD = Welcoming Center in Delmas, a place for young boys and teens who live on the streets. Many are orphans or do not know the whereabouts of their parents. This program is being sponsored by the government. We are so happy that the government is reaching out to young people and doing something for the most neglected. Yvon is a consultant for the program; and our good friend, Joseph, is the new director of the program. This will be a place for living, learning and recreating. We pray that the Good News of Jesus Christ will be proclaimed, and that God will be known, loved, and glorified in this place. This was the first time we saw anything like this in Haiti. Up to this time, we only saw efforts taken by the Church and NGO’s.
