                     Last day of language class

We have had our last week of language classes and now its time to put it into practice and keep learning more words. Kristie has excelled in learning creole. This class gave us a chance to learn the rules of the language how to speak and the sounds.

We had a chance to go to a prayer luncheon last wed with 16 other ministries and got inspired to pray more specific for our ministries, country and world. Met some ministries like one who has a goal of sending 70 Haitian missionaries out of Haiti by 2017 to french speaking countries, and another ones translating the Bible into creole in a easier to read version and so on. Haiti broilers put the luncheon on and will keep this going every 2 weeks, this company is out of Jamaica and the company has values like Chick-fil-a in the states. They give back a lot to missions and have some great setups for orphanages or ministries or communities to set up coups and sell eggs or broilers at 6 weeks old to help support ministries or individuals. The plant happens to be across the street from our place, well 2 miles away.

We had a youth conference for the last week giving 200 youth a safe place to learn and worship Christ while the mardigras carnival went on.

We have a group or well drillers here to repair a rig, put a engine in one and maybe get a few wells drilled in the next couple of weeks.

We also have 2 teams coming over the next 2 weeks. One is 2 families that have 12 people between them to help out then a team from Virgina the next week to help here on the compound. Our youth camp the Brumleys run here is finishing toilets to go with the youth worship building that was left on site by another disaster relief ministry. 2 guys dug the hole 28 feet deep for it. I think it was 10' wide by 8 feet, one big deep hole.

For the last month a couple Tom and Rachel Lambert who are praying where the Lord would send them on the mission field have been serving here and will for the next month are a huge blessing everyday with keeping the behind the scenes work done.
