The Best is yet to Come!
We've had a great start to school over the past 2 weeks. I love this picture of "the guys" posing. The tallest boy in the picture is Kendy. It just thrills me so much to see him towering over the other boys.
When we first met Kendy, he was maybe 3 years old. He was TINY and suffering from parasites, malnourishment, hunger, and a broken heart as he was living in an orphanage, separated from his parents.
God had other plans for Kendy, though. Today he looks very healthy, is going to school, and has started his own business. He is living with his parents and siblings and he is full of hope. Many of you can feel good about the Lord using YOU to accomplish His will in Kendy's life. I look forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for him in the years to come.
I thought I'd share a few pictures with you today. Here's our preschoolers on the favorite school day in the week, Friday. The children do not have to wear their uniforms on Friday, so they call it the day of color. They get extra outdoor learning time on Fridays.
The primary and high school students love watching their classmates play soccer!
Meal time is everyone's favorite time of day. Right?
Many of you had the opportunity to visit with Pastor Hakine while he was visiting in Massachusetts. He enjoyed his time, but there's no place like home. This picture is from the MOHI church service this morning in St. Etienne.
I was looking through these pictures and realizing how "spoiled" I am in the area of transportation. Look at this picture and notice how many different ways people in Haiti carry their groceries (and/or other goods) home and to market. I am grateful today for a vehicle and nice roads when I am in the States!
Back on the home front. What kind of a grandma would I be, if I didn't brag on this little guy every now and then?!!! This morning, Alante was dedicated to the Lord. His parents committed before the Lord and the church congregation to teach Alante in word and deed to love God and love people. This picture was taken in the lobby at Chair City Church. I can't help but think that this wonderful beginning of Alante's life is just that - the beginning (a WONDERFUL one). The best is yet to come!
The best is yet to come for Haiti, too. Hope is alive and well at MOHI! God's not done with us yet!
Thank you for your interest in MOHI and all the prayers and support you offer! Lex and I so appreciate each one of you!
