While most of our kids are now finished school for the year, our grade 13 students will be writing their very difficult government exams this week. It doesn't help that the World Cup Soccer is also happening at the same time -- makes it hard to study while the entire rest of the country is cheering on their favorite teams!
Our Grade 13 students, Phania, Magloire Iverlande in this picture
and Delva in this one....
would greatly appreciate your prayers for them as they have tried to do just that as they prepare for these exams. They will be writing them for most of this week.
As for the rest of the HOH kids -- it's summertime! And one of the things the kids get excited about is Mango season. There's nothing quite like a nice refreshing mango in the heat of a summer day...
Another favorite treat is what we call "Ti Carol" little bags of frozen juice that Linda makes for them on occasion.
If you look closely you can see some of the kids dancing when they got theirs!
Some have asked for an update on the health of the kids. Seems like everyone is doing ok these days. Here's an updated picture of the twins with Linda -- as you can see they have grown quite a bit over the past few weeks!
Here are a few more things to hold up in prayer:
- Please continue to pray for Jenny as she is trying to finish up the preparations for our Summer camp program for the HOH kids as well as kids in our local community. She'll be heading to Haiti in about a month and has a lot to finish up before then.
- Pray for Jn Daniel as he is in Port-au-Prince this week trying to get some work done on our vehicle so it will be able to transport Jenny and the team from Miami when they come the end of July.
- Pray for Linda, the young leaders and staff as they have extra work to do to keep everyone busy now that school is out. Pray also as she is setting up the logistics to feed everyone at our summer day camp this year. Other years we've felt bad sending the community kids home at noon so we can feed our kids. This year we are going to try and feed everyone one meal during the day. As you can imagine -- feeding around 300 people every day is quite the challenge.
