We have been busy trying to figure out where our kids are going to be this Fall and how to go about dealing with all the details. We were so blessed by Dr. Gary and Melissa Lee, who welcomed our daughter Alexis into their home this year. She will be graduating later this month. We are so proud of her.

It’s looking like both Alexis and AJay will be returning to Massachusetts in the Fall – not likely in the same town, but they should be able to see each other regularly. We so appreciate our friends, the Revs. Paul and Cheryl Minor. They are eager to help out by bringing AJay into their home so that he can finish out his last two years of high school at the Minuteman Career and Technical High School.
Today we visited a church in Lexington, MA with AJay to see if he might like to attend there this Fall. We all enjoyed the church. The town itself is just gorgeous at this time of year, with all the flowering trees in bloom. Leaves are beginning to appear on the trees and many are just as colorful in the Spring as they are in the Fall. God’s creation is truly fascinating!

Last Sunday we joined with Pastor Dave & Kristi Tralongo and many friends at the Chair City Community Church in our home town of Gardner, MA. We have grown to love these folks and were looking forward to being with them again. An added joy was seeing our nephew Huguener playing guitar in the worship band. Huguener attended the Mission of Hope International school in Thozin, Grand-Goâve from third grade until he graduated from high school. He also learned to play music at MOHI and played in the church’s worship band. We are blessed to see the Lord using him now at Chair City Community Church to be a part of the team that leads people into times of worship and refreshing with the Lord.

We recently spent some time with the senior chapel at the Worcester Assembly of God. We met some very special people and enjoyed all our conversations about Haiti.
We made some new friends (Ken and Marty) at the Worcester Assembly of God this week!
We hadn’t seen Angela, Nathan and Nyah since shortly after Nyah was born, so that was high on our priority list when we arrived in Massachusetts. We thoroughly enjoyed the reunion.

True to our love of Haiti, it is a given that we are very fond of soccer, as well. The New England Revolution is our hometown team and we were blessed to be able to watch them play (and beat!) New York last night. UNLIKE Haiti, the weather was not quite warm enough for us.

Things continue to go well in Haiti. We are so blessed with the good reports. We had potential for a problem this week and were so proud of our staff for managing the situation so well. We are truly working ourselves out of a “job” at MOHI.
Here are a few photos for your viewing pleasure…
