This past Saturday Tom and Jaocb helped unload almost 400 boxes of rice for Together We Can / Haiti. This is a ministry we work closely with here in Montrouis. Each box contains 36 meals and will be used in local school and feeding programs. Many of these meals will go to the fishing village of Kalalinde. Even this won't last for long. There are many other schools that would like to participate in these feeding programs. Just today Tom and Dennis had to turn down another request from a school for rice for their students.

Ten of our kids here at Celebration Children's Home are school age and have been sponsored  by Gaston Christian School for this school year. I think I only caught 8 in this picture with two of our little pre-schoolers looking on. Our days start early and everyone is up with the sun getting ready! They love school, but we're not much help with homework since it is all in French. The children speak Creole so this is a situation  we could use some help with. Anyone who is fluent in French could have a wonderful ministry opportunity here.  The official language of Haiti is French and school and grade exams are all in French as well.

Here is a picture of little Anna with our latest round of stomach "stuff." As I write this we are all well, so don't worry. We have just all had our share of sickness. Not sure if it's getting use to the food or living in a children's home. It's probably a little of both. My friend,Suzan, gave Anna this little pink sheet that she loves. She has actually been the healthiest of any of us. I just happened to take this picture while she was under the weather. We know many of you pray for our health, thank you! Please don't stop.

We've recently had the opportunity to take our  kids out to some beautiful beach property owned by another mission.  It's been fun to see these children get to enjoy some of the simple activities we take for granted, just haviing a swim and a picnic. This week our son,Will, is here helping out and making plans for his church to become involved in the work in Haiti. On this particular day we took the three oldest boys. They had a great time and really enjoyed seeing some jet-skis and boats up close.
