Taking a break from the many activities we have been doing, today we began to celebrate Sister Adrianna’s birthday, which is actually tomorrow, on the 25th. We went for a ride to see the beautiful Caribbean Sea and then had delicious chocolate cake with chocolate-pudding icing that we made for her yesterday. Happy Birthday, Sister Adrianna!

Sister Nancy has just finished her first week working with the Mother Angela Clinic. She is very impressed with our doctors who are Haitian and do not have access to the modern diagnostic testing we have in the United States. They totally rely on their clinical skills of listening, feeling and intuitive wisdom. She recognized how they really care for the people.
On Friday, April 15, Sister Nancy made home visits to some of our elderly people. The people are always happy to the see us, especially when we have visitors. 😀
Presence is very much a part of our mission here in Jacmel. We all have the gift and the need to share it with one another. Sisters Adrianna and Nancy are doing that in various ways as they share conversation with our teens, treat wounds or babysit while one of our mothers is working in the Mother Angela kitchen to feed our children.
On Friday, April 8, Sister Nancy Marie, from Enfield, Connecticut, arrived in Jacmel to join us in the Haiti Mission. She will be assisting in the Mother Angela Clinic since she is a nurse.
Sister Nancy has already embraced the Art of Accompaniment by embracing our people and walking with them as she responds to the needs that come to our door. It didn’t take long for that to happen. The father of one of our teens had a heavy bucket of water fall on his foot and cut his toe very badly. We immediately went to make a house call, which meant we needed to crawl through a hole to get there. Sister Nancy was bit surprised to meet the goats and chickens along the way. Akeyi an Ayiti, Sè Nancy! Welcome to Haiti, Sister Nancy!
