Celebrating Thanksgiving in Jacmel

On Sunday, November 18, we celebrated our Thanksgiving dinner with Sr. Janet Lehmen, S.C., Dr. Wanitha Ceus, Jean-Philip, Gesmar, Ludwica and Mathilda. Even in the midst of the problems of the country, we all needed to pause and Give Thanks with Grateful Hearts for the life and blessings we have here in Haiti.

We brought a turkey, which fed us all, from our last visit to the States. From our garden, we were able to make homemade pumpkin pie. It was a blessed feast. As we gathered, we gave thanks for our personal blessings.

After our feast, we gathered for prayer and adoration in thanksgiving for our mission here, as well as for all the blessings received. We also prayed for peace and harmony in the country, as it seems to be in great turmoil during this time.

A drone over our property🤨

Today a drone appeared on our property. It circled for a moment, then hung in the air. It was obvious that it was filming or photographing. I grabbed the phone and took a picture of it. I had the impression that the operator saw me, because the drone immediately rose high and then flew off. I wonder what that means?

Friday night at the movies…

Fridays are special days for our kids. School finishes for the afternoon kids at 3 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. The other special thing is that Friday is movie night. Tonight we showed ANNIE. Many years ago, in the 90’s at Immaculate Conception High School, I had the privilege to direct the play ANNIE. It was a talented cast and crew. I have many beautiful memories of that production!

Today we are showing the movie

The kids loved the movie in French!

Our kids love movie night with popcorn, of course!🤗
