Prosper the work of our hands!

The Lord has certainly shown us how the work that has been done here in the Felician Mission was well done. The third day of work brought more repairs. The shades that were in the activity center were damaged by the heavy rains; and they were changed as Eric and Peter showed the teens how to measure, cut, and hang the new shades. They also installed flood lights in the back of the volunteer house for safety precautions.

Yes, prosper the work of our hands…we are so grateful to God for our brothers, Eric and Peter, who accompany not only us but, most especially, our young teenage boys. These men mentor and model great character and strength as men of God. May God bless them both!

Opening wide the doors for Christ…

Eris and Peter began the day “opening wide the doors for Christ” by fixing our screen doors. This became a lesson of craftsmanship for Jean Philippe, Alberto and James. They learned how to take a door off its hinges properly, how to replace screens, and then how to place new frames on the doors. It is wonderful to watch how Eric and Peter teach, model, mentor these young men. See for yourself the beautiful work our boys did for us.

Sharing their time, talent and treasure!

We welcome back to the Felician Haiti Mission Eric and Peter, who share their time, talent and treasure with us each year. We are so grateful for these two men who come to our mission to share themselves with our teens so they might learn something new. These young teens then feel so good about themselves. This is the cycle of human dignity at its best. And we get to watch its grace before us.

Yes, we keep seeing the Lord and find him in our midst right here. Eric and Peter arrived and got right to work! Another busy day is ahead of us with the guys.

The teens are learning how to use a battery-operated saw to cut down damaged trees.
This was a result of Tropical Storm Laura.

“Give aid to all without exception…for everybody is your neighbor.” Mother Mary Angela

“Give aid to all without exception; your vocation obliges you not to exclude anyone, for everybody is our neighbor.” These words written by our foundress, Mother Mary Angela, were seen in action on Monday, September 7, when the Mother Angela Clinic team accepted its latest invitation to “serve where needed.”

At the request of the pastor from St. Anthony’s parish in Lavaneau, the Mother Angela Clinic team responded with joy as they heard the needs of the poor. Fr. Guy-Robert Gabaud had come with a request to visit his parish community, which was in need of medical care. Many suffer from high blood pressure and diabetes. They have no help, especially since March when COVID-19 struck.

Another community of Sisters near the parish had been running a clinic, but they needed to return to their motherhouse in the Dominican Republic in order to care for their own Sisters. This left the community at Lavaneau without any medical assistance or care since the Sisters left in late March/ early April. We made the commitment to serve the community until the Sisters return.
