It's been a couple of weeks now and the House has returned to it's school year routine. The little ones head out in the morning -- our first leaves home at 6:30 each morning then the next group goes around 7:30. Most of those get home early afternoon when the rest of them head off for afternoon classes. It's an amazing scene to watch play out each day. If you are an outsider it looks a bit chaotic, but in reality Linda is a maestro orchestrating a well choreographed number.
Some of the kids have their new uniforms...
and we are still working on others. It is a bit frustrating as various schools decide to change their uniforms from year to year -- just slightly so you have to get new material and make new uniforms!
We'd ask you to continue to pray for the funds we need to pay for the kid's schooling this year. There are no free schools in our area of Haiti. Everyone has to pay tuition if they are going to attend school. On top of the tuition there is books, uniforms, shoes, supplies to buy. The fact that our kids can go, puts them in a special category as there are many kids who can't attend school because their families can't afford it.
But we feel strongly that an education is the chance for our kids to have the Hope of a Future. It is another level of hope that we seek to provide for the children, youth and young adults in our home. We know not everyone is able to help us out financially, but if you are able to; would you consider helping one of our kids advance in their education this year. And if you can't, please pray with us for this need to be supplied. Our kids pray regularly for this and have incredible faith that God will provide. Please join them in this.
