Hard workers every day at the Sant Mouvman! The progress this month is crazy – it looks like there’s a week worth of new work every day when we stop by in the afternoon! There’s a core of about ten workers who are now working 7am – 7pm each day, while more workers work 7am – 4pm.
I’d love to have a few more pictures of the class for you – but pulling out my phone means that I have to spend ten minutes of the class just settling kids down again. (Teachers, I’m sure you understand!)
So cool to see this process from planting seeds to seeing the progress of two sisters who looked like twins last June. The girls are 3 years apart (the oldest is five) – yet they were the same size, with sad faces and noses that were constantly running. The sisters, Hope and Jessica, are now two different sizes! They are healthier, starting to look happier, and they represent the potential to turn lives around with proper nutrition given by this ‘miracle plant’.
Laborderie is a community just a few minutes away from our future home in Bercy. This is where I go to church, visit Stefan (a boy who loves our similar names) to help with ESL, and sit in the shade on a chair that is brought out for me to just talk in Creole with girls. The girls have moved from standing off to the side to sitting across from me and asking questions while answering mine. My goal is to focus on this exact group with the theme of worth & beauty as a daughter of THE king. I see beauty and potential in each girl, overlooked or underestimated by others.
And some pictures of day to day life…
Happy Friday! Right now we’re boiling water for rice and visiting with kids who are helping our new intern, Kellie, learn Creole. Tomorrow is Fet Drapo (Flag Day) here in Haiti, we’re already seeing celebrations start today. Kindergartners are running around with miniature flags and as I bought food for family dinner everyone was talking excitedly in market about their plans. Praying for our friends tonight, and how each dinner makes an impact for His kingdom!
